I'll be there or or the other day. If I end up at a real job, I'll be there both days.

It did suck last year, hopefulyl this year we can make it more fun.

We're gonna have an AM station in operation again this year per tradition.

Stop by and have a beer - the bitter old buzzard quotient in the group is pretty low.

We'll be out there Fri nite setting up, I expect... KB3AHE is bringing his Big Black Johnson Invader 2000 ether burner, I'm coughing up a Hallicrafters SX-88 for the signal sniffer, so it's Back to the Sixties at FartFest!

The callsign for the AM station will be W3F and we'll be haunting 3880 +/- and perhaps 40 meters 7295 +/- during the day. Yeah, yeah, we'll send you a fricking QSL card if you work us.

Hope to see you mugs there!

Didn't see you there OM. In fact nobody came by the old buzzard AM station admitting to be a hamsexy denizen - at least when I was at the station.

Had an AMer -WA1SSJ - come all the way from New Hamster for the event.
