My new 1975 12 Bands of Whup Ass!


Made in Japan.

A 60 inch antenna I can't fully extend in the bedroom.

Tuned RF circuits on a.m. and f.m..

External antenna connectors for a.m, f.m., s.w.. (I read this is a beast hooked up to an outside antenna.)

Beautiful sound on f.m. (not in vid), extremely sensitive.

This one arrived well packed.

I graduated h.s. in 1975, think "evacuation of Saigon".

1. Sounds as though you acquire at least 100+ radios of some type a year. Just curious as to

what you do with them all???

Bye.

6. Which is really strange


when you consider that I have posted youtube videos of nearly every radio I posted here, videos I made myself....

of non - existent radios?



Don't know what's bugging you, but I know it isn't me.

Hope it works out for you.



P.S. - to answer your question, all in all I have about 20 radios.

They all fit nicely in my house.

for finally answering...

It's Saturday, almost 9PM. Check 5085 and tell me if you get anything.

11. It's still there

At least until 1AM EDT. I've identified it. WTWW, Lebanon, TN. Apparently a secondary frequency of a religious broadcaster. This transmission, however, is a decent transmission if you like a good mix of 50's, 60's and early 70's music.
I've got the C Crane Skywave SSB out and I've drug out an old friend. My old Panasonic RF-B45.

And the B-45 is legendary!

Will keep my ears open on weekends at that frequency!

Someone in Germany has a Panasonic RF-B65, that appears to be in like new condition, with all accessories.

17. If I wanted to win for sure

And was willing to gamble, I'd bid $400 via snipe.

One of these about half as good as this went for a crapload.

If I wanted to play it the other way, I'd go $350.

18. OK, cool.

Finally going to see some damn cash in the next few days. Two of my clients are finally willing to close, so if it's still there I'll give it a shot.

Calm before the storm right now. We're about to be buried in work, and there are several large projects around the home that are about to commence.

22. For a modern, general use radio

I think I've settled on the Tecsun PL-880. I keep reading really good things about it.

These guys seem to have put together a really cool kit.

26. I put a bid in for $250

I expect to loose, but if I win it will be the deal of a lifetime.

I am really excited about the Tecsun. There is something else I ordered that you may want to consider. It's cheap, I got this tunable inductive loop antenna. All you have to do is set it near your MW radio and you can boost the ferrite core of whatever radio you are using.


https://www.anon-co.com/product/tecsun-an100-am-antenna

One of our candidates accepted tonight! YEAHHHHH!! I like the people at this client, but they have a terrible habit of lowballing people. If a candidate is making $150k and says they w$ll make a move for $170K and your upper end is $190k STOP TRYING TO GET THEM TO $165k!

Sorry, personal shit I digress into.

27. No problem


on the personal stuff, what you say makes sense to me!

Thanks for the link, you can have a great radio, but if you have a crap antenna, it won't work very well.
