2. Constant


It is a clear channel station, but that's still pretty good.

"The Jim Bohannon Show", or something.

I am amazed at how how this old reciever is, like every few Khz a signal!

I am having a blast, even that cool tube electronic smell when I open the back to keep the shielded mini tubes cool.
