The 37th annual Mike and Key ARC Electronics Show and Flea Market is just under two weeks away.
I have no affiliation with Mike and Key, but in my opinion this is the best electronics swap meet in the greater Seattle area. I go every year. (If you know of others, post in the comments!)
The Mike and Key flea market will take place on Saturday, March 10th at the Washington State Fairgrounds in Puyallup. Doors open at 9AM (earlier for sellers). I’m looking forward to meeting other PNW electronics and ham radio folks there. I have a seller table again this year so I should be pretty easy to find. I’ll be selling a few kits along with ham radio gear and miscellaneous electronics.
Mike and Key hosts ham radio exams during the swap meet, so if you’re interested in getting a ham radio license this is one opportunity. More details on the event flyer.
The 36th annual Mike and Key Amateur Radio Club Electronics Show and Fleamarket will be held next Saturday, March 11th at the Washington State Fairgrounds in Puyallup, WA.
This is one of the best amateur radio events in Washington state and one that I look forward to every year. A couple years ago I came home with a working Hameg HM-507 analog+digital oscilloscope (pictured above) for a hundred bucks!
I have a table at the swap meet this year, and I’ll be selling Geiger counter kits, misc. electronics, and amateur radio gear. Look for the MightyOhm banner.
I hope to meet some local folks there!
The 2nd(?) annual Seattle Mini Maker Faire will take place next weekend (June 8th-9th, 2013) in the Northwest Rooms at the Seattle Center.
I’ll be there showing off my Glowy Geiger Chimes and selling open source Geiger counter kits, Alan is bringing his Glowputer, and many other Seattle-area makers will be there (here’s a list).
See you there!
