Dayton Attendance Up, Plano Power Down

The Dayton Amateur Radio Association says that over 24,000 people attended the 2012 Dayton Hamvention (R), and that both attendance and vendor sales were up over 2011.
Meanwhile, the Ham-Com hamfest in Plano, Texas in early June was plagued with two power outages, a short one on Friday and a longer one on Saturday. Many attendees went home and many vendors started packing up during the second outage, which began around 2 PM and lasted about an hour and a half.
