Above all else, preservation of this gear should be our main concern. It
makes me sad to consider about all the BA gear that has been tossed into
dumpsters over the decades. As an example, I salvaged a TTY Corp. reperf
unit in brand-new condition from a dumpster on the U.H. campus; it's new
owner has placed it in a communications museum in California. That made me
REAL happy.

An estate was selling an SBE-34 transceiver for $25 - before I could
buy it the widow tossed it in the trash believing no one would want
it (happy ending though - I bought a Globe Scout 65A with that $25!).

(Oh, after being a General Class licensee for 22 years, I upgraded
to Advanced last night - sure was a lot different sitting for an
exam before a VE rather than the mean-looking FCC official!)
