Hams in space The link is cool. Launch a weather balloon with some cool inexpensive radio stuff to 52,000 feet. A man just can't sit around. If he could sit around he might not find the need to do stuff like lofting electronics into space. I am off to Dayton this week. The hamvention is the Mecca for hams. They say you need to get there once in your life. I have never been. I think maybe 20,000 hams attend each year. It is a big deal. I have a short list of stuff that interests me. You never know what you may find. But, you can be sure you'll find a whole bunch of nerds interested in computers and radios. I have the camper on the truck.
