    I missed out on an TR4-C on the Schulman auction last night, but not giving up hope. I'd also like to find an old ICOM 701.

    I've been downsizing the shack in advance of a cross-country move. However, I couldn't resist buying a second Gonset Monitone CW monitor. At least it's small ...

    I found a Ten-Tec Omni V, a freebie from one of the hams in my club. I got it going; had a short in the antenna circuit.

    Took another carload to Hamquest a couple weeks ago in my quest to downsize.

    In a weak moment, I took a nice FRG-7700 in trade. It will make a nice companion to my FRG-7. These are my only two non-boatanchors.

    It has issues but should be a fun challenge - maybe only switch cleaning he says hopefully - to restore it to life.

    I recently picked up a nice Johnson Navigator transmitter for less than half of the going price. I got it from its original owner/builder!

    Bought a like new cosmetic condition Hallicrafters S-108 for $80. Sold my newer transceiver with general coverage, so I wanted a receiver for SWL. I will replace the PS electrolytic caps and all the paper caps today. My upgrade converter to 6SB7Y and RF amp tube to 6SC7 for better top band performance.

    I picked up a Hammerlung HQ-129X with the original speaker that is in really good condition. I'm hoping to built my first vintage station.

    So far I now have the HQ-129X and a Heathkit SB-221 with the 10m mod. Now I just need a transmitter.
