Robin Williams on CKLW 800 a.m Windsor, Ontario

Last edited Sun Jul 7, 2019, 12:59 AM - Edit history (1)


300 miles from my QTH (location, 10-20 to you old C.B.ers).

Radio is Pearce Gladding Islander, that was once used on a pleasure boat as a radio direction finder.

The big wheel on the top is marked with 360 degrees for compass bearings.

In the video, you can see two beacon frequencies etched on the faceplate.

Robin Williams is talking about drinking, ironic.

This radio was produced by a small American manufacturer. It dx'es very well, as it was built as if lives might depend on it. Which they did.
