Quite a bit smaller than last year, still, I sold quite a bit of stuff.

Because it was indoors I gave it a 9.2/10 on the stink scale.

Hadn't been to that one since 03 but liked it when I went on Sunday. I'm not a big hamfest goer but the ones that I've been to in the past year or so have been disappointing to say the least.

Got a cheapo function generator that needed a new power cord for $5 and found a cord on the ground on the way out.

No, forgot my camera also.

When we were setting up Sat nite that frigging thing was sitting idling for a half hour or so... backing up, going forward - had to find the EXACT right spot I guess. I was expecting hams to start keeling over from CO poisoning... I stunk like diesel after that.
