HamXposition was excellent this year. I enjoyed the workshops, the banquet and the flea market (when it wasn’t raining). Looking forward to 2024. As a presenter, my room was well appointed, I was able to come in and plug and play with my chromebook, no worries. Thanks!
It was nice to see my friends. Many great presentations.
… Congrats to all who organized and helped out at  HamXposition. I had a great time. Met a lot of new people and saw plenty of friends from Maine and elsewhere as well. Thank you to all involved. It was well done!
I want to express our gratitude for the Emcomm Direct Messaging Steering Committee, and my personal gratitude as well. The ability to showcase our group at a very large ARRL Amateur Radio Exposition was rewarding beyond expectations. The number of concurrent speakers made the size of our audience gratifying. Many took my business card. We are hoping for some follow-ups.
The facility was wonderful. Having the projector all set up was very helpful. My only regret was not having the time to attend other sessions. My personal enjoyment was meeting Stuart [Solomon, W1SHS] and Frank O’Laughlin, WQ1O, a member of the ETO (Winlink Thursday) Steering Committee, too. Thank you.
Thank you all for running the HamXposition, you are all the best of people that devote lots of your time and effort and I DO APPRECIATE ALL YOU DO FOR US. Ham radio is the best hobby with many great people and you are all great people that step up and make this hobby a wonderful joy!! Thank you all again!!!
It’s a great Expo with superb forums and a very positive atmosphere. I have been coming for five years and will be back next time and into the future.
Thank you for putting on an excellent Amateur Radio convention. I give this one an “A.”
… Thank you for the opportunity to give my Drill PKT presentation. I feel that it had a good turnout of about 20 in the room. That and I got a lot of good questions and interaction with the group.”
I have attended HamXpostion as a vendor two times so far. I especially like having the convention and hotel in one building, making it very convenient. The venue is very nice and there is easy access for unloading and setting up. I plan on attending again next year.”
I had a great time and really like the new venue in Marlboro. I attended the DX dinner on Friday evening and after an enjoyable meal we were treated to an excellent presentation by Don – N1DG on the E51D DX-pedition that was running during the eXpo. Don’s explanation on the new RIB (Radio In a Box) technology now being employed by some current DX-peditions was fascinating and demonstrates the ability of the Ham community to rise to the occasion and develop a new way to activate rare DX entities with minimal human impact on the fragile environment of some locations.
Following the dinner and presentation, we spent the following hours discussing DX as well as chatting with many old acquaintances. That is exactly what makes these in person gatherings so valuable.
Last weekend’s HamXposition was a success. The technical programming rivaled Dayton alongside something for every interest with two or three options to choose from every hour. At night, nationally-known keynote speakers shared their personal experiences and perspectives on the future of DXpeditioning (Friday) and fractal antennas (Saturday).
Where and when can you meet face to face with your fellow New England hams? At HamXposition, of course. There’s no other event that compares. It’s the only event in the New England ham calendar that brings us all together in an informal way so that we can trade stories and one another’s company. HamXposition has been an event for the last few decades and presents flea market facilities as well as indoor new equipment showings, interesting forums and new equipment to see. It’s a “must see” for active hams in W1 land. Hope to see you there.
I look forward to the Northeast HamXposition every year, for a number of reasons: Meeting old friends; learning a lot by attending technical sessions; meeting old friends; the big outdoor flea market; meeting old friends; being able to speak to vendors and see their products; and — last but not least — meeting old friends.
The HamExposition of 2023 was probably one of the best ones I have been to. Despite the rainout on that Friday at the flea market outside, there was plenty of activity with the expansion of the forums during that day. It was also tough to decide which ones to go to, they were so good. The flea market was as usual well attended, complimented by the EmComm trailer demonstration. I heard many people express praise in how this event was planned. Great job!
I see greatness in future conventions if the committee continues to focus on providing quality content and activity for a wide audience.
It was great to see so many YLs at the YL Forum at the HamXposition this year—participants commented on what they liked in amateur radio-so many different aspects were shared! We learned from each other and there was good camaraderie.
HamXposition was jam-packed with presentations on the latest projects and technologies. Choosing which I could attend left me wanting more time to explore them. The Rhode Island section meeting was a great opportunity to connect with local hams. For me, the opportunity to share our club project on Mesh networking to a wide audience was very satisfying.
