who all is going to Dayton?
i know i'm going
I'll be there all day Saturday but will miss Friday & Sunday.
After 10 years, K9PG has pulled my arm enough to go this year, but only a short trip. Arriving Wed and leaving Fri night.
Well, at least he didn't pull your finger. [cue: rimshot]
You'll find me cruising the flea market for most of Friday and much of Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon are for selected forums.
I still expect to go, but it is less certain than it was three months ago. I have schedule conflicts just prior to and just after the Hamvention. No problem with the weekend itself, but they impinge upon the travel. It'll be a real juggling act, but if I can do it, it's worth the trouble!
Nope, I am in Spain. Too costly to fly to Dayton.
I, and my good chaste wife Sister Mary Eggroll, will be there (Providing the Town Car doesn't get SWALLOWED UP In a Tornado on the way there!)
I'll be there all three days. I'll be in the SKCC both 2-3 on Friday--though I don't know the hall and booth number yet.
I hope some of you guys lucky enough to be going to Dayton will talk up the online petition to the FCC asking them to require HOA's and developers to make "reasonable accomodations" for amateur antennas in antenna restricted developments. The petition is on the change.org website under "amateur radio." You can go directly to the petition at the link below...
I doubt if I am going and I live in Dayton AND was offered a FREE ticket by the DARA president,
along with the opportunity to drive one of the golf carts to haul all your stuff out to your cars.
Doubt if I would have anybody available to "Babysit" the wifoid while I was gone.
DARA loaned me one of their CH-250 antennas for HF.
The DARA President and the Hamvention Chairman's son put it up for me, while the chairman did the
How many people can claim that they watched the President of a MAJOR amateur radio club
walking around their roof putting up a members antenna??!!
I'll be there. Boots, hat, goofy grin, etc.
My buddy KA7JUN will also be with me. He's the shorter, hairier one who looke like a troll. In fact, walking up to him and asking him where his bridge is would be funny.
If all you guys are going to Dayton who will be left here for me to annoy?

I'm arriving Thursday and leaving Sunday!! WOOT WOOT!!
They are all going to Dayton BECAUSE of you. Isn't that enough?
The truth will out.

No, no, no! Who is not on the Zed.
WHO IS ON FIRST.
Not I. The grand or two it would cost to go would be better spent here on what I might buy if I'm there!
Besides, airports have become such an experience that I'd rather avoid the body-search than fly.
I'm going to Dayton coming in on the 16th ,from SEATAC and leaving on Monday. Is there a freq that we are going to be on? VHF/UHF?
14.300 is the only one you need.
