It's already March.. no HamCom thread yet? (June 8-9)

Postby motorola_otaku » Tue Mar 13, 2012 12:48 am

Dinner plans and pictures will eventually go here, but in the meantime.. :baby:

I look forward to having a Radioreference mod (burner) and an exiled Radioreference troll (Mong) in the same room at the same time.

I didn't troll that often, scannerfreak was the one who blew a fuse about me when I got the ban hammer.



I shall plan on being there, hopefully I'll be working fulltime again by then :baby:

Was planning on going, but I ended up owing a bunch of taxes this year. Might still make it, we'll see. burner50 promised me that he'd throw one hell of a party for everyone at his house.

Oh, I forget there is an actual hamfest. I just think of it as a dinner :baby:

Yep, I'm in and have my usual table.

Oh and the NT repeater is back on the air. Could it be P25 before hamcom? We'll see.

Yeah, you have the rep of being a cheap date...

Seriously though, that's pretty much all I'd be excited about. I don't go to hamfests to buy stuff. The other expense would be fuel for the trip down. I figured it up, it would be $128.72 one-way, at current fuel prices. burner50 offered his floor for me for lodging, so that's a savings.

Got my vacation request back and I will be there Friday and Saturday.

Friday night dinner work for everyone again? That seemed to work better last year.

Been to San Antonio yet? It's almost as dirty as Houston.


And now it's looking like I might have a temp on-site repeater for real this year.. like, a 25W UHF Quantar. Will post back with frequencies and PL/NAC once it's a done deal.

SA is outside my district too...


OKC, Mcalester, Chickasha OK, down to Dallas, Ennis, and Hearne and over to Monahans / Pecos


I don't hold seniority in SA or Houston

I made sure I got both days off. I look forward to spending money foolishily at the swap meet. If anyone sees a 900 MHz HT, please let me know. I need Skywarn refresher too.

So are we using Jon's (NORTEL) repeater, besides the usual simplex freq?

:baby:


I have no issues with the usual location, It's sorta a tradition and my wife don't mine the scantily clad chicks serving food (since we aren't eating at Big Bone Mama's).


burner50
The last two years we have eaten at the one at 8856 Spring Valley Road Dallas, TX 75240 (Richardson, sorta connected to the Micro Center computer place on 75).


Seeing as I am working Thursday 5pm-6:30am and Friday midnight-6:30am (I was able to get off 5pm-midnight) I'll not likely be at the actual hamfest again this year.


I am loosing seven hours of OT, plus the cost of a babysitter to have dinner with you goobers so I expect good stories and many jokes :baby:

I won't be taking any time off specifically for you goobers, as it simply costs too much money, but I'll be there if I happen to be available and not sleeping.
