I attended the 2008 Dayton Hamvention on Friday, May 16 to Sunday, May 18.  I also attended Contest University the day prior to the Hamvention.

As usual I had a wonderful time.  I worked at the 10-10 booth, presented a talk at the 10-10 forum, and cruised the halls in search of unique radio goodies.

Here's what makes Hamvention so unique!

I counted 59 antennas on this car, plus he had many more in the back seat.

The flea market was much smaller than in years past, but it was still crowded
