HAMs have been doing that at these shows since I was a kid, and I don't
remember any of them getting in trouble over it.

As I recall, a lot of the guys use really low power inside.

I used to like the Hamfests at Virginia Beacn Pavillion, but now they've
devolved into Windows white-boxes, and commercial radio booths.

It used to be great fun.  Some of the coolest computers and radio setups
I've ever seen I saw in a Hamfest.
