The Lake Erie Boatanchor group is a bunch of ham radio enthusiasts that have a huge appreciation for old ham radio equipment. There is no organization and no membership.

The meetings that we have are NOT hamfests! I wish to emphasize that. The meeting is a place to see friends and bring any old ham radio equipment that you wish to see passed on for use by someone else. All equipment exchanged at our meetings is done without regard to what the equipment may be worth on an internet auction site. We simply expect that you will personally use any equipment that you acquire at our meetings. Reselling any of this equipment and profiting from our generosity is strongly frowned upon and asking Ebay prices for equipment that you bring will not be welcomed.

It is a former AT&T relay tower located at LaPorte, IN.  Danny is checks in to the Midwest C...  READ MORE

   I was given this photo of Si & Ezra by my Grandmother, Thelma Stone - the sister of noted CBS author and announcer Fielden Farrington.  Grandma thought that Si & Ezra were inspired by Lum & Abner, but since this dates back to 1925, it may be the other way around.  This photo was given to Fielden while he was starting his radio career at WBOW in Terre Haute, Indiana in th...  READ MORE
