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.

There's nothing like a good BA swap in the middle of winter! Looking at the faces on these BA enthusiasts, it sure looks like a good time was had by all. As you can see in the pictures, there was a good representation of BA equipment. Everything from Heathkits to Hammarlunds were represented. Remember that this gear is not priced like the equivalent gear on Ebay. Those that participate want nothing more than to see the BA gear find a good home so you won't find the gouging that sometimes takes place with gear like this. Besides the coffee and doughnuts, it makes for a great day!

There is a link to the rest of the pictures over at the left. Bill K8DBN forwarded them to me for the web page and I hope that you will enjoy them. Remember that you can click on any picture to see the full size photo. It's kind of interesting to do that because you can really zoom in on some of the gear and see the condition that it's in. Although the term "rack" is not normally used to describe a T shirt picture, Buddly WB8BIL's T shirt has a great picture of a rack.

Make your plans to join us for the next BA get together and experience it for yourself. DSetails will be posted here soon.     -- Larry W8ER
