    Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to
    beat you to death with it because it is empty.

    The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.

      Morganton, NC (Catawba Valley) Hamfest April 18th 2009

      Pretty good little hamfest that literally was in my backyard when I used to live in Burke County :)

      Think R&L is the ONLY new equipment dealer there... so no dealer cut throating going on for the best prices :( Still not bad prices...

                Hey Folks,

                I found a HAMfest that is going to be held in Western NC, near Waynesville, NC and Lake Junaluska.

                This location is approx 20 to 30 minutes West of Asheville, NC just off of I-40.

                Saturday, July 25th, 2009 at the Haywood County Fairgrounds.

                Here's a link...

                            thanks man, I was unable to go to the one in salisbury this past saturday. I am still trying to get my ticket so I can get on the net. I already have a rig to listen with, I am proud of it, it is a Radio Shack HTX-252 2m/440. I printed the handbook for it off the internet and power it off of a 12-volt jump box with an inline fuse. I hope to make a manpack for it so I can pack it with my bug out bag when it it is not in use mobile.
