I'll second that. I've never noticed Gerd posting a message on this BB, but congrats to Gerd on a nice job and congrats also to his assistant. AMSAT's volunteers are doing a nice job.
I'm still kicking myself on letting a 2.5 GHz Wavetek sweep/RF generator get away. I should have jumped. You would think I would learn after my many years at Dayton.
Probably my only gripes is the $4.00 to park on an open lot and $3:00 for a bottle of water but hey it's a good hamfest. OK, I'm tight, isn't that a part of being a ham. I got to turn the knobs on a Ten-Tec Jupiter, which I can't even get close to at Dayton..

Hi all,
Just got back from the Ft. Wayne, Ind. Hamfest and wanted to thank Gerd, WB8IFM, for his AMSAT forum. I also wanted to say thanks to Carl, K9LA, for his talk about amateur radio and amateur astronomy. That makes me wonder how many folks on this BB use their satellite gear for any sort of radio astronomy. I would think that if you're working any EME, the same setup may possibly be used for other ventures.
73, de Doug KA8QCU
