2017 Dayton Photos



Setup Day Dayton 2017     This was how Dayton setup day started out. Very high winds and torrential downpours.

To show how strong the winds were, take a look at the 1,225 pound block of cement in the rear of the photo tilted over into the adjoining tent!

made QSO's from the KNØWCW station setup in the FISTS booth.
