    Detailed information at the link above, didn't see a thread about it. I will be attending my fist HamExpo in several years, I am hoping that the fears of COVID-19 does not prevent it from being the same great hamfest that it has been in past years. If there are any Texas QRZ'ers who are going to be there let me know and we can can have an "eyeball QSL" (do people still say that?).

    I am more worried about the fact that storms are in the forecast for Saturday in Belton than the Coronavirus. Hopefully it holds long enough for some tailgating. Will be curious to see what vendors will be there, I know WB0W is usually there.

    Yep, same here. Watching the WX forecast, but not looking too good at the moment. Still 4 days out, so things could still change (I hope).

    Springtime in Texas .....

    Yep, springtime in Texas .....

    If it was just light rain in the forecast, I would probably go, but the current forecast is for storms on Saturday. By Thursday we should have a better idea about what time of day unfavorable WX will be in the area. Hopefully any storms will hold off until Saturday evening.

    I'm much more concerned with catching, Osteoarthritis, Gout, Any number of Wheezing issues, Rickets, Scurvy and a whole host of other Skin problems from a Hamfest crowd.
