heard about this on the 145 yesterday, anyone thinking of going? Here is the flier http://www.ncarc.net/files/2009%20Swapmeet.pdf

I'd like to check it out, but Ft. Collins is about 90 miles away... not sure I can make it. Perhaps a north sider could keep an eye out for a good used mag mount/antenna package for my HT? :D

I may go just to see if I can win something. That IC-7000 would look really sweet next to my FT-857D in the 80!

Tim, if you're bored we could get together to go up in the 80. I'll put in the 3rd row seats and strap Gavin and Emilee in the back and we'll road-trip it! I got nuthin to do since Andrea will be working Stock Show ALL THE TIME.

I'm going to go if I don't go skiing. It is down the street and around the corner for me. I'm trying to get Tyler to take the tech test there. You think he needs a father-in-law looking over his shoulder?

Yes. Yes, he does.

My wife and I are taking a bee keeping class in FC this weekend. I'll see about getting to the Hamfest after the class. Thanks for posting this up Tim:thumb:

That's cool, I missed the summer one. I'm interested in going from the south side.

I can't go but if there is a deal for a unit with the detachable face please let me know. I am looking for one of those remote mount units and would need everything. Anybody that is going up if you can keep and eye out and give me a call maybe, I would pay you back ASAP.

PS If somebody could just win the 7800 for me that would be great too;)

Congratulations Tyler!:thumb:

I went as well and took the whole family. My kids thought it was very funny when a vendor showed them the inside of an old transceiver. I explained to them what tubes were an how I used to disassemble my parents TV, take out the tubes, test them at the drug store, and replace the bad ones.:lmao:

They also had a very cool signal analyzer (a fancy oscilloscope). You could key up your HT to test and see what freq you were transmitting on. The kids (and the wife) thought this was pretty cool.

I did not stick around for the grand prize. As a result I am sure I won something in the raffle since you had to be present to actually win it.:rolleyes:
