FRIEDRICHSHAFEN 2013 The Amateur Radio Adventure – DXpedition
The time is almost upon us.
I am packing my bags and programming radio’s for use whilst away.
In a few days time, everyone in Europe will meet at Lake Constance – everyone interested in shortwave radio, wireless telegraphy and radio telephony.
The Ham Radio, Europe’s largest amateur radio exhibition, will open its doors from Friday, June 28.
Presenting trends, information and lectures on amateur radio topics, it also serves as a meeting point for radio enthusiasts from around the globe.
180 exhibitors from 26 countries will be on hand, presenting their products and innovations.
This year’s motto for the Ham Radio, “The Amateur Radio Adventure – DXpedition”, is proof that amateur radio is not just confined to the basement, but also inspires adventure and travel. Is indicated by the abbreviation DX, which stands for distance, DXers travel to remote areas across the world to operate their radios there.
At the 64th Lake Constance Meeting of the German Amateur Radio Club (DARC), which traditionally takes place during the Ham Radio, DXpedition members will report on their experiences and their travels, ranging from destinations in the Indian or Atlantic Oceans or even Africa.
The Ham Radio takes place from Friday, June 28 until Sunday, June 30, 2013 in Friedrichshafen. Daily passes cost 9€ or 8€ in advance.
A three day pass is available for 20€ or 18€ in advance.

Look forward to seeing you all there. G4LUE Ernie
