    Let me vouch for that event. It's always a good one. Last year I picked up an Icom IC-2AT and a Radio Shack scanner for a new elderly lady ham. And a Heathkit signal Generator for myself $1.75! And it works quite well, even if the dial calibration is rather "notional.".

    Sure hope it does not rain, though. The WX forecast is not too promising.

    We had a brief shower today in Melbourne lasting all of five minutes comes with the territory living in Florida. Be sure to check the consignment table sponsored by PCARS I understand there's going to be some great gear. I know vendors have been rolling into town this afternoon getting ready to set-up in the morning.
