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.
I 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
