W5KUB is not associated in any way with the Dayton Hamvention. We do this as a hobby and at no cost to the ham community. It cost a substantial amount of cash to put on a broadcast of this size. Any donations are appreciated using the Paypal donation button on our website but it is not required. We just want hams to have fun. Many can not make this trip because of distance, finances, or sickness. We get great pleasure out of doing this for those people. 


Our web site is up 365 days a year. When not live, we run recorded videos. Come join us anytime. 


Also sorry but we had to change the chat room at the last minute. This new service does not support any IRC clients such as Mirc.   We provide a built in client on our page. 




Thanks, Tom W5KUB
