Our annual outing to the SEAPAC convention in Seaside Oregon is over for this year. Once again a fun time was had by all with something like a dozen and a half of the Wetnet gang there as well as countless other acquaitences there was no lack of activity.
This year Peter (wa7fus) provided a portable 224.22 repeater and ran it from his hotel room. It made staying in contact with everyone extremely easy and avoided the hastle of finding a clear simplex frequency for our use.
I didn't win anything but I did pick up some clamp-on ferrite filters to see if I can kill the two meter interference in my car and maybe make an attempt at eliminating the 144.39Mhz interference from my Clear modem at home. I'm not holding my breath but it would be nice not to have to relocate the APRS antenna.
Richard (n7rig) was the real winner this weekend, getting two small prizes ($10 at the booth of the guy with all the soldering equip. and a free pizza at a local place).
But the biggie was when he came away with a Yaesu VX-3R handheld at the main drawing.

Man that Eye-Fi SD card for my camera is great. :-)
