Arrowhead Radio Amateur Club Swapfest

Took a drive down to Superior WI yesterday May 3rd to take part in the A.R.A.C.  Swapfest in Superior Wisconsin. Got up at 5 am, picked up Wayne VA3WRL and Clarence VE3WCW and we proceeded for our 3.5 hour tour down the lake-shore. Stopped in Two Harbors for breakfast before heading into Duluth MN and then over the bridge to Superior. Had rain/drizzle from Thunder Bay to Two Harbors but was sunny after that. Arrived at the fairgrounds on Tower Ave. and went into the building to see what was on the tables for grabs. Lots of vintage radio gear, computer parts, hand helds, coax and almost anything that folks have been collecting in their garages that they wanted to get rid was there. There were having hourly draws as well for prizes. Had a chance to talk with lots of the folks that I have not seen in a while and the Thunder bay group had a good showing at the swapfest as well.
