$5 Salvation Army find - Mini KLH-21!

Well, it does bear a SLIGHT resemblence to a KLH-21, anyway!

(The photo is a KLH-21.)



The price was right, I expected it not to work, and amazingly it does quite well!

Picked up Philadelphia KYW, 420 miles away, and on f.m. picked up public radio in Erie, 30 miles away and an iffy catch.

A cool little fun item!

1. Thats pretty cool.

The salvation army and goodwill stores mostly auction the stuff I look for, these days, sadly.

2. Thanks!



I love in this small town they have an SA Thrift store that's been here at least 30 years.

I saw a KLH record player there that sells on epay for about $200 for 40 bucks.

Stupidly, I waited too long and it was gone.

3. I was amazed the amount of items in the warehouse while I was there

Alot of it to be discarded too so I'm surprised that was found on the shelf, you might want to find where the main center is in your town if it's Pittburg, that would be where everything is sorted then sent to the individual stores, see if they'll let you rifle through the elctronics and find some that migt be fixable but about to be thrown out.

There was new clothing coming in, one ladies shirt had a New York price tag on it of over $100, and a box of leather trenchcoats came in, one of the prisoners on a halfway house routine decided to try ad trade in his jean jacket for one of the leathers and convince everyone he wore it in, it didn't end well he was yelling and bitching about how it was his when the sherriffs showed up to escort him back to another bed for that night.

I remember also when the Major who ran the place started yelling and bitching up a storm one day, someone had taken a shit on his desk (he was a bit harsh to people, but it's a collection of flotsam in there and not people who respond to pattycakes).
