    Please note, the Boat Anchor Net happens on Wednesday nights, so the above is now an archive from Wednesday night. My post didn't get moderator approval in time. Will try to post earlier next time. Tune in next Wednesday if you want to hear it live.

    Someone upgraded their boat anchor although some wouldn't call it an update.

    Pretty much any old radio with tubes, transformers, and variable caps makes it a boat anchor. This includes the TS-520 Hybrids, Swans, Heathkits, and any other AM or SSB vintage equipment.
