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?

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

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.
