The most exciting occurrence so far in the life of the museum was the recent acquisition of a portion of the collection of Gary Halverson, K6GLH, who lives near Sacramento. Gary advertised some of his collection in ER, and over a period of several months and a trip to Sacramento, Gary and I reached a purchase agreement.
I rented a 17’ U-Haul truck to carry the loot back home. At his QTH, Gary arranged for an exceptional crew of local amateurs and non-ham neighbors plus a forklift to load the truck. The forklift was absolutely essential to load the floor model transmitters (each WE rack was ~600 lbs). Everybody had a great time because Gary had bribed everyone with food, door prizes, and the comradeship of heavy metal.
