@Max, I am afraid. Really. Actually, someone told me a story about an old equipment sale that the local rad lab used to have every month. I went to it once. You could buy old oscilloscopes and other electronic equipment. Apparently the lab shut the sale down when they found they had accidently sold a cyclotron.

@MeasurementBlues: I think it's a double pole contactor. Can't tell for certain, though.

@Susan: ....and it has a lot of Soviet-era keepsakes.

Ooohhhh -- I would LOVE to go to that one. My problem is lack of space -- did you see the Welcome to the Pleasure Dome video and slideshow about my office?

Hi Rick -- I'm still embarrassed that I didn't think to bring my wireless mesh networked propeller beanie (click here to see these little rascals in action) -- maybe for next year we shoudl modify the code so that they help you hone in on a fellow wearer -- maybe flashing the led that points in the right direction -- or getting them to emit "hotter" and "colder" sounds...

And here's a Ham show Doug Grant wrote about in July. Apparently it's a huge show--the biggest in Europe, according to the article. It's the Ham Operators' Paradise at Friedrichshafen's Flea Market and it has a lot of Soviet-era keepsakes.
