A big thank you to all the club members who volunteered to help make this a very successful event. We had people in attendance from all over northwest ohio, southweast michigan, and northeast indiana. As an experiment in a first time winter hamfest, we think we attracted a nice variety of vendors and equipment for sale. Looks like we may try this again next December on the 5th, so mark your calendars now!
The logs have been tallied and the scores are in. Of all 89 participants they received log files for, we finished in 25th place with a score of 5,096, which sound great, but actually finished 11th out 15 participants in the Multi-Operator, Multi-Radio, High Power in Park (MMH) category. So there is some room for improvement. I have no complaints from the contest. We had great weather and the cookout was a lot of fun. We keep getting a little better every year, and I imagine next year will be no different. Some other interesting stats from the contest:
