So i just bought a Monarch Ham-1 receiver from a thrift store for $2.00
And im not sure how to use it, does anybody know how to use?
Reply's appreciated, thanks!
I googled that radio, not much info on it. Apparently it's a Japan-made tube SW rx from around 1970-ish. It isn't worth anything, and like most of the other cheap SW receivers from the 60s and 70s, was intended to hear Soviet Bloc and W European SW. It really isn't made to listen to hams. You could open it up and see if there are any original tubes or other ID markings, Japanese electronics companies made stuff under a dizzying array of pseudonyms, probably to get around anti-Japanese xenophobia. I once had an "Arvin" tube AM radio from 1965 or so that was actually made by Toshiba, and the only clue was "TEN" (Toshiba Electronics Nippon) on a couple tubes.
