18.02.2021 | Kick-off Ham Radio 2021
For the upcoming Ham Radio, there will be a new hall layout for a variety of reasons: Zeppelin Cat Hall A1 is currently serving as a transitional training and play venue for VfB Friedrichshafen’s volleyball players after the ZF Arena was closed due to structural defects. The district vaccination center is currently hosted in Hall A2. For this reason, the commercial exhibitors and associations will be occupying Halls A3 and A4, and the radio amateurs will be able to make exciting discoveries at the flea market in Halls B1 and B2. In this way there will be plenty of space available for both exhibitors and visitors. Instead of taking place on the stage in Foyer West, presentations will be given in the conference rooms and transmitted via video stream. “This year the Ham Radio will again be presenting a wide range of measuring instruments, antennas, and electrical engineering equipment. However, the event will differ a bit from what was seen in previous years. For example, the number of live presentations is being reduced, and there will be no youth camp and no HAM-Rallye. Tickets can only be purchased online,” Project Manager Petra Rathgeber says. DARC is currently pulling out all the stops to prepare for the 71st meet-up on Lake Constance. The Ham Radio is the world’s first amateur radio exhibition to be held since the pandemic began.
Parking spots for RVs/caravans and opening hours
For visitors, the trade fair also offers the option of staying overnight on a parking lot for RVs and caravans close to the exhibition. The Ham Radio will take place in Friedrichshafen from Friday, June 25, to Sunday, June 27, 2021, and will be open daily from 9 am to 6 pm, on Sunday from 9 am to 3 pm.
