Two Dayton tickets

Due to some last minute changes it looks like I probably won’t be going.

I’ve got two tickets for $20 ea which is $5 saving if u r going and plan to buy tickets at the door. Plus you won’t have to stand in line!

I’d like to sell both in one shot but will go 1 by 1 if that are only offers that come in. I live in Stow & work in Akron so can meet for exchange as needed within reason.

Please feel free to forward this to anyone else you think might be interested in this opportunity.

Email me back or call cell 330-351-1347. Leave msg and contact info if no answer.

Thanks & 73′s de Rich AF1K

W1AW/7 Recap

W1AW/7 Nevada RECAP

Quick Facts: 30,557 QSO’S, 2 trips to the ER, 3 car accidents, 2 dead amplifiers, 2 dead K3’s, 1 dead parakeet.

For those of you in the fray (which is growing day-by-day) trying to get all of the W1AW/P stations around the USA – you can't imagine what goes on at the other end of the microphone.
This report is really interesting and sheds light on the other side of the pileup. See the PDF file called W1AW_NV_STO.
Thanks goes out to Tom Tarormina, K5RC for providing this information.

Youth DX Adventure

Once again, I want to remind you, if you are able to contribute anything to the Youth DX Adventure program, sponsored by DARA, please give to me at next Monday's meeting so I can take it to Don at the Dayton Hamvention. as a PCARS donation.  If we can gather $100 or more, we will be listed on their web-site and on their QSL card – good publicity for PCARS!   You can learn more about the program at .   Dave Kalter and Don DuBon have both been to a PCARS meeting to talk about the program a couple years ago.  Definitely a worthwhile project!

Contact me directly if you have any questions.
