Not too much new going on lately in my world of radio, but tonight I made my way over to the Zayante Fire Station for the monthly meeting of the San Lorenzo Valley Amateur Radio Club to check out one of their monthly meetings. Got to see or meet several of the people I hear on the local repeaters fairly regularly and look forward to future visits to get to meet some of the rest of them.
Tomorrow morning I’m heading over to the Electronics Flea Market that is held monthly (March—October) in one of the parking lots at De Anza college. Originally started by ham radio operators, it has now spread to cover all matter of electronics, computers, radio, robotics and who knows what else. I’m going to head over and meet up with Mark, KI6FEA, and if I’m lucky, I might even find a deal I can’t turn down and finally get Ellen, KI6FEB a radio.
Saying I’m buying it for the xyl is a great excuse for a new radio… right?
