HamCom 2006: June 9-10, Plano TX

Post by Victor Xray » Mon Mar 20, 2006 1:36 pm

OK I'll go ahead and get this thread started.


Who's attending HamCom this year? Buying or selling? I will have 2 inside tables for both days. No, you can't sell your sh!t on my table, go put it on tvsjr's.


Should we do a Thursday or Friday night Texas Hamsexy dinner? Truckslug and I can coordinate if we choose a nearby restaurant.

I'll be there, but not until very late Friday night. Saturday night would work better for me.
And the sign says you got to have a membership card to get inside.

Hamcom's only Friday and Saturday this year, according to their site

I will probably be there Saturday.

I think I'm going to try to make an appearance Friday afternoon, and then all day Saturday. I vote for a Friday night supper - anyone know a good place?

I don't have anything to sell, so I just plan on buying as much useless crap as possible. I'll bring the hitch hauler just in case.

What are the official Texas Hamsexy tactical frequencies?

I'll be there.

For comms, let's use the Hamsexy standards:
146.495 67.0/IMBE (NAC 293)
446.495 67.0/IMBE (NAC 293)

If you want to play crypto, let's use Batlabs Green: 151.880 DPL143/IMBE, DES-OFB. PM me for the key.

I'll have them all up in scan in the 5000s.

For wide-coverage comms, let's use 442.400/110.9. Sorry, nothing IMBE repeated in the air quite yet. That may change one of these days.

Be aware, you will get harassed at least once be Ye Audle Phucks telling you that "THAT'S ENCRYPTED, IT'S ILLEAGL ZOMGWTFBBQ!!!!`1~1one". Have your best "eat shit and die" face ready.

I'm tied up Thursday night with an Evil Empire dinner. Friday night would work, as would Saturday... I hereby appoint VX in charge of dinner coordination. Second? All in favor? Good, motion passes. I believe good food, the ability to put up with our bullshit, and cute waitresses are the order of the day.

We may also have a visitor from the Batlabs Northeast Enforcement Team in town.

As I recall, tvsjr did take pictures at our last get-together. He's either too lazy to publish them or his sponsor hasn't taught him yet.
No, the camera was improperly configured. Bitch. :baby:

If I'm going to make dinner on Friday, later is better. Traffic out of downtown Dallas at 6:00ish is going to be :anus: , and there'll be less going on at the freakfest.

I'll also be on 462.575 (69.3) analog/IMBE all weekend.

Friday works for me cuz I'm back at the station on Saturday morning. I could attempt to take T174 to Hamcom on Saturday but I would have a hard time convincing anyone else to go.
BJ's Brewery works as well. I can weave my home from there! Only 5 minutes away.
VX can plan everything. If all goes well I'll act as though I helped. If not, I'll accept no responsibility whatsoever. :baby:

Probably not a good idea. You'd end up with a bunch of strange, sticky white splotches on it, and a massive hamfunk smell... convincing the guys to help you wash it afterward would be a real trick. I wouldn't mind taking the nickel tour, however...

Smart man... you'll probably end up taking option 2, especially since VX is doing the planning.

I may or may not come. I'm traveling for work, which means I can get them to pay, but a friend of mine is going to Egypt for the summer, and i'd like to hang with her over going down to Texas. But, I am thinking about it. I'll know more in a week or so.

Hmmmm. Hang with a female or go to hot, humid Texas where the ham will certainly be a stinkin? Er uh, tough choice. NOT!

I have my priorities :)

I'd like to come down sometime regardless, we'll see if that weekend ends up working out, and if travel keeps up beyond this week for work, i can't afford it unless that continues as well...

"arrange" an 8-10 hour layover....pick up rental car...leave bags checked for my connecting flight...

<insert beer and ham sexy t-shirt sales here>

depart Dallas enroute to atlanta NLT 8pm, pick up rental car (again) and drive to augusta for college.....


sound like a plan?

Hahahha sounds like a great plan Doug! We'll see you Friday. If you're flying out at 8pm, I'm going to assume you're a No for dinner, correct?

Heheh. hamsexy's crashing Hamcom this year!

No dinner for me....

Post by kd5wyu » Tue May 30, 2006 12:32 pm

I'm going to have to decline dinner on Friday this time around gang, sorry.

Only can take 1 day off from work and am going Saturday.

Would much rather make fun of Hamsexyness than deal with people too stupid to use their own computers much less admin servers, not to mention stupid Cpanel deliberately breaking systems, but that's life.

For once, don't have much of a shopping list. Some hamsexy magnetic signs for events and such, mike + speaker for my 900 Spectra, and maybe a VHF Maxtrac for a APRS/packet radio in the future new truck if I really get lucky and have the $ left.

Will be listening on BW1 on Saturday, though. Feel free to yell at me if you hear me or see me. I'll have my DCARA badge on as well.

*IF* i can get my flight changed to divert into DFW, *and* we can have dinner around 5-6, i can probably at least drop by and say hi, pound a beer and get back in the car....

how about "drinks @ 5pm" "dinner @ 6"


?


more tomorrow

can i get an approximate SHIRT COUNT WITH SIZES????

no way i am lugging 100 shirts with me, but 10-20 might be doable....
