Ham Com 2019! Hello fellow West Texas Hams!

Over this past weekend I had the pleasure of attending Ham-Com at Plano. This Hamfest has really matured since its move back to Plano from Irving.

Our major radio vendors were in attendance and we visited Icom, Yaesu, Kenwood and Elecraft. Elecraft had their new E4 radio there for all to see and droll over.
