Winterfest 2023 is back at the Gateway Convention Center (Collinsville,
IL) with over 180 vendors, 240 tables, 1200+ attendees, and 30,000 square
feet of indoor vendor space. This hamfest is a don’t miss opportunity with
Education Alley, all-day forums, and a DX/ARRL Friday night banquet!
Winterfest will be held on January 28th, 2023. All current info can be
found at the link below.

Winterfest is the largest annual Hamfest in the Saint Louis metropolitan
and bi-state area and draws ham attendees from the states of MO, KS, IL,
IA, and IN. SLSRC plans to make this Winterfest the largest and best in the
history of the event.

ARRL Midwest Division Convention

Winterfest has been chosen as the ARRL Midwest Division convention in 2023.
The Midwest ARRL Division covers the states of MO, IA, KS, & NE. In
addition to the convention meetings, there will also be QSL card checking
and VE testing. Additional details related to the ARRL Midwest Division
Convention will be found at the Midwest Division website -

W9DYV Symposium

The W9DYV Radio Symposium, January 27, 2023, keeps Wes Schum’s innovative
spirit alive by educating Today’s Hams on the hobby’s rich technological
history, encouragement of at-home experimentation, and by providing
grassroots introductions to latest-generation communications techniques. No
matter your particular Ham Radio Interest, Winterfest’s excellent array of
Symposium forums, commercial vendors, and bone-yard treats will relegate
Covid to the rear-view mirror, bring smiles to your faces – and more rigs
and accessories to the shack!

Radio, STEM projects, robotics, space, ARISS, satellites, and the maker
