BOAT ANCHOR RADIO AT
PAGE TWO - various
additional operating positions upstairs & downstairs!
Valiant" operating position. Chuck, now K1KW, did the
conversion on this Valiant II just a few years ago. The R390A is
a Stewart Warner with the KD0HG modified audio output stage
driving two 12" high efficiency speakers. AM Audio? You
gotta hear it to believe it!
One of the SP600's
in operation. This is a JX-21 version. Panel never cleaned up as
yet, electrically 100A+. In use with a Johnson Viking Two. The
vertical rack is one of our "portable" operating
positions. It rolls around nicely. Seen on the Tek 503 scope
looking at the IF of theSuperPro is a Straposum Signalorum from one of our Fellow Amplitude
Room" just abaft the Radio 1 location. When the action is
hot and heavy in Radio 1, The Day Room can still field 1KW + on
both AM and SSB into various antennas through the Master Patch
Bay. A TS930 drives a Henry 2K4, whilst in operation in this
picture, the HLR-modified Ranger II drives a pair of 813's in
linear mode. The home brew amp with up to 3000V on the plates was
overbuilt by K2MYR and has variable biasing as required.
upstairs workshop AM operating position. The crystal controlled
Challenger makes a decent account of itself, in tandem with the
Hallicrafters SX101 Mk III.
upstairs workshop 100 watt AM operating position. The Viking Two
has a modified audio stage with a pair of 6CA7 modulators.The NC183
is a partial restoration from a storage location in a chicken
coop for twenty years. Most of the guano is now gone:)
One A shot of the auxiliary 100 watt AM
operating positions in Radio One. The Apache has the
characteristically crystal clear audio for which Apaches are so
well renowned....The Hammarlund SP400 is preferred by some to the
SP600. Terrific audio, continuously variable IF bandwidth, and
rock steady. The Panoramics Product 3" CRT panadaptor is WW2
Ma, when I grow up, can I have one of these?
