K5KRM Vintage tube radio (boatanchor) shack

JSCARC member, Milt K5KRM gets his tube radios ready to warm up the shack as winter approaches.

Milt’s primary radios are a Kenwood TS-520 (previously owned by astronaut Steve Lindsay), a Heathkit HW-100 and a Drake 2B.  You can find Milt using the TS520 or HW100 while regularly checking into the 20m SSB Maritime Net 14.300 MHz.

 “the Drake 2B is the absolute best receiver I have used since I was first licensed in 1957…the Heathkit HW-100 has 16 miniature tubes and two 6146’s, it’s my shack “hand warmer in the winter time…”
