THANK YOU to those I met from this list today out at the Palm Springs HamFest!

Wonderful event ... well-attended ... not too hot for Palm Springs ... ARRL reps

If you are in the Southern California region, please make it a point to attend this
wonderful show next year - the second Saturday in March.
