Where to go for discussion and help
BMHA was scheduled at the Dayton HamVention 2020. . . and then the COVID-19 virus response canceled the event. We hope to see you next year in 2021
We have been approved for a BMHA Hamvention Forum for 2020.
The forum will be on Friday, May 15th at 2:40-3:40 in Forum Room 5.
Our forum speaker and presenter will be Steve D'Amico, KC8QVO, who will be demonstrating his completely outfitted bicycle for touring.
Steve has presented before but has made many updates to his setup and will showing many new features.
This is the first time we have had time at the Hamvention on Friday, this has the potential of a larger audience for our forum.
I will again moderate the forum and along with Steves presentation, I will present a few items of interest from my NA0A archive of Newspaper press clippings and pictures of Hartley Alley's bicycle trip.

Just a quick update on the BMHA forum at Dayton. We had about 50-60
attend which is a good turnout on Sunday morning. Both speakers,
Jim, W5AOX and Norm, N9ZKX did a great job and there was lotís of
interest in their bikes with APRS. Both had their bikes on display.
I presented a short update on BMHA past and future.
To me it looked like a smaller turnout this year and there were
more empty spaces in the outdoor flea market than prior years.
Inside exhibits were down also but all the major dealers and
manufactures were there. This was even my year to win one of the
hourly door prizes, about 5 ARRL publications.
