    Thanks very much to all of you who attended the Orlando
    HamCation this past weekend. At this point, every indication
    is that it was larger than last year. Please mark your
    calendar now for next year -- February 11, 12, and 13, 2011.
    Not on Valentines Day next year!

    I wish we could have controlled the weather, especially on
    Friday with the downpour of rain. It was interesting to
    note that those from South Florida, and even Central Florida,
    thought it was really cold. Those from Minnesota or Virginia
    thought it was fine.

    We had a lot of very positive comments. Most vendors in the
    swap building reported record sales, with most selling all
    they brought, or very close to it. One person said they had
    brought 15 "major radios" to sell, and had sold 13 of them
    by Friday afternoon. Some even went home and got more
    things to sell! This was true if they were selling ham gear.
    The people reporting average sales were the computer
    vendors, or those selling jewelry. Is it possible that
    HamCation is going back a "real hamfest" selling ham

    Thanks to all who attended. See you there next year.

    Bad weather up north

    Wish I could have made it but the bad weather here in Baltimore put a stop to that. I heard that Flex Radio was going to show off their new Flex 1500 QRP radio. I have one on order but won't get here until perhaps March.
