Default Show Us Your Radios!

I'll start off with one of my favorite rigs/stations. Kenwood Hybrid TS-830S, circa 1980 with most of the available goodies you could get for it.

The 830S is a solid state transceiver with hollow state or tube finals. A 12BY7A driving a pair of 6146's. The perfect combination of old school and new school. Knobs, buttons and dials, but no menus!

So, show us what you have, had or want!

I had an ICOM 802 with an automatic antenna tuner. Also connected was a Pactor modem. I installed it on my 40' Catalina sailboat. The port side back stay was the antenna, 50' in length. I could send and receive e-mail anywhere in the world on 12 volts power. The only thing was I could not transmit with the auto helm engaged as the RF from the antenna would throw the rudder hard to port!!!

Doubtful anyone would be interested in some nudes....Kenwood nudes that is.

You are? OK, here we go.....

A peek inside the TL-922A Amp. These are from before the HV caps were replaced along with a much better glitch resistor.
