I have returned my station back to its “pre – 3Y0I” glory. I’m glad the team avoided that nasty giant cyclone, and wish them luck in the future.
I’m very much looking forward to getting the Collins KWS-1 back now – I can devote all of my ham hobby time on my new love – “hollow state” and vintage ham gear.
Using vintage microphones and bugs with this baby will be a ton of fun. I will even get back into goofing around with the Collins 180S-1 tuners and some kind of array antenna out back.
