Fred M. Locke Dig

On April 1, 2000, several members journeyed to Northern California to dig for Fred M. Locke insulators and pieces. Parts of M2998's, M2795's, M2796's, M4325's and M3725's were found.

See the Crown Jewels of the Wire, March 1998 for information on the M2998's, and December 1998 for the M3725's.
