    Default 76 DAYS 14 HOURS 35 MINUTES UNTIL DAYTON HAMVENTION

    I was just on the Dayton Hamvention website and had to make a post.




    The snow should be gone and it should be warm.

    Of course the snow will be gone. It's always 80-95F (25-35C) there. Bring sunscreen or you're getting burned. That's a fact.

    Dayton survivor: 2005, 2006, 2010, 2011, 2012 and this year. I don't go for the stench, the chicks (there are none) or the food. I go for the friends and rare finds.

    Dayton since '87.

    Good times with good friends.

    More of a social event these days.

    I don't know what everyone prefers. We generally run UHF P25, but I am thinking about doing TRBO this year.

    It's been a few years since I've been. I want to try to make it this year, if only to catch up with some old friends. The only reason I set up shop is because there's always a chance I'll need bail money when I get together with certain people.

    I just don't give that much of a **** about you people to justify flying to Ohio for a sausage fest/circle jerk.

    But seriously I hope you kids have a good time... Someone bring me back something rare? Please?

    You know, you're probably right now that I think about it... Especially if you were there, Pezzy.

    You know, I think I still have your phone number. I should call you and discuss this further.

    I sold most of my P25 gear since there is nobody to talk to around here but maybe my dog. I'll have Uhf DMR (Hytera)... not that anyone cares.

    You'd be surprised how wrong you are, old friend.

    Nearly all of the mod/admin group has moved on from P25 and we're now using DMR. We're in the process of building-out the new DMR system with networked repeaters. P25 just didn't cut it, due to various reasons (mostly all associated with ease-of-networking).

    We'll all be on DMR simplex this year. Bring your Hytera. Looking forward to chatting with you. UHF.

    Always wanted to go but living on a island in the middle of no where is costly to go anywhere, looking on United website, SYD to SFO...SFO to DEN...DEN to DAY on the return leg, DAY to ORD...ORD to SFO...SFO to SYD....for only $1767.14 AUD.

    But maybe next year, still making my LED call sign tag....

    Also may bring Michelle with me....cause she is so bouncy.

    Just a thought here, any interest in getting together for some beers while everyone is in town? Plenty of places on Miller Lane to meet at...
