Mike and Key Swap Meet - 2012

Yesterday, we spent the day at the Mike & Key Swap Meet. As usual there was a large crowd on the two floors of the Puyallup Fairgrounds facility. I got to chat with many friends and enjoyed reminiscing of old projects and now outdated gear of previous desires.

As always, I enjoy the collection of tuning coils and capacitors.

Coils for my QRP Rig?

Older hand crafted projects still, starts me thinking. Here is a very well crafted Crystal Radio Set. I am not sure it was actually hand crafted, but it is very well done.

A nice displayed collections of anything, always catches my eye, in this case a large collection of coax switches.
