My ZENITH TRANS OCEANIC MODEL R7000-2 CHASSIS 2WMR70 12 BAND RECEIVER



Is on the way!

This is the holy Grail of Zenith Transoceanics.

They only made about 75,000 of them.

Survivors are rare.

The seller said it was on her Dad's sailboat, they used to sail to an island off of San Clemente with it aboard.

She now runs a shelter/rehab similar to where I work, she sells on eBay and they run a thrift shop to fund the place.

Covid rules closed the thrift shop, they are desperate for funding, so she sold me her Dad's radio for $260 plus shipping, an excellent price for one of these in full operational condition.

So I can enjoy this Jewel, and feel good about it!


Review forthcoming.

From D.U. - a Heads Up


From "Recursion"...

"I get paged for hack attempts on about 60 routers. It's up about 2000% today.
Normally I'll get maybe 2 or 3 in a week; today I'm at (checks inbox) 7200 and counting. Mostly Russian and Eastern European IP addresses.

Something happened, today. I don't know if Russia went into lockdown over the COVID that they have "4" cases of, or something else, but this is new and unusual."

Just bought a Kenwood TS-520S (Tesla help me)


My first HF rig.

It is a tube hybrid, that requires tuning before transmitting. I have no idea of how to do this, but I WILL LEARN, DAMMIT!

The tube finals reputedly put out a very unique sound, as in similar Yaeau FT 101 rigs set up this way.

I will be using it only on receive until I have it gone over.

Total cost was under $200.

So I expect it will need some work.

Fools_Gold will probably be loling when he sees this.

Old school serious gear.

Man, I missed this place!


Out in the boons with no broadband.

Are low cost signal boosters worth the money, anyone?
