Charles, you are paralleling my thoughts.  Here in the NYC Metropolitan area
(as you know) we are lucky if a Hamfest lasts three hours before the dealers
get bored and pack up their vans, much less the three days that this thing is
scheduled.  I am envious of you mid-westerners, especially if the Fest is
loaded with HV stuff instead of the usual pile of left-over Radio Shack junk
that regularly shows up around here.  So what's the true story on Dayton for
parts and useful Tesla items?

Of course, Dayton does have its sidelights: it is also the home of the only
functioning Cinerama theater in the U.S.
