Dayton Hamvention 2008 Follow-Up Report No. 14 – 160m Everynight Group Gathering

On Friday night of the Dayton Hamvention, foot weary both, W9EVT and I drove out to the KOA Campground for the tail-end of the 160m Everynight Net BBQ & Gathering.

A Friday Tradition with the members of this net, they have quite a spread put on on a pot-luck basis.

Lucky W9EVT had stocked up on Sodas, Cakes & Chips as our contribution to the event.

The weather was perfect and the group a great time, talking, comparing notes and putting faces to voices heard often during the year.

My work & community schedule makes my check-ins on the 160m net at best once a month, but the group was in no way less gracious given my random & occasional check-ins.

 At the Hara the group has noon Photo Shoots on certain days.  George W9EVT was able to make one of these while I was driving around doing the Boat Anchor pickup routine.  (Covered in Dayton Hamvention 2008 Follow-Up Report No. 15 – Buying Boatanchors which will post in a few days.)

I really liked the quietness of the KOA site after the noise of the Hara all day.  Sitting around a campfire watching the moon and stars while talking about matters radio was a great time to be quiet and listen for me.

    Nice report Steve. I haven’t been on TopBand in years — since we moved back into town and don’t really have room for an antenna for that band. I used to check in regularly with the 1.936 gang every Thursday night. The bulk of them are in or around Cincinnati — many are retired P&G employees so there was a lot of friends. Nice group and I sure enjoyed the “Gentleman’s Band” attitude on 160.
