Hamfest Day 1

Saw a lot of good friends and tons of old junk at Hamfest this afternoon.

Leave a reply if you saw or brought something that you thought was particularly interesting.

So far, I picked up a Comet SMA24 whip antenna for HTs. Hoping to pick up the repeater better on my walks. Pack tomorrow for more trash and treasures.

Poster for Green Country Hamfest

Guys,

Tiffany made us a tri-fold poster to use at the Hamfest. Has the club name, meetings, nets, other pertinent information, etc. Should complement the banner. We can put it next, above, whatever.

If you have some photos of recent (or not) BAARC activities, please bring them and a bit of scotch tape. If we have too many photos, we can set them along the edge of the table.

I was going to print up some flyers to give away, but I'm running out of steam for this evening. If someone wants to run some off, that would be a great way to keep things fresh in one's memory after the hustle and bustle of Hamfest is gone.

See everyone tomorrow afternoon / evening, Saturday, etc.

Thanks, Scott
