Greetings VHF+ Operators!
As this year's Conference President, I, along with the Conference's host
team, cordially invite you to attend the 54th annual Central States VHF
Society Conference, which is being held at the Radisson Hotel located on the
beautiful riverfront of the Mississippi River in La Crosse, Wisconsin on
July 24th and 25th, 2020.
This year's event will have all the great activities you've come to expect
from a CSVHFS Conference: technical presentations, antenna range, noise
figure lab, rover row and dish bowl, Thursday evening social activity,
Friday evening trade-fest, dealer room, hospitality suite for evening
socializing, fun family activities, and a closing banquet with a guest
speaker and a prize table.
If you have never been to a CSVHFS conference before, you will find it a
great event where you will learn many new things, meet new people, and
connect with others you have talked to on-the-air. If you are new to
VHF-and-above operating, you will want to be sure to attend the perennial
favorite, VHF 101, an alternate track talk designed to get new VHFers
successfully on the air. One thing we are certain of: if you attend the
CSVHFS conference, you will go home reinvigorated about operating and
experimenting on the bands above 50 MHz!
We are sending this letter out early in the new year so that you can make
time in your busy summer schedule to attend. From past experience, most
attendees arrive on Thursday (July 23rd) and depart on Sunday (July 26th).
La Crosse, Wisconsin is easy to get to either by car or air. Interstate 90
passes directly through the city, and the La Crosse Airport (LSE) has direct
connections with 3 major airports: Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP),
Chicago-O'Hare (ORD), and Detroit (DTW). Hotel accommodations at the special
conference rate will be available beginning around February 1st.
Registration for the conference will open around May 1st. Be sure to visit
the conference website at http://2020.csvhfs.org/ for ongoing updates and
further information. Please direct any questions you may have about the
Conference to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you in La Crosse in late July!
