Despite the errant tuner, communications frm the Fair were a success wid the large whip antenna! JD & IXN heard people talking in the background at the OC Fair, and IXN gave JD an update on Lees new knee recovery. PEQ also worked a shift at the Fair, wid CCD working the shift before Dan. HHC checked in frm the Fair Booth covering fer AF6C who was busy handling Fair traffic. IXN thinks that the automatic antenna tuner should be eliminated at the Fair next year.
