We are saddened and distracted by the terrible fires just to our North in our hometown. In the first night the fire consumed six of our past and present family homes, and these were miles apart. Many of our family and friends are now homeless, and the flames are still burning. Many of our childhood places are gone. It is very hard to believe. The smoke here, even 50 miles away, is significant, and some of the flames are not very far away from our location.
This has distracted us from our production and we apologize for this extra delay in filling orders.
We will be at Pacificon again this year. My wife has the Premiere Jewelry booth (a new company for her), you may find me there at times. I will also be selling in the flea market, I may be able to bring some launcher product as well as some good stuff from the garage to sell. Come by and say hi!
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.
