Hi there. I was born in 1943, got my licence in 1962. My first station was the National HRO-5 and BC-696 (still with me) followed by several Heath Kit, Drake TR3, Drake 4B-line, several Kenwood, Icom and Yaesu. Not long ago I went back to Drake R4C simply because I found its performance is superior and is just what I need for low-band DX.
My main station is a modified Drake R-4C and T-4XB. Backup is another modified R-4C and T-4Xb. Backup for the backup the Yaesu FT-1000. Latest purchase is a Drake 2B, back in 1962 I couldn’t afford it. I also enjoy boat anchor and have two Wireless Set -19. One Canadian Mk III in the shack and one British Mk III for field day.
Try to avoid collecting keys and bugs but ended up with several. Vibroplex, Harlosa Cedar Rapids Iowa (1940) Ericsson and Öller.
Antennas: 2 element quad for 28-14 MHz. Verticals for 7-1.8 MHz. The sea only 200 meter away offers a very good take-off to the west
National HRO-5, Drake-lines
2B or three B, that is the question...
When mobile, brittish WS-19 in the trunk of my Citroen 2CV, 40 and 80 meters
