I've had good luck with estate sales, in those cities where there's a very large population of elderly folks. A lot of 1970s-era table radios and brand name multi-band portables and vintage hi-fi gear can be found. It's usually in great condition, sans the nicotine and dust.

I've always had good luck at the Flea Markets, picked up a nice icf-9650W at one yesterday for $10 nice sound and beefy radio.

Gave up on flea markets long ago around here. Nothing but stuff landfills wouldn't take.

I have to say that I too have giving up on flea markets and garage sales. Around here it all junk and within $5 of new. I live in the mid west so maybe it's a mid west thing??
