    Hello, Lee, Nice to see you at Dayton.
    Well, it's over now, we're all back home. I had a great time again! Some things I did notice:
    Empty booths in the buildings. This is odd, considering that we - R. W. Antennastore - couldn't get a spot in a building, but were out in the big tent. Rohn Towers was a no-show. I don't recall seeing Texas Towers either. Giga Parts was nowhere to be found.
    There was, however, a guy selling funny socks - in the building? A realtor selling time shares - in the building? Foot powder? Several other "vendors" of questionable ham radio or electronics value in the buildings. Is this the new thing - sell booths to anybody, no requirement to have any relation to ham radio? Because the same thing was out in the two big tents; splat balls, air chairs, etc....???
    What is your take on this?

    I had a blast there. Moving to Xenia was the best thing they could have done. I'm sure its great for Xenia too.

    I don't have a problem with non-ham related stuff, for the most part. Hams are people too! Just ask one!

    Overall...great time. Sold lotsa books....and even unloaded my old stash of Opuses.
