The evening warmed up with Thai classical dancing

The National Telecommunications Commission's
Amateur Radio Convention on Dec 1, 2007

After a fireworks display the entertainment continued with Thai Tahawudh taking to the stage.

On Saturday, December 1, the National Telecommunications Commission invited amateur radio operators from throughout the country to the Army grounds on Vibhavadi Rangsit Highway for an afternoon and evening of exhibits and entertainment, with the highlight being to pay homage to His Majesty the King shortly before his 80th birthday.
Over 3,000 radio hams joined in the event, attended by all the NTC commissioners, senior NTC staff and high-ranking guests. There was entertainment in the evening, with classical dancing, performances from Bangkok Xylophone; later Thai Tahawudh took the stage. These pictures hopefully capture some of the atmosphere at this grand event -- HS0ZDX.

A large team from Surat Thani helped with the registration and also had a booth in the exhibition and sales area

Sales were brisk during the afternoon

There were many demonstrations using satellite equipment, slow scan TV and other modes, as well as, of course, CW.
