Re: *witticism goes here* PLANO HAM-COM 2014

I for sure won't make the dinner but I'll hassle everyone inside the flea market if you stop by my table.

Oh and the NT repeater is back on the air. 443.325+ NAC 293 / PL 110.9 I'll be monitoring mixed mode (but don't expect me to reply in analog) :ham:

Re: *witticism goes here* PLANO HAM-COM 2014

In for Friday only, and might be a late arrival at that. Leaving town on Saturday. Got the usual table anyway.

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

No not digital yet on NT. In fact it may disappear altogether, we are losing the building.

During the 'fest, I'll be on Josh's repeater 444.7+100.0 but will leave the receive in mixmode for P25 simplex ops with NAC 293. If there's a double. I guess we'll see which emission type wins. :ham:

Sorry guys, won't be able to do dinner after all. Forgot that I have Dad duties both Fri and Sat night. That means I can't bail you out of jail either so keep your hands off the waitress.

The usual showing for me, inside table and dinner.

Thanks for chasing her down Josh. I needed to see that pair again today.


Last night I had nightmares about Mong's idea for a restaurant and what his wait staff would look like.


Mike's handle on Batlabs is Microwave Mike. He is astro-sexy too but I think he prefers the big black Johnsons.

I'm game for Twin Peaks, but it may be pretty crowded with stereotypical hams due to its proximity. I remember seeing a lot of antennas in the parking lot last year.

If they power on with a KEYFAIL error, that has to do with the encryption module not having a valid authentication key programmed in it.
