[aprssig] barcodes, etc.

Those laser tag games were a simple detector that alarmed when it was
illuminated.  Nothing fancy.

The high end barcode scanners sell new for thousands, and typically get
about a grand for a used/refur'd one thru dealers.  I sell at generally
50-75% below dealer refurb prices, but I can't determine what or when I can
find any specific item.  You can find these type of scanners on eBay for
even as low as $100 or less but you're taking an awful risk from most
sellers who have no clue what they're selling, can't test them and almost
never include all the parts and accessories.  Hay, that sounds a lot like a
Hamfest deal...

Sounds cool.  But how much $$$ for one of those? :-)

That just sparked an idea.  What about those "lazer tag" games that
were popular back in the 80's?  How do those work?  Do they have
unique ID's for each unit or are they just blanket transmit/receive?
Now that would be a great way to check runners in! :-)
