Spotlight KT6K
KT6K A ‘BENCHER’ modulates the KT-34XA via the ICOM-737, usually QRP without any help. Strange antenna experiments occasionally require help from the ATR-30. Strange QRM occasionally requires the assistance of the AL-1500. The only TEN-TEC equipment that still works is the power supply…but most of you already know that.

 
Strays Add a Stray!
All these solid state radios, yet everyone needs to tune up on the air on top of a qso....
