I have not had the opportunity to investigate new equipment or even think about the many Hamfest we have coming up over the next several months leading up to Dayton.
This year I am hoping to make the trip to the Dayton Hamfest. I have received e-mails from several asking me if I plan on attending. I guess the best answer is as long as I am feeling healthy enough to travel.
I did get me a new toy; I got me a new iPod. This time it is the classic, replacing my SanDisk.
iPod classic gives you 160GB of storage capacity, good for up to 40,000 songs, 200 hours of video, 25,000 photos, or any combination. And you get up to 36 hours of battery life, so you can keep on rocking for a long, long time.
I wanted to get the iPod Touch but really did not have the need for the money it cost. 200 dollars is easier to part with compared to 400+ dollars.
Other than that, I am behind the eight ball on my Stamp Collection and have to order some fly tying materials to keep me busy. I also plan on cleaning out some of my sports cards I have collected since I was a kid.
