If it's 1/10 as good as Hosstraders, it'll be HIHI Fine Business OM indeed.

Actually Danny, that's not us.... due to circumstances beyond our control we won't be having the W3F AM station this year.

We'll both be at the fester though, and hope to see you there tomorrow.

No, forgot my camera also.

When we were setting up Sat nite that frigging thing was sitting idling for a half hour or so... backing up, going forward - had to find the EXACT right spot I guess. I was expecting hams to start keeling over from CO poisoning... I stunk like diesel after that.

Quite a bit smaller than last year, still, I sold quite a bit of stuff.

Because it was indoors I gave it a 9.2/10 on the stink scale.

Didn't see you there OM. In fact nobody came by the old buzzard AM station admitting to be a hamsexy denizen - at least when I was at the station.

Had an AMer -WA1SSJ - come all the way from New Hamster for the event.

We're gonna have an AM station in operation again this year per tradition.

Stop by and have a beer - the bitter old buzzard quotient in the group is pretty low.
