March 25, 2006. Since I had enough radio "stuff" to hold me for a while I skipped the hamfest and went directly to the Post Timonium Party at KB3AHE's home. Frank and his wife Carol were great hosts and provided everyone with lots of food, drink and friendship. No one was keeping score but most agreed that around 40 AM'ers showed up for the party. Each year the crowd grows larger and everyone had a great time.
