1964 DX Sleeper! "Craftsman"



Nothing to do with Sears.

I thought it was a Sears product, much to the amusement of my tech friends at Antiqueradioforums.com.

I took some razzing for that one.

Built like a tank, TRF, 18 transistors (same count as the Zenith Transoceanic), the same and on some bands better than the T/O, about half the weight and a handle solid as a rock that won't break when you lift it too fast, truly portable.

I turned it on, scratchy volume and tuning, but wall to wall signals on the a.m. band, f.m., and VHF.

This one is going to the master Tech's shop,
maybe even add a bigger ferrite bar!

The dx sleeper of my dreams has arrived!

Oh - it has different colored light bars that light up for each band!

Groovy, baby!

The Rubicon has been crossed


For better or worse.

All that's left to do is pray.

Good God, Y'all!



The occasional skip of the videotape makes this a great time capsule.

"We need to be prepared that we're now at war"


"Some current and former U.S. officials, as well as veteran Iran observers, said the killing was an escalatory move far beyond what they had ever expected.

“There’s no chance in hell Iran won’t respond,” said Afshon Ostovar, an expert on Soleimani and author of “Vanguard of the Imam” a book about Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

The strike, which also reportedly killed Iraqi militia commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, who was traveling in the same convoy as Soleimani, even astonished some members of the Trump administration who said killing the Iranian general had never been seriously considered.

“I can’t believe it,” one U.S. official said. “The immediate concern for me is: What’s the next step from Iran? Is this the beginning of a regional conflagration?”




A former U.S. official who dealt with the Middle East said the strike was especially notable because it targeted the leader of a state apparatus, as opposed to a non-state actor.

“We need to be prepared that we’re now at war,” he said."
