Re: Ham-Com 2018: BACK IN PLANO

Good to get to see Jonathan and Mongo (who actually bought more crap than I did) again. Friday and Saturday were solid showings, but a lot of people didn't go back on Sunday (myself included... I spent the day across town with the weeaboos.) Highlights of the weekend for me included photobombing the...

Re: Ham-Com 2018: BACK IN PLANO

Will you or Rick be at the fest at all?

Also I'll be hanging out on 441.100 DMR for the weekend.

Re: Ham-Com 2018: BACK IN PLANO

I would prefer Friday night since Friday at the 'fest is only a half-day and I'm less likely to be a sweaty tired wreck, and since it looks like it's just us, Friday night it is! 7:00 or 8:00 is fine, either one works for me. The schedule is weird this year... 4 hours on Friday then full days on Sat...

Re: HamCom 2016 Irving TX

Missed seeing you at the 'fest Craig. Give the Lurker my greetings too next time y'all talk to him. What a logistical clusterfuck. At one point a HamCom staffer came up to me in the mud pit... er, tailgate lot and asked me who was assigning spots because she herself did not know. And by the time I l...

Stuff... happened, and I will only be able to make the 'fest on Saturday. Probably won't be in town in time for dinner on Friday. I'd love y'all forever if we could move it to Saturday night but I understand if peoples' schedules are set.

Still gonna have a tailgate spot tho. :mjban:

Re: HamCom 2016 Irving TX

...and in a surprise turn of events I will have a spot at the outdoor tailgate. Come buy the rest of my old repeater crap!

I'm guessing turnout is going to be a little light this year, seeing as how several of the hotels still have rooms and there are still table spaces available.

Re: HamCom 2016 Irving TX

Good to see they finally caved in to the rabble and allowed tailgating again. HamCom without the parking lot might as well have been Belton (where all the tailgaters ended up going anyway.) And speaking of the other Texas 'fest, I will be attending that one as well and will have a flea market space....

Talked to Jon, he's down for an "appearance" at dinner. I'll go ahead and put us down for 5.

Not much to be had honestly. Zero repeater stuff. Guess people didn't feel like lugging MSR and MSFs off the trailer inside. And really, $5 to park in the dirt? [/cheapham]

Re: HamCom 2015?

Have not heard from Mr. VX. Don't know if he got a table, they went pretty quick.

I'm right across the street at the "preferred accommodations" so I'll see y'all in the morning. Will be monitoring the usual freqs (146.495, 151.88.) 7:00 PM at the usual location is the plan at this time.

HamCom 2015?

So the move to Irving has kind of thrown a wrench into the works. Bone Daddy's is now clear across the world as is the NT repeater. I was considering bringing the Quantar back but with the parking situation in kind of a flux I don't know that I'd be able to park someplace with enough room for a prop...

While I can't speak to this specific Kirisun model, their others are essentially welfare Baofengs. Or to put it another way, they'd be right at home in Harbor Freight. Yaesu had one of their "C$FM FDMA" radios on display at HamCom. There was no accompanying documentation, ad slicks, or any...

I will be on the above-mentioned portable repeater (444.7 pl 100.0) at the 'fest itself. As for talk-in for Friday dinner, I think we all know where it is by now. But I guess I could be persuaded to scan a few extra channels. My boss and our other partner in crime likely won't be P25-capable so :bab...

So in a crazy and unexpected turn of events I think my new boss might make an appearance at dinner on Friday. :anus:

Still trying to get a consensus on the repeater freq, but it could still fall on either 444.7 or 444.75.

Re: Once again I have dropped the ball: PLANO HAMCOM 06/07-0

My coworkers who have access to myriad APXes and a smattering of the Kenwood LMR catalog all have Baofengs, and they all love them. I don't get it. They don't even do CTCSS/DCS search.

Also FYI, the aforementioned porta-peter will be AllStar linked back to H-town.
