Will FlexRadio be presenting a talk at Friedrichshafen in June?  For many years these talks have taken place and have been very well attended, but I don't see anything on the program, although I know they are having the usual stand in the exhibition area.

In any case, it would be great if Flex users could meet informally somewhere, perhaps at lunch time?

Hi Jeff,

We are still in the process of working with the exhibition to arrange a speaking slot. We typically have Gerald Youngblood do a presentation but have not yet been able to finalize the details. 

Hopefully we will know soon.

Thank you,

Matt Youngblood

Just to reactivate this post:

Will Gerald (or any other Flex representative) be visiting the Hamfest in Friedrichshafen early next month and making a presentation?  These have always been very well attended , but I still don't see anything listed on the organisers website.

I hope a good number of Flex users make it to Friedrichshafen.  Not as big as Dayton but it's certainly by far the best Europe can offer.

I will be at Friedrichshafen again this year (Not speaking this time)

.. and IIRC Matt Youngblood is also attending.

Not sure who else is coming.

BTW...Friedrichshafen is much nicer, CLEANER and a more professional venue than the Xenia Horse Barns.   As an American I am always embarrassed that the horse barns are the premier ham venue for the USA.

PLUS the BEER is much better in Friedrichshafen

I wanted to go, but life threw me a curve... so I had to cancel. 

I am however speaking at Dayton, so if you're going there, (too late for Europeans I guess)  feel free to attend.

Matt, Lou, and Norbert will be representing FlexRadio this year.  For some reason we could not get anyone to respond to our many requests regarding a speaking slot so I will not be coming.  I need a rest too.  ;>)

Howard - I will look for you in Germany. Would enjoy meeting you to say thanks (For your Quiet Station presentation especially).

Ria - Looking forward to seeing you again in Xenia, and your presentation on Remote Operation.

You can usually find me either near the Flex Booth or in the Beer Garden at Lunch or testing the national booze at the various National Society Booths (USA is Dry)

Yes, but the M&Ms at the ARRL booth are tasty!

@Tim

I am diabetic... so won't eat M&M's But my endocrinologist tells me that the body burns alcohol like it was a fat, so booze is preferred giveaway for me

Will you be a Friedrichshafen this year?

You might want to sample the Vodka and Caviar from the Russian Federation Ham Club

My waist line improved when we moved our booth last year! My favourite is the Vodka at PZK and REF can always be counted on for good wine!

Will be there this year.

Good choice, Tim - I was just behind you in the queue!  FWIW I am also VK1JC and KE1JC.  The latter was not a coincidence thanks to the US vanity call system.

If there are any Flex users wanting to meet up for a beer in Friedrichshafen I’d be interested.

Another good thing about Friedrichshafen...everything is under cover.  All the flea market, trade stands etc. and even the outdoor eating area is under huge umbrellas. I'm watching the Hamvention from Xenia right now, and it looks a little damp!
