If this doesn't do it, maybe you're not among the living anymore!
Just got back from the World Famous W6TRW swap meet.
Got 200' of "550 paracord" for $10
Got 10 clipboards (nice ones) for $10
Bought a bunch of double-banana plugs-to-BNC adapters for $1 each
Bought 500 paper/plastic CD sleeves for $2
AND...bought a very clean Kenwwod R-2000 Communications Receiver for $75, an amazing bargin.
These are good little receivers, and the only thing "wrong" with this one is that the top shell of the case has the paint scratched up pretty badly in one place.
Since various vendors sell the correct color Kenwood paint in spray cans, it'll be a simple matter to pull the case, wash it, hit with my orbital sander, and respray it.
Now to get that antenna raised another 10' and continue with my FUNCube/RTL dongle experiments!
It's a beautiful day here in SoCal. Clear, cool, and there's a bit of snow in the local mountains.
Have a good day, everybody!
