True enough! Just this past week I picked up a really neat looking model
28 TTY from a HAM that was having a moving dump. Not 'moving sale', DUMP!
There was a dumpster in front of his house, and a note on the local net of
the starting time.

Everything he did not want (and it was a LOT) started toward the dumpster.
If you caught it before it it hit the ground, it was yours!

He said he had some more TTY gear that he would probably not drop until
just before he was ready to leave... I left him my card!
