Even through the Dayton Hamvention doesn't start until Friday, the arrivals 
have begun.

My live Dayton area UIwebserver map at


has been pretty quiet the last three or four days. It has now lit up in the 
last two hours or so with lots of out-of-towners.

Note that this map is being generated from about 250 miles away via the APRS-IS 
feed only filtered for the Dayton area; i.e.not off-the-air via RF.  As a 
result, there may be even more activity that isn't showing,  due to the local 
igates being overloaded by the traffic.

I've been tryng to PING the mobiles I see arriving. Less than 1 in 10 are 
responding.  The rest are apparently dumb (or should I say DEAF) transmit-only
