Dependable Classic  Time owned: more than 12 months
The HT-40 was one of the several transmitters I used as a Novice, but the only one that carried me from Novice, into my General Class. My first phone contact in 1979 was using the HT-40 to check into a phone net on 40m. They did not know I was AM until I mentioned it, whereupon the net control spun his dial to hear my carrier. It amazed them all, which tells me the modulation level, stock, with no mods, must have been quite high.

My current Novice Rig Round-up position is all Hallicrafters, pairing the HT-40 with an SX-111, the large speaker, utilizing the HA5 VFO and keying with the HA1 "T.O." keyer. A great set-up.

The HT-40 is an easy rig to restore, and all caps needed can be had from Hayseed Hamfest. Even the "can" filter caps.

At this point my HT-40 runs only CW (50w on 40m) but plans are to take it to AM on both 40 and 75m.

Five Stars from WD4NKA!
