TRW for W6ZE

With the cancelation/postponement of the annual club auction, donations and equipment have been piling up, and our small storage facility is full. Some of the stuff that our members have not put to good use was taken to the recent TRW Ham swapmeet to be passed on to others. In the left photo Steve - N1BKB (left) and Nicholas - AF6CF tend to the table. In the right photo is much of the equipment being offered. Ron - W6WG also participated. Checkout our for sale pages for other items.
