Hamvention is at a busy time for me, and I didn't know if I was going to attempt to go or not. I think I'm going to go, though, because I need stuff.
- New NMO mobile antenna setup
My current mobile antenna is a few years old and not only is it showing it's age - the coax is pulling out from the magnet and I can see braid - it probably took damage when I wrecked my truck last October. The truck is repaired, but the antenna currently has a VSWR of 3:1. Not good. I'm going to completely replace the antenna setup with a better one.
I'm not looking for any real radio equipment other than parts. I have some specific needs (linear-taper variable resistors, etc), but nothing out of the ordinary.
- Arduino/Raspberry Pi/Beaglebone Black stuff
Because you can't have too much!
- Test Equipment
Generally, another scope or a spectrum analyzer is out of my price range, but if I happen to find one...
So I'll probably be at any Reddit or WATwitter meetups, and I'd assume the same location as last year.
