I have been planing to attend Radiofest 2008 in Monterey, CA and their web site showed that HRO was going to be there along with smaller vendors. Well today I see their Vendor list changed and HRO is no longer on it. I'm really bummed out, now there will not be a Ham radio store there but I see from the list I see that Cookie Lee jewelry, radio shack and Avanti Activewear will be there. So I guess I can drive 6 hours for some cheap jewelry, some underwear and get my questions answered by someone who has no clue. I'm now thinking about canceling my Hotel reservations and just mail ordering my new toys.
When I was stationed in Charleston, SC I went to some great Hamfests, there was so much to see buy and both vendors and flea markets were selling at the same time. Sense I have been on the west coast every Hamfest here are lame in comparison and they make the Flea market wait until Sunday, I really enjoy the flea Markets you can find some great treasures there.
Oh Well Guess I can always go camping
