Two weeks ago we went to the Short Mountain repeater club’s annual ham fest. We stopped by for an hour right after they opened to find anything we needed, and then went back right before close to find everything we didn’t need. That strategy worked pretty well, among other things we found the following in the morning trip.
An MFJ SWR/power meter for 144/220 MHZ
A couple random pieces of coax cable
Several Kenwood HT microphones (Fit for Baofeng use)
A couple of 80’s Kenwood HTs
And probably a few things I have forgotten about.
Upon the return trip in the afternoon we found people almost giving things away, in fact, some of them really were. We came home with a couple power supplies, mobile radios, and a large boy of odds and ends.
It was a great fest overall, our first at that. I heard good things about Dave’s BBQ, though I never had any. After seeing what they are like close by, I may be ready to go further for one in the future.
