“THANK YOU” to all our Dealers, Flea Marketeers, Guest, and Volunteers who made this possible. Without you, it would not have been possible.
A special THANKS to Kay Craigie – N3KN, President of ARRL, for presenting the ARRL Forum along with Dennis – W4PWF (Roanoke Division Director), Jim – N2ZZ (Roanoke Division Vice Director), Karl – W4CHX (New NC Section Manager) and the rest of the ARRL staff.
Also thanks to our other great Forum presenters, Lou – N2TU (K9W DXpedition), Bob – K4UEE (FT5ZM DXpedition) and Bill – W4ZV (first American Novice DXCC).
Some highlights other than the Dealers and Flea Market area were:
