This one was the best so far IMHO. Great show, great weather, good friends to get together with and a large crowd, especially Friday. Thanks to all who offered to help me unload but by then I was getting my strength back so all was well. Can't wait for the Spring show. :)

The only downer was the inability to catch up with a vendor that had a really nice Panasonic RF-4900 I was interested in. I tried to catch him several times with no luck and suddenly the table was empty and he was gone. Bummer. :(

On a side note, if you're the guy who bought the Kenwood TS-700A transceiver from me please PM me for a followup.

Larry

Just got back to MA a couple of hours ago. What a hoot! Lots of neat stuff as always, too much of which ended up coming home with me... :roll: Hung out with the guys from NEARC (can't wait for the Brookline show next weekend!), had some lovely food, and had fun hanging out near the ever-so-blasphemous bonfire. All in all, an excellent show as always.

Yeah, I too had a similar experience with a shortwave receiver I saw there, a Heathkit SW-7800. Every time I saw it, the seller was nowhere to be found, and the sellers on either side of it didn't pay me any mind, so I just kept looking. Well before 4PM on Friday, I looked again, and the table was empty. :( Oh well, that's how it goes. Did pick up a nice Grundig RTV-320U receiver, so at least I"ll be able to get my shortwave fix. :)

Oh, and as an aside, the bonfire on Friday night wasn't the only conflagration I witnessed. On my way home, shortly after getting on the Mass Pike, traffic started to bog down, and I spotted some black smoke in the distance soon afterwards. Eventually, I passed the scene of the accident, and it turned out to be a white car on the side of the road whose entire front end was engulfed in flames. :shock: Hopefully, everyone got out safely.

I wonder if it was the same vendor, the guy was never there and by 4pm Fri he was gone.

Larry, it was really wonderful to see you and your wife again! Even though we kept bumping into each other again and again. :wink:

I agree, it was a great show! I had a wonderful time!
There were a couple times I missed a radio I wanted to buy, but in the end, I'm happy with what I did find.
I really don't need to bring home a vanload again!

I could have gone for the Zenith 6R687R radio/phonograph I saw. The price came down to $25 and I almost offered a Twenty for it, but I resisted.

I'll probably think about it for months. :lol:

yes, the weather was practically perfect in every way!
