In particular, what happens when you mix much of that together, at the same time.
In my life long interest in military radios and “collecting them” I have settled on a few guidelines. I only “collect” radio’s that I will actually USE on the air – somewhat routinely – and only radios that I can LIFT !! The big Navy shipboard sets are certainly interesting but they are just too much to handle around the house…So I seem to concentrate on ground-portable and some aircraft sets as a result.
Comments, inputs, corrections always welcome. This website is a work-in-progress and I will be updating and adding material to it continually.
Note: The article “Posted by dates” are not correct – I re-dated and post-dated most of them to keep the posts in some particular order. WordPress has its own ideas on how to date material. This is not a contemporaneous “blog”.
