I didn’t go to any hamfest for years, but this year I made an exception. I wanted to hunt for parts, such as a bunch of 2N3055’s, heat sinks and a shopping list full of similar items. I wasn’t very successful in finding the parts I needed. Oh well, there’s always eBay.
What I did find though were ferrite clamps (you can’t have enough of those), solder flux and heat conducting paste. A bonus were two Sirtel / Sirio GPE 27’s for a price I couldn’t resist. This 5/8 wave CB antenna does great things on 10 meters and (after some more extensive mods) can be converted into a 1/4 wave for 20 meters. I saw some nice old Yaesu HF rigs too, but I didn’t take the bait. Too much stuff, too little space..
