Pretty good turnout of vintage equipment and vintage hams.

The "southern mix" is always somewhat different than the "northeastern mix".

I see a few things that might have followed me home! Cheesy

Thanks for sharing the pics. Looks like lots of good stuff was on display and I see a bunch of things that I'm sure I would not have been able to resist.

Nick,
         Thanks for the "eye candy"! Wish I could have made it. Were the four horsemen in attendance? Hi!
Saw the Polaroid on your table and it brings back memories. I was stuck with the Kodak Colorburst; probably still kicking around here in a box somewhere after 40+ years. Never sent it back on the trade in; Kodak wanted to stick people with another lemon... the Disc camera. Geeesh!

Only three of the four were there, Phil. 'JN was overseas.

Was surprised not to see you there, almost in your backyard. Even brought a receiver for you, a WWII Navy RAK-8 with matching supply and cable. Some feller came by who liked it well enough to take home, which made me happy - didn't have to re-load it and haul it back up here!

Didn't seem like quite as much good stuff this year, though there was still a lot. Someone was even selling Horse Feed! A whole table, horse posters, samples, etc. That's gotta be a first. Only horse-related stuff I've ever encountered at a hamfest was the previously used/recycled version...

Thanks for the pics.

I founds a few parts and a pair of 304TL's for the homebrew rig. I was told the SX-28 sold for $100. I didn't lift the lid, but the outside looked decent.

I bought a red Gatorade from the food area and it dyed my lips bright red! I didn't know it until I got in the truck to leave and glanced in the rear view mirror. It probably looked like it was wearing lipstick! Grin Other than that it was a great time.

Yes, for the second year in a row I missed this hamfest... my employer had brighter ideas for my time.

Hope you guys had fun!  Nick's pics look like it was well-stocked with cool stuff.
