Engineer's Log of Mark W. Persons
A Visit to Lima, Ohio

Monday, May 20, 2013: 

It was a memorable day.  I stopped at Fair Radio Sales in Lima, Ohio.  I remember seeing their ads in electronic magazine back in the early 1960's. 

Yes, they are still in business selling government and commercial surplus electronic equipment. 

There is even have a dog to check out each visitor.  

Electronic equipment of all kinds was stacked to the ceiling.

This has to be one of the largest collections of left-over equipment for sale anywhere. 

As it was described to me, "If we don't have it, then you don't need it."  
Some parts were in open-air buildings.

Well, you know what they say, "One man's junk is another man's treasure."

This is one place you need to see at least once in your lifetime.  Mark.

The stories go on and on.  Stop in again sometime.  I'll leave the soldering iron on for you.
