Back when I had my novice ham ticket — lets see, I was 11, so that would be 1969… I did a heck of a lot of contacts with an HQ-110. It was a step up from the Heathkit GR-81 that I built for that first station. Nowadays parents and consumer product safety would NEVER let an 11 year old kid solder together a radio! I love that Hammarlund! Truth be told, it’s up in the attic someplace. Along with my home brew 25 watt, 2 tube 40/80 meter CW transmitter!
