Well…it’s gone. my very 1st HF rig went to a local amateur who had wanted one since he was 1st licenced, but could not afford it at the time. He has since tuned the it up, tightened a few screws here and there, and given the rig new life.
I still have the faithful TS-440S, work horse of the shack which I use daily, usually getting onto 40 meters at dawn right before I leave for work. I always find plenty of friendly folk to chat with while I eat me cereal. A good way to start each day.
