My son Ben and I went to the MidWinter Madness Hamfest in Buffalo, MN yesterday. We
wondered around looking at the stuff on the tables and bumping into friends.
Ben bought a used Gameboy for $10.
I bought two old books for $5 each and last years ARRL Handbook for $15. I have been
looking at quite a few of the books at the recent hamfests. I would like to start
building a better RF & Electrical reference library here at the new house.
Look at the cover prices:
1948 - $2.00
1971 - $4.50
2007 - $44.00
There is a VERY nonlinear jump in the price of the books.
