Hamfest in Timonium?

Several of us came up and manned a booth at the Timonium hamfest.  We 
are talking to a lot of folks about the Charleston receiver project and 
getting them signed up for AMRAD membership.

Meantime, I have gotten around to the tailgate areas and the Cow Palace 
to look around and to buy some key parts.  There is lots of stuff out 
there but the hamfest is not as large and plentiful as is once was.  It 
is still worth the trip from Northern Virginia.  The weather was nice 
today so lots of folks got out and came over even though they were not hams.

It has always been two different hamfests.  The one on Saturday is more 
focused on computers and high tech and runs at a pitched pace.  The one 
on Sunday is laid back and more focused on ham gear and stuff.

And of course, AMRAD members come to the booth and spend some time 
talking to each other and other people and getting renewals and new 
member ships.  We try to keep chairs available so you can rest your feet 
although the pace today kept the chairs busy and occupied.
