I will be mobile, headed for Dayton from Upstate SC at about 4:00am Thursday morning, I hope. :)  I will be monitoring 60m Channel 4. Will also be on Channel 4 for the return trip Sunday. Stop by and give me a shout if you like. Is anyone else going to Dayton this year?

I was ALMOST allowed to go. My grandpa offered to take me and my mom didn\'t really mind but my dad came down and said no :(

I\'ll just have to hope I can go next year.

Not to worry Cal, there will be a lot of Daytons in your future I am sure, some of us have to hurry up and get to Mecca as we don\'t have nearly as many opportunities left. :)

I lost you right there.  What do ya mean?
Peace will not be found at a MidEast table. Peace began at a MidEast STABLE, but everyone seems to deny it.
We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.
Believing in  evolution is like expecting a tornado to go through a junkyard and create a Mercedes Benz on its way out!
If you don\'t stand behind our US troops, then please feel free to stand in front of them. Yea, that\'s what I thought..........

No offense meant. The Hamvention in Dayton is THE worldwide hamfest. My statement was only to akin it to it being perceived as a mandatory pilgrimage that all radio amateurs must make at one time in their life to avoid being cast into the fiery abyss. Remember, this is the Amateur Activities section, not the debate section. :icon_rolleyes:

*edit* - That combined with the fact that I am older than white dog poo meant that I had better hurry up and go.

Hey the once \'Shelby\' hamfest ( http://www.shelbyhamfest.org/ ) is always a great one Crazy...... it has since moved to Dallas, NC and is handy to the interstate. Some of you flatlanders should team up and head up for a fun Saturday! :)
