ARRL Arizona State Convention and ARCA Hamfest 2008

The 2008 ARCA Hamfest and ARRL Arizona State Convention was held in Williams, AZ on July 18-19.

My son Brad joined me, he passed his test just a few days earlier but unfortunately did not yet have his call sign.

We set up an exhibit booth for 10-10 International.  Many hams stopped by the booth and signed our log, and we handed out about 100 copies of the latest issue of the 10-10 News.  We also received some scholarship donations, and took renewals.  The highlight of the booth was that we set up a couple of 10 meter stations and helped two hams (KE7LHY and KE7IDC, the wife and son of our own AZ Section Manager) obtain the necessary 10 contacts to allow them to apply for a new 10-10 number!

I also gave a presentation on Saturday afternoon titled "Ten Meters is Alive & Well", which was a slightly modified and expanded version of my talk that I gave earlier this year at Dayton.
