The Trading Table

The Group maintains a shop and component exchange for members, known as the Trading Table. This is intended as a source of components and equipment, particularly those hard-to-get pieces (and some not-so-hard-to-get), suitable for member's projects. Over the years it has grown to include a wide range of parts & components, including specialist microwave items.

At times the Trading Table features kitsets for club projects, as well as kindly donations of surplus but useful parts and equipment from members, friends, and our "sponsors". Such donations are very welcome, not only to make new items available to members, but also on occasion to provide some income for the group when they are sold. This revenue helps fund group projects and is appreciated by all.

The Trading Table inventory is ably managed by Doug ZL2TAR . They have been known to offer real specials from time-to-time, so it pays to keep an eye on the listings. The full listings are available for download below.

Also, our Q-Bit journal has a rotating list of Trading Table components and equipment, which sets out to cover the entire inventory over a two, or three, month period.

Please Note: The Trading Table is provided as a service to members of the Wellington VHF Group Inc. Non-members of the VHF Group please add 25% to all prices.
