    C-Line station

    The R4c receiver came from a friend's estate. I picked up the T4XC transmitter on E bay, and a friend gave me an MS-4 speaker and AC-4 P/S. I made a few contacts with the station on 75 and everything works great . I also picked up some nice vinyl dust covers.

    Great station with all the goodies you need on today's crowded bands, Drake is famous for that. Poor kitty is disappointed, no nice warm tubes.

    Nice rig! Word of these will spread and a certain collector will blame you for the rise in price on ebay.

    Omitted the SPR-4 and SW-4A. Gotta have those in order to round everything out!

    I have the solid-state equivalent of that station plus the matching amp and all the peripherals. Got to play with a Sherwood-modified R-4C in high school and it was a nice receiver.

    Very nice, George! Closest rig I had to your setup was the TR-4C. Ran like a tank for years, and I really enjoyed using it!

    I've never operated radios quite like that. I visualize it to be akin to full contact radio, gladiator school style.

    Cool.

    You need a slide ruler to figure out what frequency you're on.
