Dayton is always a multi-tasker’s sort of experience, with everyone’s experience different.
A huge plus for me is the chance to briefly catch up with cousins, which is a Dayton high light. Midnight lit-frisbees and time to just catch up on our lives . Very nice!
Winston spotted the Gordon West booth end of Friday and said he would upgrade. So now my son is KC9FVR/AG !! He made his first HF contact under Dale N6JSX’s supervision at the show special event station moments later! Well done!
Attended the Flex-Radio Dinner and came away very impressed with both their commitment to the PowerSDR poducts (1000, 1500, 3000 and 5000) as well as the new SmartSDR 6000 series. The company really seems to have the ball and is running with it!
More on the 6000 after I am home.
Now for the 470 mile drive home…… Easy drive and we’ll listen to podcasts for a good part Winston KC9FVR/AG has a book on digital HF I bought him.
More on my return.
