Re: A high-priced Tektronix RM504
I live quite near KSC (Kennedy Space Center) and NASA stuff is COMMONtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
around here. KSC used to have monthly auctions where they auctioned off a
warehouse full of everything that you can imagine. Next door, Patrick AFB
used to have a used equipment store that was open one day a week and was
cleaned out and refilled every week. The local surplus stores and the
local ham fests are FULL of NASA marked items and the NASA sticker doesn't
add anything to the value. The paper weight on my desk is a like new HP
536A Frequency Meter that has both NASA and North American Aviation
stickers on it. North American was the prime contractor for the Apollo
spacecraft. I can't say if this meter came from that program but it's built
date is from that era.
One of my favorites is an HP-35 that I bought at PAFB for $1 back in the
1990s and that has USAF Eastern Test Range stickers on it.
