The Fine Things are Always Hand Made
Hello every one, just joined and find the site very interesting! I'm 77, been a Ham for 27 years (N9LIF) and collect, buy and trade radios. I am very curious about the Serial # on my receiver (001)…Continue

Well, that was my dilemma when I got my Philharmonic. Most radio chassis are a lot smaller and have a power transformer that you can rest on to hold the chassis. There is no way I could work…Continue

There are only 3 things that are AM only, so I verified each coil. While checking continuity on the oscillator coil, I happened to notice that the 1K resistor seemed to move a…Continue
