Me and my friend will probably make an appearance. We were there last year for a few and said hi to everyone. I didn't stay long because I really didn't know anyone and nobody really was talking to me. Now that I think of it, I still don't know anyone...why the hell am I going? LOL...

Yeah Happy Birthday Alex.... and Doug... next time if you want protocols when John and I are handing out business cards... you must specify it.

FOr those that don't understand.. John K4WTF and I were handing out Hamsexy.com business cards... I ran into a group that are Hams and were really into it peppering me with stupid questions.

also picked up a spectra phone handset kit for 5$ good deal!
got a box of almost 100 mtx 900 portables for 50$ then sold a guy 10 for 100 so i made my money back and still have 80+ left!!! and an extra 50$$

I thoroughly enjoyed the matching salt and pepper shakers, and the ham guard stickers all over the restroom. I also liked AB9JV's scrolling badge.

I feel special because I picked up an Astron power supply for the CDM series mobile for only $35- I waited for Saturday to buy it... I don't know why I didn't on Friday, so seeing as how it was still there Saturday morning, maybe it's not so special. My radio does, however, look really nice in it though, so what else can I say?

There was like a million people at the show and I confess that I don't stick out as hamsexy, but today I was wearing my brown Eastern Michigan Univeristy Shirt, and spent most of the time in the flea market with my XTS3000 and GP2000 radios.

I couldn't really pick up anything big cause of the plane deal, but I did pick up some really nice pre-made Andrew bulkhead jumpers
and the RF public safety mic switches for the XTS3000/5000 portables way below MSRP :lol: .

Thee FCC meeting was pretty interesting meeting Riley Hollingsworth personally as well as Nick and a few others at the tent. It was cool putting faces with names.

Have a safe trip home guys.

I made out pretty well this weekend. Sold some stuff that I wanted to get out and bought a few other things that are in the realm of "nice to have".

The best part of the whole thing was picking up a duplexer for a VHF repeater project PJ and I are working on for a really great price. So all in all it was a pretty successful weekend.

And to everyone that we ran into this weekend, it was a pleasure meeting you all, and we hope to see you guys next year.

Dayton was definately a blast this year. After the dinner last year, nothing less could have been expected!

What is amazing is that nobody has mentioned Amy yet. :o

Alex, PJ, Jaymz, Rick Rock and I had a blast on Saturday night as well... At least until the baby vs floor from 3ft incident. (NO! None of us caused it!)

I'll let someone else explain that one. I know the first thing I did when I got home was kiss my little boy. My heart nearly stopped on Saturday night.

PS: Alex joined the "I Donated to John's Beer Fund" club this weekend and as promised I used a portion of the beerfund to buy booze and dinner for the group above.

Yea, no kidding. So which one of you is reponsible for the trick-or-treat attorney? I heard alex was having relations with the bovine burlar.

We plead the 5th, however Alex was laughing so hard @ one point he had to leave the room rather quickly :roll:

Who would've thought 5 middle-aged men and one of them's father having so much fun @ a local restaurant? :o

I did about the same, and am happy I could meet some of you as well. I would have liked to have met more, and attended Mr. Cook's bash, but I couldn't locate it until 7PM and we figured no one would be around.

You should have come. Hell, Alex and crew didn't show up until about 6:45pm or so. Rick Rock and I thought we were going to be late but were actually the first people there with the Cook party.
