I've been HAMing for many years. I have an interest in old American vacuum tube rigs (eg, SWANs and Drakes & WRL Galaxys.) In the antenna department, living on a small lot in town has been a challenge; I've managed to overcome annoying the neighbours by building stealth antennas out of galvanized fence wire including a full size 160m bent dipole, 3 element wire array for 40, 8oM dipole (closeline cable) and rotatable 17 m 3 el beam at 40'on a lot 150x60! Enjoy ragchewing in SSB on 160,80,40 and 17m.Bottom picture is an excellent example of a Drake T4xb transmitter using 6KM6 inststead of the recommended 6JB6's, and a real fine R4-B receiver. I have recently been introduced to the WRL Galaxy transceiver lineup and specifically the GT550 and Galaxy V mk3. I always enjoy sharing info on these infrequently seen rigs !! Lately I can be found beaming south on 40 m's and calling "CQ" around 6:30 edt on or about 7.137 or 7,214 +/- mhz transmitting with my Swan 700CX. 73 and good dxing....David.



This is a Galaxy V MK 3 with portable cooling fan. Left center is the KW Atlanta power supply..


This is the Allied 2517 (Trio) rare and excellent... mainly tube rig. 

This is the Drake T4XB transmitter and R4B receiver...excellent!

This is a closeup of the Drake T4XB transmitter.
