I'm 74, retired for three years now.  HB stuff includes a clone of a
 Collins antenna tuner, a typical wire antenna tuner, a couple of regenny
rcvrs, multiple power supplies, field strength meter, inverted Vee antenna,

Projects awaiting some time to commence (retirement is really busy!)
include resurrecting my SX-28A which has been stored the last 5 years, or
selling it, possibly bringing an old National NC-57m Rcvr to life,
 building an 807 low power CW/AM (and maybe DSB) rig and a 3x6146B linear
and power supplies for both, xtal calibrator, vfo and a DC receiver.  I
have all the parts for these but haven't yet had time to begin.  Currently
doing a total rebuild of the master bathroom & closet...not as much fun as
building a DC receiver.
