I have an IC-V8000, IC-T7H Sport, 2 IC-F21GM's, an IC-F221 and an IC-F221S. That one doesn't have an LCD, just buttons.
One could say that I am fond of Icom products. ;-)
They're built to LAST!!!

Space doesn't permit me to list 1200 radios. TWELVE HUNDRED, no kidding!

So it would be easier to list what radios I DON'T HAVE!

Ok, here is a few I do have

Icom IC-736 My main HF rig
Kenwood TS-450S: My HF Digital radio
Yaesu FT-736R: 6,2,222, & 432 Multimode

I traded my FT817 for an FT857D: I love the 857 but miss the 817, a rig with real character!

I also have a TS-520S, which in some ways outperforms the 857 but in others falls short.

I can see why you know how to slolder.:) That is a big collection of radios. How many years did it take to aquire that number of radios?

The Crest Radio Museum was started about 10 years ago when I noticed I had a lot of rigs piling up and I was getting more each week. Then, years later, I discovered EBAY, where all the radios I ever dreamed of, were. Themes were decided on.

1st was to collect every 2 meter AM radio ever made. Mission accomplished, except for the Sonar CD-2 and Trio TR-2E. Almost there!

Then it was collect ever Crystal 2M FM radio made. That was also successful. I got all the early HTs. Next nail down every early synthesized 2M rig. I have them all.

With 2 meters out of the way (By the way, most work), I went after 6 meters. Some were prohibitably expensive, like the Clegg Venus and Thor. I have a Clegg Zeus but no power supply for it. Some things are too expensive to ship. Nabbing a Drake TR-6 is a pipe dream. Drake collectors go nuts over those. There was one that was dragged from the bottom of a swamp (must have been in a Flood!) and it STILL went for $600!!!!!!!!! I need a Swan 250C as well. Pricey!

So, after all those, and ARC-5s were collected, I tried Boat Anchors. These I had to try to find locally as shipping was impossible. There were many estate sales and Swapmeets visited, and slowly the boat anchors increased.
Suddenly,my house was 110% full, and no way to squeeze in even another HT! So, I began the West Wing of the Museum, here in the El Cajon Valley at work. The boss was a little disconcerted as the radios began piling up. But after awhile, it became a tour stop when customers visited the plant. They were blown away to see so many beautiful, restored antique radios. Some even are in the plant lobby, like my 2 Philco Cathedrals in all their glory.

Besides radios, I also have one of the most complete Manual collection in the world. Must be near 10,000 Vintage and current Ham Radio manuals and Service manuals. (NO, don't ask me to Xerox one for you. Have you ever tried that? It took me 5 days of coming in early to copy a HW-101 manual and a Ream of paper!)

But now, even WORK is filled up and more room is sought. I really need a building about the size of a K-Mart to properly display and label them. Also, I need people to come and see them too. Despite being the one of the largest collections on Earth, very few people have had the pleasure of visiting the Museum. But those who have are in Boat Anchor Heaven!!

Only radio at the address on my license is the 2410 I got at a hamfest for $50.

If you really want it bad enough to break into my house to get it, just let me know and I'll give it to you. I'd rather lose the radio than repair the damage to my doors/windows. The doors on the truck the FT-1802 is in are always unlocked, bring a #2 Phillips so you don't tear up the dash..

The keys are usually in the car the FT-2400 is in. You can have the radio, but you have to take the car too. I paid $40 more for the car than I paid for the used radio. :)

A bunch of Drakes for the 'traditional' HF bands;

Several Cubics for the WARC bands;

FT726Rs for 6/2/430/440;

Some assorted scanners, mobile rigs and other junk.

before the sale i was the owner of:

However now i simply mooch a pro III and an DR-605T

With my recent military enlistment my buying of new equipment may need to be postponed but I was hoping to pick myself up a new ic-7000 and an ic-vx7/8 along with another 2m mobile for my car...i miss my 242.

Well if they come looking at my place chances are they won't find much. Might get one of my 746's and a 2 meter rig. The rest of my collection is someplace else :cool:

As far as this PIN number.. Octal? 7 pin? What kind of socket?? :D

[QUOTE=W5INC;1462183]

The Crest Radio Museum was started about 10 years ago when I noticed I had a lot of rigs piling up and I was getting more each week. Then, years later, I discovered EBAY, where all the radios I ever dreamed of, were. Themes were decided on.

1st was to collect every 2 meter AM radio ever made. Mission accomplished, except for the Sonar CD-2 and Trio TR-2E. Almost there!

Then it was collect ever Crystal 2M FM radio made. That was also successful. I got all the early HTs. Next nail down every early synthesized 2M rig. I have them all.

With 2 meters out of the way (By the way, most work), I went after 6 meters. Some were prohibitably expensive, like the Clegg Venus and Thor. I have a Clegg Zeus but no power supply for it. Some things are too expensive to ship. Nabbing a Drake TR-6 is a pipe dream. Drake collectors go nuts over those. There was one that was dragged from the bottom of a swamp (must have been in a Flood!) and it STILL went for $600!!!!!!!!! I need a Swan 250C as well. Pricey!

So, after all those, and ARC-5s were collected, I tried Boat Anchors. These I had to try to find locally as shipping was impossible. There were many estate sales and Swapmeets visited, and slowly the boat anchors increased.
Suddenly,my house was 110% full, and no way to squeeze in even another HT! So, I began the West Wing of the Museum, here in the El Cajon Valley at work. The boss was a little disconcerted as the radios began piling up. But after awhile, it became a tour stop when customers visited the plant. They were blown away to see so many beautiful, restored antique radios. Some even are in the plant lobby, like my 2 Philco Cathedrals in all their glory.

Besides radios, I also have one of the most complete Manual collection in the world. Must be near 10,000 Vintage and current Ham Radio manuals and Service manuals. (NO, don't ask me to Xerox one for you. Have you ever tried that? It took me 5 days of coming in early to copy a HW-101 manual and a Ream of paper!)

But now, even WORK is filled up and more room is sought. I really need a building about the size of a K-Mart to properly display and label them. Also, I need people to come and see them too. Despite being the one of the largest collections on Earth, very few people have had the pleasure of visiting the Museum. But those who have are in Boat Anchor Heaven!!

WA6MHZ have you thought about making a web page for all of your radios for the folks who can't travel to your part of the world? I know I would visit your page along with a lot of others who would like to share in the knowledge you have aquired in your lifetime. That is one of the truely great things of the internet. From your posts it sounds like your son is more then computer literate. Get him off the games and get him on Front Page making a web site for you. This would be a good job training program for your son as he can use this skill to get a job in the real world.:)

I actually did have a crude web page up for awhile on the Museum, and it was widely read. Tremendous number of hits. But then, some RAT BASTARDS found it and started to make very unkind comments on it. Sure the radios are stacked up! I don't have the room to put them on nice tables or in pretty shelves. I need a very very large building to do that. But the final straw was when they found out my wife was Chinese. I received a barage of incredibly RACIST comments on her, so I shut down the site. Since then, I have had a massive request to put one back up, but I know very little about web sites. I do put on Powerpoint presentations on the Museum for all the radio clubs around the area. In fact, on Thursday, March 12th, I am putting on the program for the Amateur Radio Club of El Cajon (wa6bgs.org). I write a column on radio Restoration and collecting every month for the club's newsletter THE COUNTERPOISE. Also, I have put on Programs for several ARRL Conventions and am available to put on more if invited. But I need some help with a website. I might be able to fix the most difficult broke radio there is, but assembling a website is not one of my skills.

Although I haven't used CB for some time, I am seriously considering setting a few up for me, a mate of mine who lives a short distance away, his mum and dad who are just up the road from him, and his sister who is just across the fields. The 11m band is so clear around these parts nowadays, that there is a lot going for it just so a few of us can keep in touch - far better than other options.

Space doesn't permit me to list 1200 radios. TWELVE HUNDRED, no kidding!

So it would be easier to list what radios I DON'T HAVE!

Ok, here is a few I do have

Icom IC-736 My main HF rig
Kenwood TS-450S: My HF Digital radio
Yaesu FT-736R: 6,2,222, & 432 Multimode
(Linears for each VHF/UHF band)
Icom IC-228A: Packet-Winlink/BBS
Kenwood TM-201A:Packet-APRS
Kenwood TM-D700: FM simplex VHF/UHF
Yaesu FT-225R: Aux 2M SSB rig
Icom IC-120:1296 FM

HTs: Kenwood TH-F6A, Kenwood TH-D7A, Yaesu VX-1, VX-2, VX-7
plus a whole whole bunch more


Vintage radios;
Heathkit:
SB-10, SB-100 (2), SB-101 (3), SB-102, SB-301 (4), SB-300 (2) SB-310, SB-303, SB-313, SB-400,SB-401(2), SB-110(3), SB-500, SB-600(3),SB-610, SB-620, SB-630, SB-640, SB-650, HW-100 (2), HW-101(3 or 4), HW-12, HW-12A, HW-22, HW-22A, HW-32, HW-32A(2), HW-32 Dynalab Tribander, HW-20, HW-30 (25), HW-10, HW-18(2), HW-16, DX-20, DX-40, DX-60B, HX-11, HX-20, CB-1(2), HW-10, HW-29, HW-29A(2), HW-7, HW-17(3), GR-54, GR-64(2), GR-81(2), GR-91, HR-1680, HW-202(3), HW-2036(3), VF-7401, CR-1 OH and ALOT more I can't remember!!!!

And that was just the Heathkits! Loads and loads more Hallicrafters, Hammarlund, National, Johnson, Multi-Elmac, Gonset, Drake, Swan, SBE, Atlas,WRL/Globe/Galaxy, & even a couple Collins! etc. etc. Would take many many pages to list them all.

I use the TS-450 for HF digital as well. Works great for it.

Over the years I've moved often enough that paring down was necessary. Then between September 2004 and April 2007 we moved five times, including the BIG move from New Jersey to Florida that cost me $8400 for the mover. So the big collections of years past are gone.

Perhaps a better question would be "How many rigs do you need?". I've been a ham for over 30 years, and I too went through the "big collection" phase. In the mid 1980s, I decided to collect Hallicrafters, and amassed a 200+ piece collection. All gone now. Next it was solid-state HF rigs - collected about 20 of those. I also homebrewed more than my share of simple rigs and accessories.

Nowadays, I'm just a simple go anywhere, plug'n'play type of ham. My Yaesu FT-817 does it all, does it very well, and does it from almost anywhere :).

Perhaps a better question would be "How many rigs do you need?".

One station per band (including amplifier, tuner, wattmeter and dummy load - along with accessories for each position) is how my shack is currently set up.

Or will be set up when I get the space.

This includes the WARC bands and all of the VHF/UHF bands on which I care to operate. Every position with the exception of 30M will have a dedicated amp.

A maximum of four operators can currently be accomodated. This capacity will eventually be expanded to allow concurrent operation on every band from 160M through 440MHz and possibly higher.

I also have a few small mobile rigs (TS440S, TS130S, TR9130 and so forth) that are used for mobile contesting, Field Day and other types of portable operation.

Then there's the matter of the monitoring and scanning equipment which is used for various listening, software development and repair-bench tasks....

many HT's, chargers, meters, keyers, keys, bugs, and a rented storage room with years of good intentions gathering dust and frost! What I have finally gotten rid of is the too-heavy stuff, the HRO-60 I had for 25 years NC-173 that looked like it was new, the pair of Viking I's, HRO 500, about 2 tons of mil gear, including a full GRC 9 set including the hand generator system, fully working, a complete six meter FM Military repeater set up with the 110 v power supply, the PRC 74 set up, and some new TRC 66's....I used to love that mil gear, can hardly lift it anymore.....

I added a Yaesu FT-101B (perfect working condx now that I fixed it) and the Spectronics DD-1 Digital display (Which was a Bear to repair. I HATE when MFR's sand off the chip numbers to make them irrrepairable!!) And a KLM Multi-2000A, and a Philco 89 Cathedral, oh, what else......... I have a Knightkit R-55 coming (not particulary excited about that one)

Plus, lets see what I score at the Yuma Hamfest Saturday. I am going with big bucks (almost $200!!!) (well, that is SERIOUS DOLLARS for me! Other Hams go to Hamfests with THOUSANDS in their pocket) Spending $200 on Radios is a Tremendous expenditure for me!) So hopefully, I can find some basket cases and smoldering hulks where Hams Tried to fix them and patently failed. BURN THEM UP!!!! I LOVE IT!!! That makes them affordable!

Last year, there was a Yaesu FT-221 2M All mode that didn't work. The seller was weasled down to $25!!! When I got it back here to work, I found the only reason it didn't work was there was a wire jumper missing from a socket in the radio's rear panel (clearly stated in the manual too, the seller just didn't read the manual!) Works FB now! That is the kind of deal I need to find. But I need to find SOMETHING exciting there as it will cost me about $70 in gasoline to get there and back!!!

Hustler 6-BTV 10-40 meters, some 80 meters.

Solarcon A-99 10, 12, 15, and 17 meters. Great antenna at $55 retail. No radial BS either.


Yaesu FT-470 Dual Band HT Great except for intermod from NOAA stations in SLC, Utah. I guess the NOAA is exempt from transmitting a clean signal. Their freq in SLC is 162.55 and can be heard loud and cleqr on 147.12 and 147.18 two meter repeaters. Go figure!!

I used to have a monoband Radio Shack HTX-100 / 10 meter rig / 25W. This is still a good rig when 10 is open.

With all the hype surrounding Solar Cycle 24, I wonder if we'll see it soon. I'm just anxious; 100W HF just doesn't make for good DX! Yeah I know, I need some power. Seems like 400W works fairly well; at least from the stations I have talked too.

Good thread! It's nice to see what guys are running and from where besides hearing about it all on HF QSO's.

Come on Solar Cycle 24!!!

I'm little over an hour from home. Heading for home shortly. Let me know where you want to meet on the band, and I'll look for you when I get home.

Don't know if I can be on >1 hr from now, that will be about 8:00 and I'll be with the family...kids should all be home by then (I think!). Do you ever get back earlier?

Being new to the world of amateur radio I haven't had the chance to collect too much equipment, but I do have the following:

Kenwood TS-430S
Kenwood TS-430S

Yes, two of them. Why? One is in near perfect condition and sits on the bench. The other has some signs of a rough life and is used mobile. Both are late serial numbers and have all optional filters fitted, and despite their vintage, do all i really want for now.

I like these rigs - none exhibit (yet) any of the faults they are infamous for, and they don't have menus! I have had dealings with menu driven controls, and really didn't like that way of operating.

I have made my excuses. :)

I've a modest station to say the least.

My primary rig is my Yaesu FT-857D. All the other equipment I have is 2M or 2M/70cm, although not for lack of trying...

So, the 2M/70cm list is, while still short, a bit longer.

Yaesu FT-2800M
Kenwood TM-733A

In process of converting:
2x Midland 70-1495B
2x Midland 70-4427B (with the small remote control head and the 3400B transmitters)

And a short stack of handhelds, but those aren't worth listing because they rarely get any real use, and most of them are surplus commercial gear that have questionable batteries. (I call 'em trading stock for trading gear.)

Wow, some of these lists...museums would be envious.
All under glass and never used for the fear of dust and scratches ??? what a waste.
I have a well traveled and working TS520, bought new and only required a few home remedies to keep it going for 35+ years. I still use it on 80M, don't want to break a weakened band switch.
160 thru 20M is done with a TS440s I bought about 6 years ago.
I have a RadioShack HTX-10 for Ten meter SSB/FM fone. It sits on 29.600, Squelch at threshhold, waiting for a band opening.
I also have MFJ tiny rigs for 80, 40 and 30M that I sometimes use in the shack but are happier on a picnic table at a remote campground site.
Not worth mention but here goers, 2M FM mobile Radioshack HTX242 and a couple of Motorola CDM1550 radios set up for some 70 CM repeaters. (Rarely get used any more other than travel)
More stuff stored in the garage maybe I will restore after I retire.

Just a Kenwood TS-480SAT for the HF and a Kenwood TM-271A for VHF local stuff.
Both very nice units by the way.

"And that was just the Heathkits! Loads and loads more Hallicrafters, Hammarlund, National, Johnson, Multi-Elmac, Gonset, Drake, Swan, SBE, Atlas,WRL/Globe/Galaxy, & even a couple Collins! etc. etc. Would take many many pages to list them all."

Would one of your National's be a 300 or 303 Receiver, one of my favorite tube radios. wish I had one now.

Radios now:
Yaesu FT-757GX (main digital radio)
TT Pegasus (being traded soon)
Kenwood TS-480SAT,
VX-150
TH-78A
Alinco DJ-560T dual band
Alinco C-5 mini-dual,
Alinco ALR-206T (needs a new mic)
ICOM 220 FM radio but forgot what manual.
Yaesu FTDX-560 (If I remember right, needs fix-in)

My shack has recently underwent some drastic changes. I'll refrain from listing everything, and just show you instead. I'd bet most of you will recognize all of it anyway...

My gear is not very much compared to some impressive lists:

1) OHR100A QRP mono-banders for 20 and 30 meters
2) Kenwood TS-130V
3) Icom IC-718
4) A few small MFJ tuners
5) Some straight keys and bugs, and couple old Vibrokeyers (100% cw!)

Almost all was purchased used.

If I had to make a choice of what transceivers I could keep, would be the OHR rigs.

Use what you have, well. Big or small station.
