Great old boat-anchors that were American made, and they are still a great radio!! We are here to support and help other collectors and users of these fine old radios and their accessories. These great ham radios are pretty solid performers and can still hold their own.  They are well worth the effort to rescue  hamfest and e-bay "parts" rigs.  You will find help from experienced users, and meet many others who simply share your enthusiasm for these radios.
