HAM GEAR FOR SALE

Hi All,
The attached pdf file contains a list of ham gear for sale . One of our
local hams is in a care home and his XYL has asked me to list some of
his gear. I have not seen any of the rigs so do not know what their
condition might be. His XYL put the list together and made up the
asking price.
Let me know if you are interested

New Show - Shaw channel 4 - Head On - forwarded from Paul Giffin

Good Day

I have just been advised that SHAW TV will be running a show called Head On on Channel 4 ( in Nanaimo) This show will feature interviews with Karen Lindsay of Nanaimo and Aaron Dawson ( EPC Parksville). I have not as yet seen the show, but I am given to understand there is information on Ham Radio presented during the show.

Head On has several different smaller "shows"all of which are rotated so I can't give a specific time of when this segment will be aired. Just a heads up for you in case you watch Shaw.
