    Hams in southern California are almost all aware of the long history of the "TRW Swap Meet," which was held the last Saturday of every month, rain or shine, even if it was Christmas day, for decades.

    It closed due to COVID, but will re-open this Saturday, August 29 at 7:00 AM in the Northrop-Grumman parking lot off Aviation Blvd (the home of what used to be TRW).

    This Saturday a special surprise: The K6SLC Mobile Radio Museum will be on site for people to see and tour. This is the kind of thing Pat WA6MHZ was sorta trying to do and I'll bet if Pat can be there Saturday, he would be. Most of the stuff in the big RV is operational, a few real antiques aren't but they may be interesting to see anyway. Bob acquired the RV from John K2TQN of "Antique Radio" fame in 2019.

    This video is cool but pretty amateurish: I hope Bob has a real videographer do it justice sometime in the future.

    Does DXE come there to sell piston rings ?

    I have used a lot of TRW parts.
