Well, that looks nice and cozy.
I LIKE it! A new ham with classic old radios prominently on the lower level.
How did you get the knobs on that Apache so shiny? Did you shine them up, replace them, or just get it like that? I have a Mohawk receiver (which I have learned in using it is really much better than its reputation would indicate) that looks about as good as your Apache with that exception. My panel knobs are intact and all but dull.)
Thanks for your very nice compliment WD4IGX! I have learned that there were two varients in the knob materials... On my Apache, they are chrome and very heavy, especially that vfo knob! I was having fun at work with that one, asking co-workers to hold out their hands and dropping into them. None could believe it was an actual knob from a radio!
Ok, back to answering you... I believe you have the aluminum version... I have the SSB adaptor with the aluminum knobs. They don't polish up very well, and are notibly lighter in weight...
Glad you are enjoying the Mohawk... Wished my HQ 160 was up and running, but those old radios are works in progress.... I will send you an email and we can make arrangements to meet on air sometime...
Thanks again for your response....
