Dayton Hamvention 2014 Recap

Posted by Christian on May 27, 2014
Thanks for visiting us at Hamvention

We had a great time at Hamvention and want to thank the thousands of you that stopped by the booth to grab a catalog, talk shop or just say “hey”.

Here are some of the pics and videos of the action, both at our booth and elsewhere around the show. It was certainly a crowded space!

Also, thanks to everyone who completed an entry to win one of ten Raspberry Pi boards or a Pi kit. Our team is busy sorting through the entries. We expect to randomly select and announce the winners early next week.

Speaking of Raspberry Pi, we had a lot of questions and interest around the little computer - both the kits we were selling at the show and the demos that were on display. John, the MCMer responsible for making the retro gaming system, documented the creation on our blog. It’s an easy project that can be done in a weekend and will provide hours of fun. Be sure to let us know if you create something similar! He’s also written some posts on 3D printing.

Finally here is some info around getting started with the XBMC/RaspBMC media server. Look for write-ups on the other displays from the show on our blog in the near future, including Minecraft Pi, Wireless Raspberry Pi radio with the Wolfson Audio card running pianobar and 7 Segments of Pi.

Here are the most popular bundles from the show, available on our website:

83-14275 83-14461 83-14629

In addition to the Pi, folks were asking about Arduino and BeagleBone boards. We didn't have any for sale at the show, but offer both on our website.


Overall, we had a great time at Hamvention, and hope you did as well. We look forward to seeing you next year.
