Hamvention Haul!

May 17th through 19th, 2019 was Hamvention, one of the largest gathering of amateur (ham) radio enthusiasts. My favorite part is the flea market and this year was the first time in 3 or 4 years I spotted a Coco. Here is what it looked like on the table

Missing keys just a coco with a label and some other items sitting on it. I take a closer look at and and the fellow behind the table tells me he is watching the items for his friend. Not being that interested in a beat up Coco 1 with missing keys for $50, I said I may come back later. At that moment the owner shows up and says he has a whole bin of stuff that goes with it. I take a closer look at the coco and see what I now know is a composite mod and a relocated reset switch mod.

After gladly handing over the $50 I took the bin over to a friend’s flea market spot nearby, set the items out on an empty table and took a picture of it all.

Needless to say what a  great deal for  $50! What a great find I am very happy to have it and plan to give it a good home.

I went through the bin and did a brief walk around the flea market during CoCoTALK! #108  here is the video.
