Book Table at the Ham Radio Fest

HamFest2019

This was my second year to have a table at a local area Ham Radio “Hamfest.” As a ham radio operator, it’s a great excuse to see the electronics, antennas, and other radio equipment for sale. As an author, it’s a great opportunity to be out in my community, talking about and selling my books.

My favorite:

Ham Operator picks up DANGER IN THE CLOUDS: This book looks interesting. Does it have a ham radio operator in it?

We chat about the services ham radio operators provided during recent hurricanes.

Ham Operator reads back cover: Whoa! This is you! You’re the author! I’ve never met an actual author! If I buy the book, will you sign it?

Me: Certainly. <Squealing inside!>

Sales were good, and the conversations were fun. Looking forward to another year!

Pink Baby Alligator on Veterans Day

Pink Baby Alligator went to the Veterans Memorial Park to celebrate Veterans Day. There were bands, speeches, organizations with information for veterans, and food. The smell of the burgers on the large smoky grill filled the air.

She helped staff the Gainesville Amateur Radio Society. Do you see her pointing at the skydiver in the sky? But best of all – The American Flags waving in the breeze.

To all our veterans, we salute you. Thank you for your service.
