The Dayton Hamvention has a new home in Xenia, Ohio! 2017 was a success and planning for HV2018 has been in full swing.

Greene County has agreed to build a new building to be done in time for HV!9. This new building will be on the EXPO/Fairground property in close proximity to the rest of the campus. It will have heat and A/C.

More info coming about upgrades to the Flea Market Space and addressing the mud issues.

I reside about 7 miles south of Xenia, Ohio in the beautiful southern Ohio rolling countryside. I have been very actively involved with the Dayton Amateur Radio Association (DARA-Hamvention) for many years serving as the President and as the Hamvention General Chairman for 2011 and 2012

I am currently Treasurer/Board member of DARA and Finance Chair for Hamvention. This is an all volunteer event with most of the proceeds going back to the amateur radio community!

Official Spokesperson for Hamvention 2018. 

Co Chair for the Hamvention Awards Committee 2018.

Former Peace Corps Volunteer..Tunisia 1974 1975.

I have also served as president of our local EMA board (Emergency Management Authority). I successfully sold my manufacturing business just before the market crashed (dumb luck) and am enjoying some leisure time and have been working in many different companies to improve their profitability as well as serving on many company boards.

Net control operator at the Wilmington, Ohio National Weather Service Offices covering half of Ohio, Eastern Indiana and Northern Kentucky.

I am past chairman of the DRMA (Dayton Regional Manufacturing Association).

I enjoy HF as well as building and experimenting with antennas. Other hobbies include hiking, world traveling, and music. I currently play music with an eclectic acoustic music group known as The Wingwalkers www.thewingwalkersband.com . We play festivals and other engagements in the midwest. If you are at the Hamvention 2018 please say hello. 

I was invited to be a keynote speaker at HAM Radio 2012 in Germany and was extremely impressed with the event. was a speaker in 2017 I plan to  attend in 2018 to visit many friends in Friedrichschafen.

Was in Doha, Qatar in December of 2013 and 2012 and participated on their special event event station A71QND. Also, was a keynote speaker at a special presentation of Amateur Radio in Doha and a speaker at Qatar University. They are very dedicated to amateur radio and I expect we will continue to see their involvement and contribution grow. 

I was also invited and attend the National Institute of Amateur Radio general meeting in Hyderabad, India.While there I met with many government officials in both Hyderabad and New Delhi at the request of amateurs in India. My friends in India have done amazing work promoting amateur radio despite so many obstacles. They always send a large contingent to Hamvention.  

Had to opportunity to speak at the magnificent ARRL Hartford Convention about the many things DARA is doing to promote youth in amateur radio.

I was a forum speaker at HAMCATION 2015, 2017. Will be a forum speaker there again in 2018! What a great event.

Attended the Amateur Radio Event in Tokyo August 2016 and again in 2017. Returning in 2018.

Sadly, I have lost my younger brother, Dave KB8OCP, an amazing human and amateur radio operator. Even though he came into the hobby later than I he taught me a great deal! I miss you my brother! Please support the Dave Kalter Memorial Youth DXpedition!
