Dayton Forums

Here is the info on some of the forums of interest to AMSAT members at the
Dayton Hamvention. It is unofficial in that I prepared the message but it
was coopied from Dayton Hamevention web: www.hamvention.org and reformatted.

Note that Forums start at 8 AM on Friday but the inside exhibit area does
not open until the usual 12 Noon time. It also says that Room numbers have
changed but gives no information as to their new locations!
