Of course, one could find inexpensive test equipment (e.g. < $15 for
tektronix 'scopes and HP frequency counters), interesting and
inexpensive computers, etc. at hamfests... it was so much fun before
the people who just want to collect, and not play with, computers
began calling themselves "computer collectors" and started snapping
stuff up quickly and then only letting it go at high prices.

Thus far, I've not seen any on E-bilk.
