Nope.  The "new" kit is a transverter to take a 10M rig (like the Radio
Shack/Uniden models) and put it up on 2M SSB/CW.  I bought one for $139
so I can sell my old TS-700sp.

I don't think that VOM was even a kit, was it?

Other purchases included 32M EDO memory @$130, a super nice DVM with PC
interface for a C-note, a 40M hamstick, an SST, Tick Memory Keyer, and a
Kent dual-paddle.

Out in the flea market I saw 2 TenTec 540s, a C-21, some filters and
knick-knacks.  LOTS of Heath stuff, several HW-8s.  I really don't recall
ever seeing the amount of HF gear for sale as there was this year.

Any QRP-L folk WIN anything????
