    (Photos are sectors of Polaroid prints, so the resolution isn't that great.)

    Built on a 17 inch wide aluminum chassis, with 8¾ by 19 inch aluminum front panel. Front end (including gear-drive tuning cap w/logging scale), and IF strip is cannibalized from a BC-454 Command receiver (tunes 3 to 6 MHz). Continuous coverage up to 30 MHz with crystal controlled converter. Second IF strip (85 KHz) & BFO from a BC-453 (Q-fiver). Has an FL-5F 1000 Hz audio filter (for CW). Square black S-meter to the right of the slide-rule tuning dial. Octal tubes, except for XTAL-controlled converter (7 and 9 pin mini).

    Last seen in 1975, at American Legion Hall, in Keshena, Wisconsin (Menominee County). Five hundred dollar ($500 US) reward for return (if in reasonable physical condition). No questions asked.

    I will personally travel to where ever it might have turned up. Please PM me, or email: pi316@webtv.net
