April 2, 2005. The weather was very wet for the Timonium Hamfest; however, the Post Timonium party at KB3AHE's house was great; lots of food, drink and friendship. The rain stopped for a while in the afternoon allowing for some interesting antique engine demonstrations. Our thanks to hosts Frank, KB3AHE and his wife Carol for a super fun event.
