Today was the Ballarat radio fest. About an hour's drive from my place at Drummond and well worth the trip. There was a big turnout and we weren't disappointed with the second hand, and some new, gear on offer.
I bought some BNC through panel connectors, (female on both sides), some BNC crimp connectors, some adapters and the big purchase was an Emtron tuner for $90. It seems to be in excellent condition.
Since moving back from Sydney to Melbourne I've been very impressed with the quality of hamfests here. Perhaps not as big as Wyong but arguably better gear on offer at better prices.
My thanks to the Ballarat club who did an excellent job of organising the day.
