Frank Cuevas (W6AOA)

Abt 1996

Frank got me started in amateur radio back in 1963, what a project !!! He helped me get my novice WN6FPE.

Saw Frank once a month on my way home from the TRW swap meet every month. He sure sold me lots of gear at Henry Radio also. What a great guy to talk to and do business with at Henry's.

Frank's gravelly voice was instantly recognizable on 20 meters. I met him one Easter weekend around 1970 and he showed me his shack. Nice HB pair of 4-1000s and a BIG variac. In later years he only ran a Henry 2K. He was one of the characters of the day and always had a great signal from his central L.A. Qth.

Hey Harris, I've seen that HB 4-1000a pair in action, well, actually the "second" pair... I think only Frank could "Melt" that tube !!! I've actually seen the caved-in 4-1000!!! what a signal...

I recall Frank.said he could turn the Variac up to 6000 volts. He ran that into a 204BA. Loud at my Utah QTH, I was VE4AH/W7 at the time. The 2K-4 was a midget compared to the big amp!
