    Thanks for the notice, I never knew the museum existed. It's on my list for the next trip to Newport. I'll look for you on the air IF I don't try to talk the XYL into a road trip tomorrow.

    Tryon: We would love to have you come by! There is a $15 admission to the event but it is well worth it. We have a great collection of old radios (including working ham rigs) and a terrific display of operating steam engines. If it is not raining we will have antique cars too. If you want to operate a bit come in to the PJ Station building an offer to help.

    Hello! Thank you for informing us about this event. Just like Tryon, I did not know the museum existed. But now I know and that’s all that matters. Also, the fee seems reasonable, considering what you are offering. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it to the event: my job keeps me busy all the time. I would like to know whether the museum is open on other occasions as well. Speaking of events, let me recommend you a great company that provides audio visual equipment, so that next time your event will be even greater. Check out https://www.ontourevents.co.uk/awards-ceremonies-gala-dinners. I am sure you won’t be disappointed by their services.

    Great to hear the Steam Up is a go for 2021! Fond memories from visiting years ago. It's been a while and this year's date doesn't conflict with vacation plans - for a change - so see you in October!
