We will be at Pacificon again this year, enjoying the Antenna Forum and a few other presentations. You’ll probably find me occasionally at my wife’s Premier Jewelry booth or at the Buddipole booth, or prowling the sales floor.
We will be at the Flea Market with some of our launchers and some of our treasures (weather permitting).
Come by and say hi!

Pacificon was a fun weekend. We had a good fleamarket, Dawn had record breaking Cookie Lee sales, and I made a pair of presentations on the Arduino SWR Sweeper and Pneumatic Launchers.
It was great meeting new people, seeing old friends, and getting a dose of Ham Radio excitement.
Soon we will put the new Triple Ratio Balun kits back in the catalog. If anyone is really anxious, drop me an email via sales at akbeng dot com.
Tomorow Pacificon 2012 begins!
This is a big one since it is also the ARRL National Convention.
We are preparing to make the (short) trip and clearing out as many of our orders as possible before we go. We will be bringing a couple of launchers with us, if you are interested in one look for me. I’m not sure at this point where I will be, but I plan to be in the Antenna forum on Friday, possibly at the Buddipole booth Saturday, and Sunday I speak at the HFPack forum on my Arduino SWR Scanner project in the upcoming ARRL Arduino Cookbook and then I have a Launcher presentation mid-morning Sunday. If you have time to come by the presentation Sunday and share your launching experience with the group that would be good.
My wife Dawn will be operating the Cookie Lee booth with help from my daughter Jessica and son Chris.
Big news on the Triple Ratio Balun kits. We have designed a new PC Board and have a small run of Balun kits available. They will be with us at Pacificon at the Cookie Lee booth. My son Chris KG6LXL is selling them. They will be added back to the website when we get a minute.
