    Nice!
    You should look into some modern transceivers...you'll have a lot more space on that desk with the sizes of those! [​IMG]

    Yeah Modern finals cant handle much . with tubed finals they can handle a lot of punishment and they are easier to fix then Solid state . Hollow state also sounds great! i would be interested in a Hybrid though ( tube finals ) but not right now [​IMG] Long live Hollow state! . Here in NL used gear does not come up very often . and plus i dont have anymoney so this radio station is all donations and it makes me proud of it . i am not impressed with people that have 8 or 9 radios that do the same thing i think its a waste of money . 1 radio for HF one radio for 2 M is all i need and all i want . well . thought i do have a 6 Meter radio and i wouldent mind a 70CM radio . but they are useless here as no one uses thoses bands . only HF and 2 Meters .

    yeah , same here , GXG . right now , i have a 2 meter/6meter/70cm handheld . it was a hand-me-down.   i dont have enough money for a full HF radio, but i have a QR666 reciever and i saw a 1watt CW rig using a 1S4 and four other components and i plan to build that . you have a lot of radios ,right?i can give you the circuit for that transmitter .you probably have all the components in your junkbox.


    EDIT: its a CW only , so thats where the trusty code comes handy

    Well I prefer code,
    it is easy to copy even when the band is junk

    Oh and add a brand new IC-729 to the list of gear.

    And an 80m 1/4 verticle

    in the process of building a 6 element 6m beam

    I'm not quite youth any more (I've passed the quarter-century mark), but I'm also a boatanchor enthusiast.

    The SSB station:
    SB-401 transmitter
    SB-301 receiver
    SB-610 scope
    SB-600 speaker
    SB-630 console
    SB-110 vhf transceiver
    all of which now have right-color cabinets, though not all the same "right color"

    The lightweight AM station:
    Ranger (I) transmitter
    HQ-110 receiver

    The heavy AM station:
    Viking II transmitter
    NC-300 receiver

    The portable SSB station:
    HW-101 transceiver

    The mobile HF station:
    TS-50 transceiver
    AT-50 autotuner
    yeah, it's solid-state, but these stupid new cars don't have room for a "compact mobile rig" of years gone by like a KWM-2. [​IMG]
