> Dr. Gary Bush, W6GB Radio restoration and renovation

So, you just bought an old radio and you want to get it nice looking again and working. What do you do?

You come to the meeting and hear Gary explain the process. He's got some great sources of old parts and he has a lot of success stories to relate.

If you're looking for an expert on restoration and renovation, Gary is your guy. And he'll be at the ARC meeting in November.

Members can bring items for sale, trade or to be given away for free. You'll announce your items during the meeting then do the trades and such after the meeting.
