 Jeff Harvey (of tesla-2) and I survived day 1 of the Dayton Hamfest.  
But - I didn't get to John Heck's booth until about 1:00 - and he 
informs me that two or three fellow coilers were there at about 12:30!  
Sorry to have missed you guys- drop me an E-mail off-list if you were 
there! (I don't know who it was...)

I WILL be there at booth 2634 at 12:00 saturday sharp, unless there is a 
torrential downpour or something...  Incidentally - this booth is one 
row away from the Mendelson's MECI tent - the side with all the books.  
John will not be there tomorrow (he says) so the spot will be empty 
except for whoever is standing around...

So - what'd I get so far?  Lots of stuff! - 6-plug outlet strips for $1, 
12 and 120 V muffin fans for $1, 1200 volt 100 amp 3-phase bridge 
rectifier modules for $5, and an HP 204C sig gen (demo'd as working) for 
$50.  I probably paid too much for that - but HEY - it works and I 
wanted it!  Didn't see any doorknob caps, ignitrons, or anything really 

Also saw some possible tesla/HV buys at the Nebraska Surplus place - 40 
KVDC 0.04uf pulse caps for $119, HV knife switches, Jennings vacuum 
contactors and vac caps, etc.  Someone else had a 100uf 10 Kv Maxwell 
pulse cap for (!) $450...

Hope to see you there tomorrow!  Bring your suntan lotion as it was 94 
and clear today...
