NEAR-fest

Post by n1vev » Tue May 08, 2007 3:54 am

Hey you got a photo of my car!!!!!!!
Yep I'm the one and only NEAR-Fest Radio 88.1 man....
There was only one antenna or working antenna on that peice of wood on the trunk of my car...There was a wire dipole antenna beeing supported on that whip antenna...I got a lot of complements on my broadcasts and I symocasted the AM 650 PA system broadcast of the prize drawing at the end of the fest... Overall the 1st NEAR-Fest was sugsessfull...I sold 7 out of nine radios I had with me...I sold them all on Friday and the last 2 I wasn't worried about selling this time around...The HT90 HT I use as one of my business band radios and the Icom IC 280 I want to add a pl tone board in it....I hope to have a van (Probably a rental van) for the fall NEAR-Fest so I can bring 2 tables and more gear to sell...I will also have the NEAR-Fest Radio 88.1 Station with me with I hope a real antenna to get the signal out better...maybe a Jpole. Thats it from here this morning..73 de N1VEV
