From the days of iron men  Time owned: more than 12 months
From the ham days of iron men and wooden ships, and the only filter you needed for CW was between your ears. This is a fun receiver to use, the single conversion and 1650KC IF freq make images a problem on the higher bands, and forget 6 meters with only a 6BE6 front end and no RF amp. Still OK for 160/80/40 CW and AM even today, and 20 for the truly gifted. Mine is paired with the T150, and also does a good job on CW and AM, until you get a ham that is a bit off the edge when it comes to freq. stability and being exactly on his freq. +/-.0001%. Guessing they took RIT out of the modern stuff, or so it seems.
