Yesterday, I tried to explain to someone why Dayton was so special to ham radio operators. After I got through the story, she said, “OK, but Dayton? Really?”
Yes, Jennie. Really.
There’s something special about this event. Why else would I get up at 4 am, get into my car at 4:30, and drive 3 hours to attend talks on QRP contesting, QRSS, and homemade radios? It’s already been a lot of fun, and I’ve only been here for about four hours.
The highlight of the morning was the stuffed pig that Perry, WA8THK, brought to the seminar. Now, there’s a pig who knows how to enjoy Dayton!
I’ll be blogging throughout the event. So stay tuned.
