The season is kicking off gang, heck, maybe we should have a whole section just for listing hamfests, rallys and Field Day plans and activities. Here\'s our first local one coming up for the year......

Anyone planning a trip to Charlotte this year? I am trying to gather a few car-poolers from my area. :)

Wish there were hamfest close to my local. If there are, I have not heard of any.
Let them say, I lived in the time of Hector, tamer of horses.

I went to the Charlotte Hamfest.  I went the last day and lots of folks still wanted more than what their stuff was worth.  I got one reasonable deal.  I got a military fiberglass portable mast kit with a bag and base and stakes.  I have it up now.  It has my 6 meter H double bay on it.  Made a contact on it yesterday.  Not far but it worked.  The Shelby Hamfest is the best I have been too.  I want to go there again this year.  Its supposed to be the biggest in the Southeast.  It was huge.  It took up the whole fairgrounds.  They had everything.
