This rig puts out a BIG signal This is a really good CW rig This is a really good SSB rig This is a really good rig The transmitter is outstanding The receiver is really hot This rig is really hot It seems to be a vintage regenerative type I just retubed it I just aligned it I don't know if it works It doesn't chirp The audio sounds great I just had it serviced It comes with the original box Better buy it now, cause it won't last Sure, it works at full power This rig has wide frequency coverage Frequency stability is great Real popular rig in its day

QST gave this one a really great review It might need a bit of tweaking It was used in government service The dial drive may need lubricating I plugged it in to check that it lights up I'm selling it because I have two of them You won't find one at a better price This is a collector's item

It came from an estate sale I had it on the air just last night It worked last time I used it The only lightning damage was a fuse I have the [] somewhere, I'll send it to you I'll help you carry it to the car It works ok on 80 meters

The tubes used by this rig are worth the asking price

This is the rig of my dreams I really wanted one of these as a kid, but now I've got to let it go !!! The signal quality of this rig was easily recognizable in its day You'd better buy it now, because I'm leaving soon

It's 50 kHz wide It doesn't work on SSB It doesn't work on CW It doesn't work on CW or SSB It doesn't receive It doesn't transmit It's stolen It oscillates Got 'em from questionable used tube stock The slugs on the transformers are jammed It doesn't work - probably never has It doesn't chirp because it doesn't transmit The 120Hz buzz is faithfully reproduced I sprayed WD-40 over all the wiring Just brush out the kitty litter No translation needed It sucks all it can from the wall It drifts up and down and out of band The VFO doesn't work - you'll have to use crystals There were whole HF nets on the repair and maintenance problems The language broke new ground for profanity Marconi himself couldn't fix it, much less align it It was stored outdoors on a wooden pallet The gears are stripped and the set screws are frozen The light came from the two-foot high flame I'm getting rid of my parts radio Better from the point of view of the seller The manufacturer just went belly up and won't honor the warranty If you have any problem take it up with the original owner And you thought the woodpecker was gone If it still worked I'd still be using it The only lightning damage I recognized was a fuse You'll never see the [] I'll do anything to unload this boat anchor It had some parasitics but I got in and really screwed it up and now I want to unload it The rig uses a rare 7360 beam deflection tube for a balanced modulator, but it's blown and you'll spend $80 to get a new

one As I've gotten older, I've learned what a hunka junk it is

The high distortion and bad audio quickly identified this rig

The previous buyer and his brother, Guido, are heading back towards this table and neither one if them are smiling
