I have been contacted by a couple of people asking whether I will be organising a formal dinner at this year’s Ham Radio in Friedrichshafen.
While we are at the highest new infection rate ever (just short of 300,000 new infections every day) in Germany at the moment, who knows what will happen with the Ham Radio event. At the moment it is still planning to go ahead on June 24-26.
I feel the likelihood is that there will be fewer hams willing to travel to Germany if there are quarantine entry restrictions in place and generally with such high infection rates, fewer people even from within Germany, will be willing to travel.
Therefore it is not fair to a restaurant to reserve a table for the usual 15 people or so and then have to cancel it or reduce the numbers.
I suggest that those at FN and interested in SOTA meet as usual at noon on Friday or Saturday by the QSL board and decide on a good restaurant in a central location for us all to meet up at, in the evening. Or possibly two different or overlapping groups on the two evenings.
If there are those coming who have not yet booked accommodation, I suggest that you look into this asap and book something that you can cancel up to a week or so before the event, otherwise you may not get accommodation at a reasonable price.
