Hamvention 2016

Did a long day at Dayton Hamvention yesterday...

where we had a mix of rain and overcast, exactly as on the Saturday of last year.

Once again, we Brits were represented by the RSGB stand in its familiar location...

Walking around the flea market I was delighted to bump into Kristen, kb3oqv

Kristen is known as Antenna Hair Girl (she's not just standing in front of a tower - it is worked into her hair) and, what's more, it was working as an antenna for the HT she's holding up in the photo!

Best of all, Kristen is a fellow member of Portage County Amateur Radio Service - she came to my talk a few weeks back. Her folks farm Buffalo and (as I can confirm personally) those animals sure taste fine!

Make sure you visit the Dayton Hamvention at least once in your Amateur radio career.
