Hamvention News 2009
The Latest News: (March 6, 2009)
We have been officially approved for the BMHA Forum at the 2009 Dayton
Date: May 17, 2009 Time: 0930-1115 Room: Room 4
Room 4 looks to be one of the larger rooms and I think this is the first
time in this room.
For this years program we are encouraging as many bicycle mobile setup's
as possible to be on display. I know of at least 4 who are planning on
bringing their bicycle display. No comittment is necessary but if you are
planning to bring your mobile bike setup, please drop me an email to let me
know your plans. For those who have a powerpoint or presentation and would
like to present, please let me know and I will have you listed as one of our
speakers and you will receive a Hamvention pass for your efforts.
This could be the largest mobile bicycle display in Hamvention history if
enough of us bring our setup.
There will be more information in the next issue of the BMHA Newsletter
that is currently in the works. If you have additional articles, please get
them to Norm, N9ZKS our newsletter editor.
Hope to see many of you at Dayton, both the BMHA ride on Saturday and the
Forum on Sunday morning.

Hamvention Bike Ride 2009
The Latest News: (March 23, 2008)
It is a very large Microsoft Word file, but
here is the definitive information --
including maps and photos.
Information about the Wolf Creek Bike Trail:
Here are 2 links to .jpg's of the trail from Google
Earth with a few pointers put into the image. These are on my Smugmug image
server, so you can just link to them if you want, or copy them to your
webserver if that works better for you.
This is the overview of the Dayton area with the
trail and trail heads shown.
This link is for the .jpg the trail head for the
start of the ride.

About the Ride (updated 24 February 2009):
Well, looks like no one is going to just "Jump In
There" to help plan and organize this, so I guess I will give it a go if no
one else (some one closer ?) wants to speak up and give it a try.
After talking with a few people, I think that the
best time would be Saturday afternoon with a start time of about 4 PM.
This should give people a fair amount of time all
day Friday and Saturday morning and part of the afternoon to check out the
Hamvention. The ride length and speed will be up to the individual.
The trail should provide about 20+ miles of travel
if you wish to go to each end.
I hope that we can have a period of time for 'show
and tell' of everyone's 'rolling ham shack' and get on the air for a QSO!
It looks like a very easy ride on paved surface
with a few street crossings but no riding 'with' traffic. There are some
places to stop for food and drink along the trail too.
We plan to start at the trail head at the
intersection of Arlington Rd and Upper Lewisburg Salem Rd, which is just off
I-70 exit 21 at Brookville. This trail head has parking, several places to
eat near by. It is just across the street from Rob's Restaurant and from
what I am told it is great and that is frequented by the local bike club on
their Saturday morning rides.. so that sounds like a great endorsement to
Looking to hear from the group, I hope that we can
have a great turn out!
