Now that's just plain old COOL!!!
Wow I always wondered what happened to my heavy iron. I used to have 22 operating vintage positions back in the 1980's. Two BC-610's, three Globe Kings and the Gold Dust Twins just to name a few.

Oh geez, this is the guy who I referred to as "radio guy" when I lived in Philly because every time I tried to bid on radios at Freemans Auction House I was outbid by someone. And this became a pattern, it was always the same guy. Vortex Joe, how appropriate!
I met Joe on 6 meters several years ago, he informed me that I was very close to a ham friend of his Bill W2DGB a WWII vet. Turned out he only lives 2 miles from me and after feeling each other out at a planned lunch I found out he could no longer drive to hamfests so I suggested I drive and we go together. Long story short we became friends, as a matter of fact I just returned from picking him up and going to breakfast which we have done every Thursday for the past 6 or 7 years as well as hitting hamfests and visiting ham friends of his. Bill has a collection similar if not larger than Joe's and they often swap back and forth. Bill has introduced me to other hams who also have similar or larger collections. I am amazed Pennsylvania is not 100' lower than all other states from all the boat anchors in the eastern part of the state! I have only been to Joe's QTH twice but had a great visit both times, he is a great host.
