The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station team (ARISS) team and Hamvention® will be working together again this year, as ARISS kicks off its 2018 fundraising campaign. That will include a special drawing on the last day of Hamvention to award an ARISS Challenge Coin display, valued at $200.
“We are happy to be able to make the ARISS Challenge Coin display a very special part of Sunday’s prize awards,” said 2018 Hamvention Prize Committee Chairman Bill Serra, N8NRT. The prize features two ARISS Challenge Coins positioned side by side in a display that shows off each side of the coin.
Noting Hamvention’s 2018 theme of “Amateur Radio…Serving the Community,” ARISS pointed out that it “serves communities by inspiring great numbers of youth to explore science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and Amateur Radio.”
