MT. Tom Holyoke, MA is now a state reservation antenna farm that used to be a sky resort and popular amusement park, it closed in 1998.
The number of antennas that have gone up since closing has been enormous. The Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC) in Holyoke, MA uses some antennas for communications.
I was on top of the mountain a few months ago and it is being kept extremely secure. The reason environmentalists wanted to increase the endangered rattlesnake population in 2017 was to keep the public away. There is a colony of timber rattlesnakes living on MT. Tom as of 2021.mtara.org
Note: As of June 7, 2021 my computer inventory is next to nothing, I get a lot of computer on a regular basis so please check back soon, if you are interested in selling a computer please contact me by my contact form, this is the link pcsteven.com/contact-steven-schaeneman-chicopee-ma
I buy and sell a lot of computers and laptops, people prefer to buy computers from me because of my warranty and prices. Retail stores and websites give people 14 days to return or exchange electronics, there maybe an add restocking fee, years ago this used to be 30 days with no restocking fee.
I give a hand written 90 day warranty for repair work and a 1 year warranty on both new and used computers and laptops. Should there be a problem, you will not have to mail the computer across the country and wait 6 to 8 weeks to get it back, I can maintain and repair what I sell within one day.
Recycling and Trade Ins
I offer free computer removal of old and or broken computers. CTR monitors used to be worth money because of there copper content. Because of the recent decline in precious metals they are no longer worth my time to recycling them, printers have the same problem. There maybe other places still willing to take them off of peoples hands. Usually your local department of public works will have something in place to assist people with older electronic recycling.
I except donations of broken and older computers, if you have a computer that is broken I maybe willing to travel to pick it up. If it has any value I might be able to offer you some cash. Older computers and laptops will have to be dropped off at my location. I can remove the hard drive for you and let you keep it for peace of mind. I can also thoroughly erasing the hard drive when you arrive and let you keep it.
Disposing of a computer can be very dangerous, the hard drive might have a lot of personal data on it, which if it gets into the wrong hands can put you at risk of identity theft, bank fraud, and potentially cost you a lot of money. I completely zero out all the layers of a hard drive, if your are donating your computer I do this free of charge. I use software that meets a U.S. Department of Defense standard, the software is called Kill Disk, I have a licensed version of this data scrubbing program. This software doesn't just reformat the hard drive, it completely erases all layers of the drive. It is the same software the government uses when transferring or disposing of a computer. When donating your computer you will receive this protective service.
Everything that I'm not able to salvage will be scraped and taken to a scrap metal and plastic recycling plant. Nothing will be illegally disposed of.
If you are looking to buy a new custom built computer or a used computer or laptop and want to trade in a working or broken computer, I maybe able to give you credit off your purchase price.
Getting rid of an old computer can be a problem. In addition to possible data theft, there is the recycling problem. Major department stores charge $50 (or more) to dispose of a computer. With me, if your computer is less than 10 years old, there is no charge. If your computer is less than 4 years old, I may be able to offer you money for it! This offer is good for both desktops and laptops.
