I am piecing together a Conar Information page. If you are a fan of these kits, take a look and let me know how
the beginning looks. If you have some information to add, please email me. Would like to maintain readable PDF
copies of any and all Conar manuals. So send them if you have them, please.

Hello.

When I think Conair, I think, Hair Dryers!
Can you imagine the 2 product lines merging?!
'Yes Sir! with the New and Improved Conar 2000 Super Deluxe, you can both dry your hair but can have a QSO on 40 meters at the same time!
And with the new super gossip attachment, you can both dry your nails, and send up the 40 WPM!
Yes, ONLY the Conar 2000 Super Deluxe has it!'

Hello.

Anyone remember NRI?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Radio_Institute
I opted for the Audel series.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawkins_Electrical_Guide
I have some old Conar stuff.
But, I saw the Foly Belsaw school of locksmithing and was hooked.
I can get into and out of all sorts of stuff.
I do escape routines deluxe!
That is why I look at what was, and what is, and imagine convergence.
We now have tablets that are telephones that are video screens that are computers, etc.
We had a Russian super spy that had a vacuum cleaner she used to signal Moscow with.
So, A ham rig/hair dryer is what I am holding out for.
The heating element could be that tube final.
Clearly this would take some work, not exactly Dick Tracy material, but who knows?

   Do you have a large collection of CONAR gear ?   
I would like to aquire a CONAR transmitter but they don't seem to come up for sale as often as they once did .
 The Novice type transmitters of the tube era are a load of fun to collect and use .

Wow, I didn't realize Conar made so many products.

How about this company mashup:  Conar and Sonar!  Smiley

I am not a collector, but it was my first novice station in the late 70's. I have acquired my own set of twins,
and there are quite a few on eBay as we speak. They seem to come in waves. Be prepared to do some work
on them, no matter what the sellers say. I have considered trying to put together a complete Conar room. 
I have a Conar oscilloscope  as well. Not sure if I will or not, yet. But the information needs to be gathered and saved.
