We are 24 hours away from our live dayton hamvention broadcast.  Help us spread the word to  

anyone interested.? 

This will be our 10 th year to broadcast Dayton Hamvention . Our viewers have grown to  

about 50,000 in over 150 countries during the last Hamvention broadcast. 
Hamvention is May 20-22 but we actually go live  TOMORROW at 1300 UTC Wed May 16th as we  

pull out of our driveway and broadcast the 550 mile drive live. 
The video site is http://w5kub.com and we are on 365 days a year when not broadcasting a  

live ham event. Over the years we have had special guests on the broadcasts. 

We have over $8000 in prizes to give out again this year to lucky viewers.  Some of our  

prizes are weather stations, Heil headsets, Comet CAA-500 antenna analyzers, AlphaAmp watt  

meters, D-star radios, yasue HTs, TenTec desk mics, G5RV antennas, and much more.  After  

hamvention, we will be broadcasting our 550 mile trip back to Memphis on Sunday afternoon. 

We have installed a new Ka Band internet satellite uplink this year in our fleamarket space  

so we will be broadcasting High Def video this year. This is a first for us. 

Log into the chat room and talk directly to us, ask questions to those we are interviewing  

or just chat with each other. 

Dayton Hamvention is Fri, Sat, Sun May 18,18,20 

we also will broadcast the 550 mile drive (10 Hours) from Memphis, Tn to Dayton Ohio  

Wednesday may 16 

We will be setting up our fleamarket space and the satellite uplink on Thursday May 17 and  

will broadcast that. 

We will start giving out prizes on Wed morning. 

go to http://w5kub.com for all the fun 

also join us on our facebook broadcast page at  


Thanks, Tom W5KUB
