    Hover your cursor over the intended post, and a "Like" link should pop up on the right side.
    It isn't visible otherwise.

    Here is my 70 cm homebrew antenna with the 19db front to back ratio. It is in for a modification. I can post the measurements at a later time on how I made it. This is a very good antenna. I has able to get repeaters in the States from Toronto On. Just let me know and I can stick it in with under radio modes topic.

    Not much to say, this is what I have in my truck, all vehicles have SSB radios, I got this one because it was a cheap SSB and a friend had it and said it doesn't drift. Not much you can do to tune it up, it's pretty much what it is, nothing fancy.

    Will picture my other radios sometime.

    I just bought one of those Uniden 980SSB CB. When the weather clears up, I am going to install it. I already have an antenna mounted on my truck.

    The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper.
    Once we as a society lose that affinity we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself.

    Kenwood TS-520 HF Transceiver with VFO-520 external VFO and SP-520 Speaker - This is a hybrid rig with solid state and tube components.

    Hallicrafters SW-500; pretty much same as an S-120, just dressed up purdier.
    From AM up to 30 MHz; shortwave is AM only. First produced 1961
    4 tubes
    12BE6 = Oscillator & Mixer,
    12BA6 = IF Amplifier and BFO,
    12AV6 = 1st Audio Amplifier, AVC and Detector,
    50C5 as the Power Output Amplifier

    The standard AM broadcast band is marked with the old Conelrad Civil Defense emblem which consists of a triangle inside of a circle. The CD emblems are found at 640 KHz and 1240 KHz. It was superseded by the "Emergency Broadcast System" in 1963. And it in turn was superseded by the "Emergency Alert System" in 1997.

    This was the first shortwave radio I purchased shortly after getting out of the Navy and coming home. I keep it for sentimental reasons and still play with it occasionally. It's a crappy pic, I need to take another one some day.
    .

    .
    GE 572; produced 1954
    5 tube AM clock radio

    I completely disassembled this one. Cleaned the chassis and fixed some ground connections, sometimes soldering, sometimes adding a lock washer under some nuts. Put the case under water in the bathtub and scrubbed it with a soft brush. Came out looking almost new. The clock face is paper, thank goodness it wasn't too bad and cleaned up easily. The knobs at top of the clock are not original. The originals were round with knurled edges and the same color as the case, but this is the way I received it.

    I had this on top of the bench just to listen to our local conservative radio talk show while playing at the bench. A few years ago they added an FM station and eventually dropped the AM and it turned into an ESPN sports/talk station. So now I don't listen to it anymore. The clock keeps better time than any of the techie digitals in the house.
