There is no Dallas Hamfest.

There is the Shelby Hamfest, which has a five year contract to be held in the town of Dallas.

The local fast food chains as well as the mom & pops say it's their biggest sales day of the year.
Hamsexy is like peeing your pants.
Everyone can see it but only you feel its true warmth.
But then you get old and pee in your pants while wizzing around in you hamabout.

Yep. Livermush capitol of the world.

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 did all my business in the first 45 minutes of setting up. I thought for sure the TT would go.

Met people from Boston, New York and places from the East in general. It was a well organized event and many people took advantage of the golf cart rental. There were tons of hybrid rigs for those fans of such, mostly the FT-101**. I didn't walk the park until later in the day though. If you wanted parts, there were parts, pieces parts, parts parts, semi parts and parts for parts. The most I've seen to date. I'm pretty sure everything of a seriously desirable nature was snatched up before 8:45 AM.

If you were seeking cigar boxes, I had ya covered!

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.

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:
