Mid North Coast Radio Expo 2010

The highlight of our visit to Coffs Harbour has been to again attend the wonderful Mid North Coast Radio Expo. It didn't seem as big as last year, although I came and went very early in the day so perhaps it picked up.

Lots of tables with friendly and informative people in attendance.

Some second hand gear at bargain prices.

Like last year the display of antique radios, and not so antique but obsolete gear, was thoughtfully presented.

Lee Andrews was in good spirits and doing a brisk trade.

I purchased a Tecsun DSP radio and a MW Loop antenna that I'd never seen before from AV-Comm. Disappointed that they didn't have any DRM radios on display as advertised.

A review of the Tecsun PL-310 will follow after I've had a good play with it.
