International Amateur Radio Exhibition in Friedrichshafen from June 24 to 26, 2022

Friedrichshafen – What do the South Pole and the International Space Station have in common? Both are at times inhabited by radio enthusiasts, and both can use appropriate equipment to send radio signals all over the world. So after a two-year break, it was a natural choice to use the slogan of “Seeing Friends Again” for the 45th Ham Radio International Amateur Radio Exhibition, which will be held from June 24 to 26, 2022. “We’ve been waiting a long time, and now the time has finally come – fairs are allowed to take place again. Starting at the end of March, we returned to our event implementation activities with a tried and tested safety and hygiene concept. Together with our exhibitors and partners, we are looking forward to a long-awaited get-together with the international amateur radio industry,” says Project Manager Petra Rathgeber.

Planning for Europe’s largest amateur radio exhibition is in full swing, and anticipation for the upcoming fair is building among amateur radio operators and exhibitors. After a break lasting two years, DARC e.V. is organizing an interesting and varied supporting program and looking forward to the radio community finally being able to meet again. DARC Chairman Christian Entsfellner, DL3MBG, explains: “This year we chose the slogan ‘Seeing Friends Again’ because that is exactly what we’ve been missing over the past two years of the pandemic in particular. Despite all the difficulties, the amateur radio operators still managed to keep in touch during the pandemic. This demonstrates how valuable and helpful the amateur radio operator community is. It’s high time for personal contact again – with due attention to the safety of each individual, of course.”
