It is hard to believe that it has almost been a month already, and I haven’t gotten these pics on-line… Rather than delay any further by trying to editorialize about the hamfest – I’ll just re-state that it was great. So, on with the pictures. I have more of course, but these are the significant ones.
Jerry here – KG4FNC was pretty proud of his custom metallic-faced HT,
and it was drawing some attention … certainly worthy of a spot on this website.
For the last two years the AMSAT booth has been located right next to Gem Magic, and they are some good neighbors. They have some great stuff as well, and it continues to be a joy to visit with them when they get a free minute. You won’t see it in their display, but K4EWG enjoys building his own HF equipment from scratch. Both Pete and Tana are licensed Civil Engineers from Georgia. We’ll be lookin for yall next year.!.
(My daughter collects those puppy-dog necklaces.)
Of course Greg and Blanche came by the AMSAT booth . . .
And speaking of AMSAT, John – N5AYD joined us this year to help answer visitor questions, and to share the enthusiasm.
The dual-frequency microwave antenna feed caught Greg’s eye too. This is a pretty specialized hunk of metal – we’ll have to get more detail from Tim….
A few more detail shots of this wonder of precision mechanical design . . . .
We also had a visitor from the North Carolina AMSAT group, Bob – KB5YZG.
Of course, “The Scopeman” was there Bob – KD4JRT with all things Tektronic. Ernesto – WP4Z was kind enough to let me interrupt his transaction for a photo.
And finally, we see Larry – NS4Q and Ben – K4QF discussing the upcoming SE VHF Society Convention (which will be hosted here in Huntsville in 2011 .!!. Keep your schedule free for April 29 & 30, and check their website for more information as the program details become available.
OK, that’s my on-line pics from this year’s hamfest in Huntsville. Send me a note, or drop a comment here if you’d like a higher-rez copy of any of these. I guess next I have pics from the Shelby Hamfest that are over-due…
Someday maybe I’ll get caught up. /;^)
