SARC SHOP NEWS
The SARC shop will be open for busnesss every Sunday from 1 to 4 pm, except during monthly committee meetings. At this stage, we have a range of new cable and small components for sale, and some second-hand goods. Terms will be cash only, except that cheques from members are OK. There are several rolls of good used Belden coax for sale at about $1 per metre, with connectors fitted.
Also featured in the shop are back copies of magazines, some of which are extremely rare and include first editions.
The first release is of Silicon Chip issues from 1988 to 1992. These are all "pre-read" but in good condition. The price is $4 each for members, $4.50 non-members. Note that this is much cheaper than buying back issues from the publishers ($12 each) and also note that our first release is listed by them as sold out. As at June 1, we have almost all months available, in most cases only one copy, so get in quick. Orders can be made by email - first in best dressed. Payment can be made by direct deposit to the SARC account. To order, send email to email@example.com.
Also we will be releasing copies of the classic magazine, Radio TV and Hobbies. These will be made available gradually, with only one copy per person, for the issue of the month of their birth. Stay tuned for this very llimited,offer.
