Previous Rigs

A WW2 era BC-348 converted for mains operation

A WW2 era unidentified HF receiver made by the Federal Telegraph and Radio Corporation, similar in appearance to the RBA-6, but covering 1MHz – 30MHz. A true boat anchor, I believe that this receiver was used on shore stations by the US navy.

Wireless Set Type 19. Again from WW2, this was complete with power supply, ATU & Intercom junction box from a tank.
