Why we go to forums

For those of you who haven’t been to the Dayton Hamvention it may come as surprise to learn that it’s not just a flea market (albeit the largest in the world).

On Fridays and Saturdays there are a series of workshops and meetings that take place inside one of the main buildings. We almost always sit in on a couple especially those that have to do with contesting or antennas and other challenging topics.

But there’s another reason we attend the workshops and that’s to take a load off our feet. Once you get 300 or so people in a room it gets hot pretty quick and the results are predictable.

Thanks to Mike, VA3MW, here’s the result with Jim, VE3JMY (I might have the call wrong) and Harry, VA3EC taking it all it 🙂 I was sleeping in my chair at the time just off camera. Trust me it wasn’t the quality of the speaker. It was the endurance of the listeners.
