I heard Quinn say he went there.  I did read something a few years ago 
that made me laugh.  Some guy went to that year's Dayton Hamfest and 
came home with a new antenna.  He had his brother come over and help him 
put it up.  The brother was on the roof raising the pipe the antenna was 
attached to by pulling a rope tied to it.  The guy who bought it was on 
the ground.  For whatever reason, the guy on the ground was barefoot.

As they were raising the pipe, the guy on the roof lost control.  The 
antenna and pipe went the wrong way.  The guy on the ground tried to 
save his antenna from falling to the ground.  He didn't have to worry. 
It didn't fall.  The power line caught it.  Needless to say the guy 
never got to use the antenna, the radio he would have connected it to or 
any of his other radio gear.  He didn't even have to worry about calling 
the power company to come over and remove the antenna.  He didn't have 
to explain to his wife what happened.  He didn't have to worry about the 
phone  bill, the hospital bill, the credit card bills.  In fact he never 
had to worry about anything ever again.
