Brian KN4R a really good friend of more than 40 years needed to
sell something to raise some money to buy something else.
I ask what he had to sell and he sent a photo of a nice little
National SW-3 amateur receiver. I've been needing one to have for
a display to go with my Clough-Brengle model 87.
This SW-3 is really nice and very original, it hasn't been "hammed"...
Here's a link to some pics of the National and the C-B transmitter


and a photo I was sent from an old CCC radio operator of the station
he operated in 1938, it was WUEV in Wausau WI.
I got a good bit of mail from old CCC operators after there was a
write-up about my C-B transmitter in QST in 2000.
This transmitter is REALLY heavy, I wonder how I'm going to get
it back up where it belongs.


I need a doghouse power supply for it and a 75meter coil set.


Knee-deep in the cosmic overwhelm, I’m stricken
by the ricochet wonder of it all: the plain

everythingness of everything, in cahoots
with the everythingness of everything else.

73, Ron W4RON
