    Are there any QRP vendors making the trip to Hamvention this year? I would love to pick up some parts and maybe a kit or two.

    Question regarding Four Days in May: I visited the FDIM website and it looked like everything is happening on Wednesday through Friday (which is only three days in May). Naturally, I have a business meeting I can't get out of on Thursday night and Friday morning, so can't attend. :(
    Is there anything else FDIM related occurring on Saturday when I can attend?

    Unfortunately, not much QRP action actually AT the hamvention, Brady. The closest thing I saw on the forums schedule was the SOTA group on Saturday. Their schedule:

    Just in case anyone has not seen the discussions on the SOTA Reflector, here are planned SOTA activities (all on Saturday, May 18):

    1. Saturday 9:15am - 10:15am - Forum Room #5 - Summits On The Air Hamvention Forum

    2. Saturday 1:00pm - 1:45pm - Meetup between Buildings 2 and 3 (or just inside Bldg 2 if raining)

    3. Saturday 2:00pm - 3:00pm - Volta Building Ham Radio 2.0 Booth - SOTA Presentation by K9IR
    Hope to meet up with you there, Brady. I just moved back to Fairborn. We can compare MTR-3b notes!

    Sorry I missed you, Rick. Welcome back to the area. I bet we will work each other soon, given your proximity and we both do CW. 73!
