I went ahead and posted the pics on the front page. If anyone has a list of all the names/callsigns, either edit it yourself or let me know and I'll be happy to add it.

Actually, you can thank VX for that. I'm terrible with names.

Could you crop the pics a little so they don't bleed over into the other information on the right hand side?

Nice pics BTW.

I have a complete post with thumbnailed pics hosted on ImageVenue ready to go, but for some reason WordPress kept eating the HTML code. If any of you chumps feels like giving me a little help with that, I'd appreciate it.

Here's the raw text from the one I made. I don't know anything about posting thumbnails though.

"Hamcom 2008 has come and gone. The highlight of the event was, of course, the Hamsexy dinner at Bone Daddy's. The star of the show was totally unexpected and totally welcome by all. Thank goodness motorola_otaku remembered his camera.

Ahh yes, <em>Hamsexy</em> indeed.
<img src="http://www.scottbomb.com/hamcom1.jpg" alt="The Crew" />
The Hamsexy crew from Dallas, Houston, and Oklahoma. Seated counter-clockwise: Nathaniel, KE5OMF (blugu64), Josh, KD5QCZ (motorola_otaku), Scott, (N0XMZ), Curran, KD5UXO, Brent (kd5wyu), Leah (mam1081's g/f), Mark, AE5DN (mam1081), Rick, W5TUX (aka "the lurker"), Jonathan, K5VX (Victor Xray), Chris (sklnd). Good food, great service, good times!"

Thanks to Jerry KD5OM for his pictures of the event.

I thank Jerry also for his Moto mic purchase... Let's see if he appears here and advises how it worked on his Alinco project. :ham:

This guy definitely had the best stuff for sale and the best deals. I hope he comes back next year!

Haha, speaking of projects, did that one dude from Radioreference bug you anymore about getting that amplified speaker to work on his mystery Motorola? :baby:

You're doing what to him in that picture? :anus:
It's the end of our hobby as we know it and I feel fine.
