Nice one!

Was it mostly radio stuff or a household mix of things?

Default Yard sales

How about a great condition Ten Tec Triton IV with power supply and a working National all band receiver for $25.00. That's the radio "junk" my father in law brought me once. He had no idea what he had purchased.

The Uniden 210 XLT was my first scanner. Purchased it about 30 years ago. Although I still have it, it doesn't work anymore.

It was somewhat expensive at the time. I think about $200.00.

I found a Uniden BC148XLT-1 yesterday with a center loaded telescopic antenna. A whopping $4! Like I need another scanner.

I can remember going to yard sales in the communities in and around Oak Park, Illinois and always finding one or two that had a scanner for sale. I brought home my Hallicrafters WR-600 from a garage sale in Skokie $12.00. With that said, I have seen a few Bearcat IIIs, and one Bearcat IV back in the 1990s for sale at reasonable prices around $20 or less back in the 1990s. However, one Regency 16 channel crystal scanner was for sale new in the box for $350.00. Apparently, this guy's grandfather got two of them for Christmas in 1975, and never used the other one.
