I survived the Dayton Hamvention. It started with a 7 1/2 hour drive from Oakville (near Toronto) to Dayton Ohio. Essentially the drive is pretty easy. Drive to the Sarnia border crossing, turn left on I-75 and proceed to Dayton.
After a traditional Wednesday night dinner at a Chinese all-you-can-eat buffet, we get ready for Thursday’s Contest University. CTU is K3LR’s brainchild and it is wonderful. If you’ve ever even considered contesting, this is the place to learn. Here’s a snap of the crowd that attended.
Saturday, which threatened rain but really didn’t, was a day to finalize purchases, (That’s VA3EC and VE3JI on the right) go to a few other forums and then back to the motel to get ready for the Contesting Dinner.
Sunday is travel day and we’re home by mid afternoon. To see all the photos from this year’s event go to www.peterwestphoto.ca and look under in the Hobbies gallery.
