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?
