ARRL Southwest Division Convention 2007

Well I am here in Torrance California after a long day's drive for the 2007 convention. My son KR7YAN and my friend Larry W7LB also drove out with me, so even thought it was a long drive it was an enjoyable one.

We used Larry's Avmap GPS to direct us - high tech! Throughout the day I kept checking various HF bands but no contacts made, the propagation was very poor today.

We missed the first hour of seminars but made it in time to attend a talk on pic programming. After that we cruised the exhibit hall - it was nice to see a lot of vendors here. There are definitely a few toys calling out to me, perhaps tomorrow we'll be making some deals.
