I love going to Hamfests! I used to leave St Louis at 11pm with a crazy group of guys. We'd have breakfast just before getting there so we could be there when the gates opened. Anyone and everyone interested in ham radio or computers and electronics ought to try it at least once.

i have been to the Dayton Hamvention several times when it used to be at Hara Arena many years ago. Last time was probably early 2000. maybe some time i can go again.

on edit -

just looked at their website - tickets at the door $31 - too much - I guess I will not go again.

The two best times to be there are when it opens and as it shuts down and a lot of stuff that didn't sell ends up in the dumpsters! [emoticon]
