@KB6NU: I hear you. On the other hand, it really doesn't take much time to get the license, and you never know when you'll want to do something that requires one.

But as soon as I get my license, you'll be telling me that I really shoudl learn Morse Code... when will it all end? LOL

@kfield: Sounds like you could have used a forklift to carry away everything you saw that you wanted to buy!


My chum Rick Curl had a backpack, but he had to make multiple trips back to his car to stash everything he was buying. I did see one guy walking aroudn with a big suitcase on wheels -- that was a good idea :-)

@kfield: I wonder if they had Nixie tubes for sale?

I didn't see any, but I wasn't thinking ... I should have asked that tube guy -- I'll make a point of looking for them next year...

@KB6NU: Don't just support the hamfest. Get a ham radio license, too...

One of my friends said the same thing ... I'm thinking about it -- but so much to do and so little time to do it all...

Max, you must have been like a kid in a candy store. Backpack? Sounds like you could have used a forklift to carry away everything you saw that you wanted to buy!

Don't just support the hamfest. Get a ham radio license, too (if you don't already have one). Getting a Technician Class license--the license class for newcomers--is really pretty simple. And, you can download my study guide for free by going to http://www.kb6nu.com/tech-manual.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me.

73, Dan KB6NU
