My favorite receiver – the Collins 75A-4
Sure – modern technology is fantastic. But I have found that this 1955 vintage receiver actually holds it own against today’s modern SDR rigs. That’s absolutely insane – but its true! Plus – the “user interface” is so much more fun than today’s rigs.
Don’t be surprised if something like this ends up here in the shack . . .
I’m not kidding – DXCC is really getting in the way of what I really want to do – which is go back in time. The DXCC bug bit in 2001 – but that sting left me in about 2013. I’ve been dragging it around like a dead cat.
All of a sudden I want a matching transmitter for the 75A-4. It can be the KWS-1 – or even another Collins transmitter.
