Broadcast Industry Radio Amateurs Gather at Annual NAB Convention in Vegas

A few thousand of the more than 103,000 broadcasting industry professionals from around the world in Las Vegas April 22-27 for the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) convention were radio amateurs. Nevada Section ARRL volunteers, under the guidance of Section Manager John Bigley, N7UR, and assisted by Section Public Information Coordinator Chuck Farnham, WD6CHC, were on hand to greet visitors and answer any questions they might have about ARRL membership and benefits, FCC regulations, licensing, operating activities, and other Amateur Radio topics.

“A large number of those hams stopping by the ARRL booth were international visitors, including Ajaya Gupta, VU2DED, of Mumbai, India, who presented the Nevada hams with a statuette of the State Emblem of India, which was adopted when India became a republic in 1950,” recounted Bigley. “The statuette was displayed in the booth for the duration of the convention.”
