HamCom 2015?

Postby motorola_otaku » Sun Apr 19, 2015 8:49 pm

So the move to Irving has kind of thrown a wrench into the works. Bone Daddy's is now clear across the world as is the NT repeater. I was considering bringing the Quantar back but with the parking situation in kind of a flux I don't know that I'd be able to park someplace with enough room for a proper antenna. And since RVs are verboten my friends who used to post up under the water tower aren't coming back.

So I guess I'm looking for suggestions for a new Friday meetup spot, or if enough people will even be there to do it. I know I could ask on the Facebook group but :baby: those guys.

I've been here for five years and I'm still not sure where Irving is :baby:

I know it's on the other side of Dallas, but have no idea if it's near 20, 635, or somewhere in the middle. I could look it up but that's like thinking.

I can hit the actual hamfest on Saturday.

As for a dinner meetup, I got a new in-house job (Mon-Fri) in Feb plus my old job on Sat night and a 3rd job on Sunday night. I already have enough earned PTO to take Friday off, not sure if it's wise to do so yet.

You guys post up some plans so I can figure out what I can do.


I just looked at the parking info, pretty fucked up for a regional hamfest to not plan for overnight RV parking.

The Shelby NC hamfest had RVs showing up a full week before the event :baby:

I am up for dinner as always.

I just learned of the change in locations tonight as I am no longer a member of any of the area clubs. :cheeseandwhine:

Oh shit you guys are still alive?? I was beginning to think this would be a wash.

I did end up cross-posting this to and they had nothing constructive to add (as expected) so at this point I'm going with the usual location at the usual time for dinner. I will be in town for both days arriving late Thursday night, and unfortunately the portable Quantar didn't happen.

I'll try an round up Craig. So it's Friday around 7PM on June 12th at the traditional watering hole?

Anyone heard from the others?

Unfortunately, I'm out.

My full time job is switching to a new schedule (Pittman) That week So I'll be working 6p-6a Friday Saturday and Sunday.

If we started next week, I would have been off.... fuckers.....

There is a chance I might actually make the hamfest early Saturday morning since I'll still be awake.

Driving to Plano on a Friday morning would be okay, not sure about Irving ....

It looks like my schedule change might be moved back to another time. I still work Friday but I'll see how easy it would be to take it off for the good of the traditional dinner.

Craig and Pam are in Utah on vacation so I guess no ribald debauchery from KV5E this year. Anyone heard from Jonathan?

Have not heard from Mr. VX. Don't know if he got a table, they went pretty quick.

I'm right across the street at the "preferred accommodations" so I'll see y'all in the morning. Will be monitoring the usual freqs (146.495, 151.88.) 7:00 PM at the usual location is the plan at this time.

No dinner for me, too much BS at work :cheeseandwhine:


Slight chance I'll make the hamfest, but driving to Irving and paying $15 to see lots of fat guys is going to be a hard sell to the logical side of my brain.

Talked to Jon, he's down for an "appearance" at dinner. I'll go ahead and put us down for 5.

Not much to be had honestly. Zero repeater stuff. Guess people didn't feel like lugging MSR and MSFs off the trailer inside. And really, $5 to park in the dirt? [/cheapham]
