Thanks for sharing the photos, Steve. Looks like everyone is having a great time, and staying warm inside.  I seriously considered coming this year, but it seems FrostFest always falls on the same weekend as the AM Rally.  I have accomodations available in Virginia, but since there are no antennas there,  I stayed in Georgia.

You missed a good one, Rick - was wondering if we'd see you there.

TNX for posting those shots, Steve - a good hint but hardly scratches the surface. You could've spent the whole 'fest taking photos and still not gotten it all. It was a great event aside from the horse feed, jewelry, plants, and other non-radio junk tables. Really good turn out and a LOT of good radio stuff to be had CHEAP. For example, how about a Hallicrafters R-12 table speaker (the one with the big wooden H on front) in decent shape for $25? Or a SX-115 complete & unmodified but dirty & cruddy from being in a basement, for $100? A nice, early 20s Westinghouse RA-DA pair for $150? The Hammarlund matching speaker for the HQ-129X in good condition for $15? The list is looooooooong.

Then there were all those complete radios on the GMS table marked....$5 each?? SX-25, Sky Buddy, Super Pro w/PS, National, RCA, on and on. Yessiree - a lot of good stuff cheap.

Not looking for anything (as usual), I still managed to score a handful of goodies including an ancient Raytheon tube tester & chart for $5 and a Radiola IIIA panel & chassis complete w/transformers for $5, both from the GMS pile. Some much-needed long clip leads 2 bundles/$5, a Command set/ARC-5 MC-211-A tuning spline 90 degree adapter for 50 cents along with a knob for my Johnson KW Matchbox and a couple others for 50 cents each.

A few of us got together Friday night at a BBQ spot Joe/GMS suggested for some great ribs, beer, apple crisp, and more. Along with Joe and Martha were WX1O, W3JN, K4HX and myself. It was a good feed.

Likewise the lunch we enjoyed after the fest Saturday courtesy of GMS Radio at Dot's. Food & conversation were excellent, it was 3PM before we knew it.

Got to meet Bill/KC4QAA and was finally able to deliver some long-overdue parts to Chris from Western VA (whose new call sign escapes me). Also saw Nick/K4NYW and JP/K4OZY along with many others.

A fantastic way to shake off the cabin fever made worse by colder-than-normal temps this winter. Enjoyed seeing everyone and getting a chance to catch up. TNX to 'JN to transport and the Joe/GMS for lunch. And a special thank you to Martha for anchoring the table for the entire crew as we wandered around or just yammered away.

Very nice 'fest, and so nice to put faces with callsigns.  Lots of good buys at reasonable prices, but I had to keep my wallet closed as I'm presently packing up to move from Southern Maryland back to the family farm in Kansas at end of March.  Cheers, bill

Martha and I had a great time at the Fester.  It was good to hang out with a lot of great friends.  Steve, thanks very much for all the pictures and glad we could help out with the table duties.  Martha had a great time as well.   With us leaving around 8AM this morning, we got back home around 12:30PM.  It was also great meeting some folks that I have not had the pleasure of meeting before.

Ummm... is it my browser, but most of the pix are upside down?
At least the thumbnails are...

EDIT: Just the thumbnails... oddly.

Same thing has happened when I have posted photos on AMFone over the last year or two, same outcome - upside down thumbnails, but full sized images show right side up.  FWIW, I have always posted from one of our iMacs or an iPhone.

Great pix BTW!

  Sorry I could not make the show this year. I like to combine being in VA for my grand daughter's birthday with going to the fest. Timing was just off this year.
