Every year Sphere Research has a Stuff Day event, which is a high tech garage sale/give-away and get together for technicians, engineers, students, radio amateurs and experimenters in the Okanagan. COVID made an in-person event difficult for the last 2 years, so this year, it will be an even larger event, with the local amateur radio group OCARC also participating. It is on Saturday April 8th, and will feature everything from test gear, manuals, radio equipment and meters to stereo microscopes, tons of free parts (not an exaggeration), and some of the most hardware tech-savvy people around. you can find all the details right here: https://www.sphere.bc.ca/test/stuffday.html
