I have sold at & attended the SCARC in Sussex county hamfest for over 30
years and Kelly & his club always do a great job. I have scored quite a
few vintage computer related items there over the years but the best
bargain I got there was a KIM-1 Rev B for $20 back in 2016 . The seller
said it didn't work but I brought it home, applied power, hit reset & it
came to life. I think the seller might have confused the SST slide switch
for a power switch. I entered the clock program & slot machine programs
from the "First Book of KIM" and they ran fine. Hamfests are a great
source for finding vintage chips, passive components connectors, ribbon
cables, etc. I always ran into quite a few VCF list members at area
hamfests and while many are hams, many are not. So if you get a can, check
out the Sussex hamfest if you are able.
