Re: SHELBY!

The quality was not there and wallets were tight. Of course there was the usual show offs dragging radios behind their off road golf cart. Just old farts having faun.

Re: Dallas 2011

My knowledge of HF rigs is nil, I didn't know the Corsair is a Ten-Tec product. I guess I should hook up some radios so my cat has a place to sleep :baby: Just throw a shoe box on the floor or for added lulz, place at the edge of desk. Just right so kitty gets comfortable but precarious enough that...

Re: Dallas 2011

Got one of the cat sitting on top of it right after I got it home and hooked up the MFJ-948 antenna tuner. It was something new-ish. It's old news to her now as she's sitting on the scooter project now.

Re: Dallas 2011

Sold everything except the Corsair ... despite how everyone agreed that it is a wonderful rig especially with all the filter included and the Kenwood speaker and the Heil GM-5. So, since the 901 antenna tuner was sold, I had to buy a new tuner before I left. That's cool. I'll keep it. I pretty much ...

Re: Shelby 2010 - Dallas Gaston NC

OK, I went but only drove by the hamfest. The plan was to get there early, look around, do a couple of hours of last minute studying and take the test. Well, wouldn't you know it? I went to bed at 12:30AM, laid in bed with my eyes closed until 4AM. Decided to drink a beer and try to at least get a l...

Re: Shelby 2010 - Dallas Gaston NC

I should also note that if I go, I will take the Extra exam however, most testing that I know of occurs between 8am and 10am. The SARC club is holding theirs at 2pm. I guess I could gloss over the book with the extra time but afternoon tests are not my forte.
Any suggestions?

I will be there.
Missed it last year but had fun upgrading the year before.

This one has potential to grow. They certainly have the room.
It's also a great place for railfans.

Re: Timonium Hamfest March 27 - 28

Yes, and not to mention how much she wanted to add to the bill just on the insurance policy that she wanted them to buy. The Star,Cleveland's local paper, touted her as a woman who left her mark wherever she goes. That was before the Hamfest debacle.

Re: Timonium Hamfest March 27 - 28

Damn, a two-day hamfest. I don't think we have those around these parts. In western NC, we have two of them within about 40 miles of each other. One in the middle of March (Charlotte) and another on Labor Day weekend (Shelby) for the last 50ish years. The Shelby hamfest actually has people show up ...

Re: Anyone going to Charlotte on the 13th?

The Charlotte hamfest was nice. The bouquet was strong of many medications, one of which, when ingested, produces the prolific odor of gluey, soapy, dog repellent and hair spray. The mobility chairs were abundant in number but not outdone by the presence of portable oxygen tanks. I believe there was...

Sorry you're not going to be there Tom. Supposed to be partly cloudy in the mid 80's this Friday and Saturday. Last year was a scorcher.
