Shelby Hamfest 2007

We made the annual pilgrimage to the Shelby, NC hamfest. The flea market area looked like it was back to normal now that everyone is adjusted to fuel price realities. Attendance seemed down last year after the sharp spike in gasoline prices just before labor day.

I finally got a good look at the Yaesu FT-450. Its not much larger physically than an FT-100D and a bit smaller than the FT-897. Also on display was the new FT-950.

So many radios to choose from.

The hamfest was fun. I enjoyed the trip there and back with K4CZ, NT4Q and N4YDU. N4YDU had ‘no joy’ looking for a new slightly pre-owned radio toy. I picked up a few odds and ends from the flea market, but came up empty on 1/4 inch stereo inline jacks. Yesterdays ubiquitous parts are todays hen’s teeth. Go figure.

    Plan on attending the 2008 Shelby Hamfest. It has been moved to Biggerstaff Park, in Dallas, North Carolina, about 20 miles east of Shelby. This promises to be a positive move and the park is nice. I look forward to seeing you there, 73 de W4LBN
