That’s right…Dayton Hamvention is about 4 weeks away; and after planning a trip then canceling due to lack of funds I was able to put a trip together. I will once again be attending the festivities this year.

I’m riding down with a friend from Chicago; so I actually have to fly a whole state west in order to get here; but there are reasons this was preferable to flying directly to Dayton or adjacent cities.

The turnout last year was quite large…much larger than I’m used to for a hamfest; then again none of those were Dayton Hamvention. I’m anxious to see if the numbers are even higher this year.
