“Two for the price of one”

Bonnie and I spent Friday night and Saturday morning in Cincinnati.

The first stop was the Buca di Beppo at Rookwood Commons, a large shopping center right off Interstate 71 at exit 6 just north of downtown Cincinnati. Despite driving past this place hundreds of times, I didn’t know it was there. There are a large number of excellent restaurants there, so if you are in the neighborhood and hungry, it looks like a great place to stop for a meal. You have a lot of choices.

Saturday morning we got up and went to two radio-related activities. The first was an antique radio swap meet sponsored by the Cincinnati Antique Radio Society. Fortunately it was all indoors, as some unexpected heavy rain hit the area for a couple hours in the morning. I bought a bunch of tubes but managed to resist buying any more radios.

The next stop was Milford, Ohio for the annual Milford Hamfest. The flea market was late getting started due to the rain. I bought a few items both from a vendor inside, and from the flea marketeers once they got going about 10:30 AM or so.

We drove the “shack on wheels” (my old Chevrolet) and I made a bunch of contacts both days on ten and six meters.
