Military Vehicle Show 2017

Hope you were with us at the Military Vehicle Show at the Jay County Fairgrounds in Portland, Indiana on September 16, 2017. If you were, we saw you. Weather was perfect, radio conditions were perfect, and we had a nice little cookout thanks to Grillmaster Jeff. This is Francis conversing on a 40 Meter HF Net for a couple of minutes. Worth the watch. We were running portable with a 40m inverted V dipole antenna and it worked great!

Here are some of the hams that were out at the show. There were a few more not in the photo, as well. From L-R, Ron, PG, Dave W., and Francis. We also had folks not in the picture (and a few hidden); The Amazing Larry, Bobby, and of course, Grillmaster Jeff. Gil was taking the photo, so he couldn't be in there, plus a few others that dropped in during the event. We started breaking it down around 2 pm and had LOTS of people around. Thanks for all of your help!
