Scroll down a few posts and you can see a couple very cool pix of Coro's shack. I'd love to find out how he smuggled that Heathkit SB Series transceiver into Cuba! Also pictured is an old SW portable that looks to be from the 70s.

Nothing nefarious was necessary to obtain Heathkit radios.  He may have purchased kits new from a Heathkit dealer in any latin American country, Canada or Spain.  All those countries have always had normal trade relations with Cuba.  He may have purchased them from a ham in those countries or received it as a gift.

Arnie does a great job of representing Cuban hams to the world.

That's not what he is saying. The Heathkit could have purchased from Spain, a Latin American country, or Canada. Our neighbor Canada doesn't have all the nonsense embargo restrictions that Americans have to contend with.

Careful reading is important when critiquing a post.  Please note the comma between "Latin American countries" and "Canada and Spain.  

As one wag stated "Court cases are won and lost based on the location of a single comma";  You lost your posting case!  The comma in my sentence separates Canada and Spain from being included in Latin American countries.  Smiley

It may not be now but it won't be long until it is. Fifty years from now, Texas will probably be called Texaco.
