I got there around 10:00 AM. Parking lot was crowded, as it always is. Seems like there were more sellers this year than the last time I went.

I ended up getting a Dell 14" flat screen monitor for $2.00. I was actually looking for something smaller, but for that price I figured that if it didn't work for what I wanted, I was out the price of a cup of coffee.

Anyway, I got it home and connected it as the third monitor on my new Acer desktop. I'm using it to run the Virtual Control displays on ARC500 and ARC536. A bit tight on the desk, but it works.

A really big crowd, but there always seems to be. Of course it's mid winter and there isn't a lot else to do.

I actually spent more time on a phone call with a friend than I did wandering around the the tables. I did notice a good deal of not all that old commercial gear, especially Motorola. Nothing that I was particularly interested in, but it's always entertaining to look at commercial radios. ;)

I have the display set up and am running the Virtual Control for both programs on it. It looks nice, if a bit big. I'm tempted to set up my 53HP and see if I can get two instances of ARC536 to run. Then again, I'm probably going to sell the 536HP if I can find a buyer. Prices have dropped through the floor since the SDS200 came out.
