Dayton BMHA 2022 Forum:
Bicycle Mobile Hams of America (The 31st Annual BMHA forum at Hamvention)
The Forum schedule for the Hamvention now has us listed for our forum at 9:15 am, Room 1 on Sunday May 22. Hopefully the forum room will be open a little early so we can gather in the room. We only have the one hour so we will be as efficient as we can to allow time for our main speaker and presenter. I look forward to the forum and hope to see many of you there again.
Moderator: Mike Nickolaus, NF0N
Bicycle Mobile Hams of America got its start in1989 when a QST article by Hartley Alley, NA0A asked hams who operate their radios while bicycle-mobile to get together and form a group. BMHA hosts a website along with the BMHA Yahoo Groups forum.
