Now that's a lousy excuse. Heard of DART? If you like, I can pick your sorry ass up. You are in the metromess, right? I think I'll be headed to the 'fest in the morning some time. :baby:
Well it turns out I made it out there for an hour and a half in the AM. I still wouldn't have been able to make dinner; but next time hamsexy gets together in the DFW area I'll be sure to be there.

eeeew! :not worthy:

"Bromodrosis [Fetid or foul smelling perspiration, G. bromos, a stench, + hidrosis, perspiration], or body odor, is the unpleasant smell caused by the mixing of perspiration, body chemicals, and bacteria on the skin. Sweat is normally an odorless body secretion. Bacteria multiply on the skin and break down toxic secretions resulting in chemicals having a strong and disagreeable odor. This odor is often due to poor personal hygiene, but excessive perspiration or some other underlying diseases and/or infections can also be involved.

A body odor that is 'mousy' occurs with phenylketonuria, and accumulation of phenylalanine and its metabolites, which can produce brain damage resulting in severe mental retardation as a congential genetic deficiency.

A body odor with a 'sweaty feet' smell is known as isovaleric acidemia, a disorder of leucine metabolism characterized by the excessive production of isovaleric acid upon protein ingestion or during infectious episodes. A uriniferous (urine-like) odor is indicative of a festering fistula."

Well, I survived. Fun times shakin' hands with you guys and meeting new folks, and kudos to the guys who scored on the Decibel sexiness. I only walked out with a 2-bay VHF dipole array, a high-power flat duplexer, and *gasp* a UHF Visar.

So where's the pictures, guys? I know Scott got a few. :baby:
My pic of the dinner meet will be up tonight.
And the sign says you got to have a membership card to get inside.

Dinner was great - seeing everyone & bullshitting was more fun :ham: :baby:

Sure, DFW has its share of OF hams, but the good news from Craig's presentation and the D-Star forums is that change is not only coming, but it is being embraced. It's just a matter of how quickly ALL hams will adopt.....

I know Josh & Scott have some good pictures -- let's see 'em!

Too bad the VHF whip is in the way of "It is just me or is this place a festival of idiots?"
