Radios I've Had but Sold or Other:
- Heath GR-64 sw rcvr
My first radio. Got it for Xmas, maybe 1968 or 69. My Dad
helped me build it. Actually, he probably did most of the
work. Wish I never sold this one.
- Kenwood R-2000
General Coverage Receiver
- Hammarlund HQ-110
When I was studying for my novice test, I thought the
GR-64 wouldn't be adequate for Ham work. Saw an ad in the
Kodak paper and again, my Dad drove me out to Greece to
check it out. It was $100 used and in good shape. I used
it for several years, it did have a microphonic problem.
Wish I hadn't sold that one either!
- Heath DX-60B
Another Xmas gift. I loved Heathkits. Replaced my
homebrew rig and gave me all HF bands capability when I
got my General.
- Heath HW-101B
First radio I completely funded by myself, fall 1973. Was
in High School and working at Pace Electronics.
- Regency HR-2B 2m
2 Meter FM was getting big and had to get in on it.
Bought this from a guy out in Chili. He had a side
business selling this stuff. This was in my 64 Fairlane
once in a while.
- Icom IC-230 2m
No crystals! What a concept.
On HF I work all bands, both CW and SSB. On SSB I mostly chase
DX, but not too seriously. Work 2m/440FM mobile from my truck
using the Kenwood TM-733. Bought Yaesu FT-920 June 1997. First
new HF rig since TS-520 in 1975.
Here is my
newest radio. Yaesu's FT-920
