I kinda thought about going back to Belton this year instead. Of course, I doubt many hamfests in our corner of the world will be pulling many attendees thanks to Ike. :ve4uo:

I'm headed up to Paris in the morning. You can find me in the tailgate area sporting the usual hamsexy apparel.


Anyone else going? Or already there?

Fun time! Much bigger turnout than last year. Not a lot of newer-model radios for sale but a fair selection of odds & ends. I sold $80 and spent $80 so I was happy. Too bad I missed out on Friday, supposedly a radio shop near Tyler came out with some commercial gear and sold everything he had.

Kudos to Richard for wrangling in $7000 in door prizes this year (even though I didn't win anything). The grand prizes were sweet - an 857D and 5x8' utility trailer.

I'm sure I'll be back again next year :ham:
