Heathkit GR 91. I'm sure I did a crummy job building it as a 12 year old but my local TV repairman help get it going. OK for beginner SWL but I also had to use it as my first ham receiver and it was deaf ! Lucky I made any contacts at all..but that's all the $$ I had until a year or two later when I got a Lafayette HE-30 and thought I was in heaven !
Yes ! I was (and, I guess, still am) WPE0CKG. I was proud of that call as a young kid in IOWA. Within a year or two, I got my ham ticket WN0GJL and later WA0GJL.
Thanks, Ron Ross WB9CTP Bloomington, Illinois
