RF Cafe visitor Duane Hamilton
asked me to post this picture for him of a used
equipment rack that is in good condition. A photo
of the rack is posted at the bottom of this message.
Duane lives in Topeka, Kansas, so you will know
how far you have to drive to pick it up.
It appears to be a 19" wide, full-height (44U) rack.
I would like to find an amater
who would be intrested in this cabinet. It reminds
me of amateur radio in past years . If I were 20
years younger I would use it; however, I am 79 and
I do simpler projects now.
I would like to
fined someone who can appreciate its finish (Krinkle)
and appearance. Preferably it could be used for
old time amateur radio (AM).
I have been
connected with amateur radio since I was 15 years
old. I started in the back room of a radio wholesale
business after WW2 when the men were coming home
from war. We were just getting our amateur frequenceis
back for use after the war. I was first licensed
in about 1951 when I was in the Navy during the
Korean Conflict. I was a radio operator/electronics
tech. The navy taught me the code and I loved it
Most of my air time was spent on CW. I started out
with a Navy TCS-14 that had been converted for amateur
use. Been a long time since then.
have any idea what it is worth. I just would like
it to be appreciated as much as I do.
send me an e-mamil for more information:
