Here is my first transceiver the famous Heathkit HW101. I used this rig which I bought for US$ 299,95 in 1975 with my first call PA0MTE. All tubes inside except for the VFO
My second tranceiver. All transistorized except for the PA. Had also a build in power supplay which made it quite heavy. Bought it second hand for € 300
With this FT1000MP I worked most of my entities.
Sometimes you need a little more power....
Unfortunately the display is not working as it should. But who cares now I have the IC7300
The famous IC7300.
