As some of you may know, a few of us have been working with the family of the late Terry Graves (K7FE/sk) to find new homes for many of his Amateur Radio and engineering treasures, while at the same time trying to recover some much-needed revenue for the family. To that end, in May, 2017, we published the first list (i.e., Rev. 1.0) of “For Sale” items for your review and consideration. We will try to keep the list as current and accurate as possible, dropping items that are either PENDING SALE or SOLD, refining item information as appropriate, and adding items as they become available. Items currently available for purchase are listed at http://terrygraves.org
