Lake Erie Boatanchors Group

The Lake Erie Boatanchor group is a bunch of ham radio enthusiasts that have a huge appreciation for old ham radio equipment. There is no organization and no membership.

The meetings that we have are NOT hamfests! I wish to emphasize that. The meeting is a place to see friends and bring any old ham radio equipment that you wish to see passed on for use by someone else. All equipment exchanged at our meetings is done without regard to what the equipment may be worth on an internet auction site. We simply expect that you will personally use any equipment that you acquire at our meetings. Reselling any of this equipment and profiting from our generosity is strongly frowned upon and asking Ebay prices for equipment that you bring will not be welcomed.

September 2009 Meeting

While the parking was terrible, the weather was great and all who attended had a good time! Click on the link below to see photos from the meeting.


The Mentor Police showed up and wanted to put us all in jail for parking on the street. We gave them a couple of Jeff's WA8SAJ's jelly donuts and they smiled and went away. It's surprising what a donut can do!

Rob WA8DDH and Bob W8MNQ came all the way from Port Huron Michigan to join us and it was good seeing them. There were a few boatanchors available for sale, including Ken K8TV's computer speakers. Since he has nearly 60 sets of brand new quality speakers, he brought a few to the BA meeting. It was good to see Russ WB3FAU from Erie Pa. Russ is an old AM guy from the 40 meter 7290 AM days. Maybe the 40 meter band will come back soon and the DX-60's and AT-1's will come out of the closet.

The next Lake Erie Boatanchor meeting will tentatively be held in February 2010 at Clague Park fieldhouse in Westlake Ohio. I will post maps and pictures for that meeting as soon as it gets scheduled.
