Just thought I'd mention a connections between the Belton Hamfest and
NEAR-Fest that isn't readily-apparent. Attending both will be Neil
Kaltman, K6SMF from California along with his wife (Arlene, IIRC).
Neil is giving a DXing workshop at NEAR-Fest. They left 6 Land a while
ago heading east stopping first at Belton, then heading up this way.
So you get first dibs on the goodies.

Neil is a former Navy corpsman, wounded in action several times in
Viet Nam (Navy provides the medics for the Marine Corp for those who
wonder what a swabbie corpsman was doing on land). His table has a lot
of good radio parts for sale, things like roller inductors, air
variables, switches and so on. He'll be easy to spot. His wife gets
around in a scooter chair with a red sign on the back that says
'Rotten Ol' Lady". She'll be easy to spot as well, and is not the
least bit bashful.

If you see them and feel so inclined, stop by and say hello. Even if
they have nothing of interest to you, prices too high, stuff too
heavy, etc, they are wonderful folks who enjoy amateur radio and
appreciate the chance to participate in these events.
