Well… another Hamvention is in the books and it was the usual great time of fun and friendship. WR8S (Bill Shultz) and WV8TG (Tom Graf) and I enjoyed three fun-filled days scouring the Flea Market and also inside Hara Arena for all sorts of treasures and trinkets. Tom scored a pristine 1959 Hammerlund HQ-One Forty Five short-wave radio and several other vintage radios to restore. (The Hammerlund was the first serious short-wave radio Tom bought and it eventually led him on the journey to get his Amateur Extra Class license!) Bill and I invested in a couple Yaesu FTM100-DR System Fusion digital mobile radios so that we can explore the Monongalia Wireless Association’s new System Fusion repeaters here in the Morgantown, West Virginia area. Below is a video recap of our annual trek to the Dayton Hamvention. If you have never attended a Dayton Hamvention… GET THERE! Enjoy!
