How could I turn down an invite to the 6 meter BBQ (09/29/17 – 09/30/17) from the legend, Mr. Tim Duffy himself!? I touched base with Tim a few weeks ago regarding the recent Hustler 6BTV installation I did in the backyard, using some awesome DX engineering products in the process. Tim informed me of this event of which I had yet to discover… the 6 Meter BBQ! This event is primarily sponsored by DXE & FlexRadio Systems. Some of the top competitors in the ham radio world, so I didn’t want to miss this event!

I’m most eager to meet everyone, and especially listen to the presentations that are scheduled for Saturday. Rob Sherwood will be there, among many others. This will be a huge learning experience for me, as my experience with 6 meters is very limited.

I hope to catch most of the presentations & equipment showcasing on film as well to share with those who can’t make it! Kinda cool this just so happened to be in Austin. Maybe this will be an excellent opportunity to check out some of Flex’ 6000 series radios. One is missing from my desk…. Elecraft is also scheduled to be there as a vendor, oh my… I might have to leave my pocketbook at home, LOL. I just registered for the presentations & not the meals, but if you’re around, come say hello πŸ™‚ I’ll be the goofy guy carrying around a camera grinning ear to ear πŸ™‚

    I’m hoping to be on a much needed SOTA trip that weekend or I would join you. AK5SD

    I would love to attend, but I have other commitments in South Florida this month. Hopefully the XYL and I can attend a future event.
    Enjoy and eat well!
