Quite a surprise  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Hi. I have been a ham since '63 and am kind of a vintage radio freak. This unit cost me $30.00 on ebay in 2014. It was dead as a doornail on delivery but it turned out to be the relay which with a little cleaning and tweezer work came to life and received really well. Surprisingly well, very quiet no doubt because of the triode mixer which you hardly ever see. Replaced one cap in speech amp and that was the extent of repairs. How does it work. Full 100+ watts out. Excellent audio reports. Receive very sensitive and quiet. I liked it so well I bought a hw 12a which also works great. The only negative thing I can see is a dial drive that is too fast. Am scheming on adding a jackson drive to it without uglying it all up. Try it you'll like it de WB0SNF
