Attended the Coffs Harbour radio expo on Sunday.
While a lot smaller than the Wyong field day I'm looking forward to in a few weeks, it was a fine event with lots to look at including some excellent home brew electronics and a diverse trash and treasure sale.
I've been looking for an RF signal generator and was very pleased to pick up a nicely built Electronics Australia design which includes a frequency counter for $25.
There were lots of books on sale and I purchased a slightly damaged copy of the RSGB Radio Communications Handbook at a good price. A great read.
The home brew display, which regrettably didn't have anyone with it to talk to when I was there, had a fascinating 80m double side band transceiver and a little portable whip with antenna tuner built in - rather like those suspicious "miricle antennas" you see advertised.
Lee Andrews was there selling rigs and seemed to be having a good time, it's a pity he doesn't get to Dural from time to time if only to keep his mood positive.
A great day, I'll be back next year with any luck. Photos.
