Junk store

Greetings all. I recently moved to the Chattanooga area and I am 
wondering if there is an electronics junk store nearby.  I'm from the 
Dayton, Ohio area and got spoiled with Ham-vention and big electronic 
surplus stores where you could get just about anything. I'm looking for 
750-1500VA UPSes (with or w/o batteries), bus-bars, 12 volt switching 
power supplies (10amp+), old PC towers (with or without MB/CPU/RAM/PSU) 
and other odds and ends for computing / ham radio projects. I'm also 
open to direct purchase/barter with people off list. Thanks.

Ben




=============================================================== From: David White ------------------------------------------------------ Ham radio, you say? I didn't know you were in to that. Since you and I wor= k together, once I can actually afford some stuff (I still have higher fin= ancial priorities) you have to teach me ham radio. That's the rule. = Talk to Aaron Welch, Dave Brockman or Ed King. = There's a number of other folks on this list who do ham as well, and occas= ionally have odds and ends to sell. We've also been known to have a Chugalug meetup once in a while where *eve= ryone* brings their junk for others to look through and buy on the spot. M= aybe its time to do another one of those soon.

=============================================================== From: Sparky ------------------------------------------------------ I would be in for a swap meet. I have a couple of workstations and some voip gear I have been meaning to post but haven't gotten around to it yet.

=============================================================== From: Ben Bryan ------------------------------------------------------ Sorry for the late reply, been busy these days. I don't have much to sell. Got some small/old 10/100 switches I might just give away. I also have a Nvidia 1050 Ti that's an open box item. I've not had time for gaming. I'm in the market for small monitors, a 600/1000 size UPS and any old raspberry pies, doesn't matter the version as long as it has Ethernet. I'd be happy to bring some donuts and coffee if we meet in the morning or snacks/drinks in the afternoon. If there's enough momentum for a swap meet then maybe we should start a new thread? Ben
