    Dayton, right?

    I've never been to Dayton, but will someday. It sounds like the swap-meet there is something to behold.

    Yep, although technically, with recent city boundary re-drawing, it's not IN Daytton anymore. I forget which little burg it belongs to now, but it really doesn't matter.

    Luckily, I'm only a 3-hour drive away.

    The Hamvention is a different experience to say the least. If you are curious, you can go to the official website: www.hamvention.org

    Lotsa stuff to see and endless entertainment for all you people-watchers out there! Kinda like the SHOT show of Ham Radio.

    Hamvention was fun this year as normal... But I think the Numbers were way down (even from last year ) On saturday it rained and the inside wasn't so crouded.. Also a couple of rooms had lots of empty vender spots...

    I guess this internet thing is slowing down the hobby and with ebay, there is little reason to do the outdoor flea market...

    My group will be there if it's the last vender in the flea market... Because it's still fun!
