Howard Mills, W3HM is a nationally recognized expert in the repair and restoration of vintage radios. People who want a top quality job are convinced by the results of his 30 years of working on transmitters from the little Johnson Ranger to the big Collins 20V2, and receivers that include the famous R390(A), the SP600 and the AR88, the senior Collins models like the 32V series transmitters, as well as the junior tabletop Collins models. Howard, 77, at the end of December 2022 came down with the coronavirus. At Day Five, I encountered him in a popular area of the phone band for AM on 75 meters, and had an extended QSO that serves to recount how he is doing, his prospects for the future, and a look back on his past. This aircheck recording was made from an internet receiver using the Kiwi SDR platform that provides a visual portrayal of what's being heard. I also have included some video I shot nearly 30 years ago, as Howard showed us in dramatic fashion the "before" and "after" of a Collins 75A4. The QSO and interview produced here runs about a half hour, and I believe it will be worth your time.
