Brief Story Dayton Hamvention 1999:
Friday, the day before the fox hunt program  there was a rather large group of enthusiastic
fox hunters gathered around one of the outdoor vendors that was selling fox hunt transmitters.
I stopped and soon Marvin Johnston KE6HTS struck up a nice conversation about t-hunts and the like.
I didn't find out till the next morning that Marvin was one of the featured guest speakers of the ARDF talks.
Very nice down to earth fellow indeed.  Marvin is mentioned throughout Homing-In.
