Hamfest Experience

Good seeing everyone at the Hamfest this year! We were busy with VE testing, and there was plenty of tables setup. I picked up two TNCs to add to my packet radio stack. After getting them home and testing them, they work like new. I will be putting them to use soon! I also picked up a TenTec Century 21, nice little CW rig! I also got talked into buying a 2 meter repeater for $5, and it works!

Worked All States

Well, congratulation to me! Just finished WAS on Logbook of the World (last QSL was 7-30), and EQSL was early July. This was one of my goals being new to the hobby, and it has helped me learn alot, and even driven me to learn CW. So I have my sights set on DXCC now and maybe I can look at that for next years goal. If you are doing some state hunting check out K3UK’s SKED page, it really helped me out for the last few. Thanks for all the help!
