    Prizes

    So out of idle curiosity, do you think a Flex 6400 would be a suitable First Prize for a hamfest? Enough to generate a lot of ticket sales, especially in advance?

    Our hamfest chair brought this up at the last club meeting the other night. After some discussion, we decided against it.

    We’re going to go with a Flex 6400M instead. With the tuner. Flex gave us a good price, too.

    I'd play with one.
    Would I pay for one? Not likely at this income level.

    Well, you can always buy a few raffle tickets and take a chance... (not that I’m offering any for sale, at the moment, mind you, just saying...)

    Yup, that would be my level of investment.

    Looks like a cool prize. Anyone who would complain doesn't need to enter. Oh wait, are there some 7610 people complaining?

    There are people who would complain about the origin, quantity, and quality of the rope that they are about to be hung with.

    I wouldn't mind having one, I'd use it for a trade or sell it off at a hamfest for 2x what its worth.
