Wow... crap... crap and more crap! At least hamfests are universal in their crap piles. :baby:

Yeah it seemed like "this is all the stuff that we couldn't unload during the last one, so we're giving it another shot" I bought a WebTV for $1, I think i got ripped off but its good for parts. I did pickup entire bags filled with BNC connecters for $2/bag though.

Hey! I have the dial version of that rotary phone sitting right next to me. :baby:

I actually saw a pretty decent amount of boatanchor stuff get moved at the last local crapfest I went to.

Sadly all the good stuff goes on flebay now.

I think we should rename hamfests to shitefests, on account of all the shite on sale.

The only thing I can see in these pics worth buying is the big spool of magnet wire. Everything else needs to go to the dump.

3rd pic from the top has some Motocheap: a GP300, a HT600, and a speaker. That's worth at least $20. :baby:

OK I take that back. On second look I do see some interesting test equip. They probably want way too much for it.
