Thanks for your note from VK land. I've got a VK contact story to include in one of the videos. Q
Good point, JBL. That would also take us into home brew territory. Much harder to get a handle on. Q
Do you have any favorite, classic rigs? Quin, K8QS
Don, watch one of our upcoming videos for further feedback. We are addressing your advice head-on. Thanks. Quin, K8QS
Great Video! You missed the Johnson Viking II. I will ha V to say. I am guilty of having a Collins S Line Station. For AM Johnson Viking II with the NC 300. I also have a DX60 Hallicrafters S-40 and the Hallicrafters TV. I have these in storage but all work as they should.
Enjoyed the video, actually watched it to the end. Thank you.
@K8QS Are you familiar with Murphy B40 'Lighthouse receivers' ?
@ZS1SBW Thanks for asking; I've not seen these before. However, I am indeed familiar with the Yaesu FRG-7.. I have one in my own collection!
The B40 (MF/HF) and B41 (VLF/LF)
were a "staple" in immediate post-WW2 naval communications. They had identical exteriors.
Their weight (102 lb) could cause unpleasant surprises for maintenance personnel if they were mounted on top of rack cabinets as they were on the 50s era Swedish submarines.
Definitely. The Collins 75A-4 receiver and KWS-1 transmitter, just on looks alone. I do not have the space or money or time to tinker with these, but to me they represent exactly what my imagination would come up with in thinking about old radios.
