- First I would like to congratulate everyone's efforts at Dayton this
coming week. Matt (kc8bew) told me about the display and it sounds like
a great idea to promote Scouting and radio. I will be parked at the
Comet Antenna display, booths 56, 57 and 58 in the main arena. Just
look for the smart car on display. I plan on being at Dayton most of
the time from Wednesday thru Sunday. Please stop by and say hello. I am
looking forward to seeing the Scout Radio display and other Scouters
from around the country. If you have anything I can put on my bumper to
promote Scout Radio, please get me one and I will see that it gets on
my car. 73s
