Dayton Xenia Hamvention 2022 – Jeff KE9V’s Final Report

A bit unusual for With Varying Frequency, we have words from a guest to share.  Jeff KE9V is a long time ham, podcaster, author and blogger.  We’ve corresponded for years.

Jeff KE9V made it to FDIM (Four Days in May – the QRP event) and Hamvention, and has agreed his observations could appear here.

I’ve minimized any edits, mostly adding Jeff’s call sign when it added clarity.

While doing a massive amount of creative work, Jeff KE9V rebuilds his web presence removing the old to make way for the new periodically.  Some of his ham radio fiction podcasts may be put up for a few days a year, but then maybe not.

Link to where his blog and other work usually appears https://ke9v.net/ and to his twitter feed when he is doing that https://twitter.com/ke9v

Presenting part of our dialogue, oldest to newest:

I’m here at the Four Days in May event and it looks like attendance is about 2/3 of usual.

Tomorrow at the fairgrounds should be interesting…

Quick Update (1) by Jeff KE9V

Big news (to me) is that Kenwood isn’t here this year. Oddly enough, TenTec has a booth!

I’m going to maintain my estimate on vendors at 2/3rds of normal. Not empty but not pressed for space anywhere. Lots of open places in flea market.

Everything kinda looks just like 2019 to me!

Jeff KE9V issues the full re-release of the Ham Radio Adventure “Cornbread Road”

Today Jeff Davis KE9V released the remaining episodes of Cornbread Road.

Back in 2010 Jeff KE9V posted this teaser for the series:

Deep in the Heartland a small group of ham radio enthusiasts enjoy an idyllic existence of wide open spaces, no antenna restrictions, low-noise levels, simple living, and good fellowship. But things aren’t exactly as they seem. Unexplained lights in the night sky, radio signals masked from the ether, strange late night visitors to this small farming community…

I listened to Cornbread Road when Jeff rolled it out https://k9zw.wordpress.com/2010/06/21/cornbread-road-jeff-ke9vs-work-a-different-kind-of-ham-radio-podcast/ , and wrote  https://k9zw.wordpress.com/2011/09/05/cornbread-road-a-ke9v-audio-amateur-radio-novel-fully-on-line/ when the original 13 episodes were all put online.

I caught the re-release on Jeff KE9V’s Twitter feed – https://twitter.com/ke9v/
