My very first electronic project was a Heathkit crystal diode
radio back in 1961. I still have part of the case, but that's all. When
in high school, I was able to afford some Heath test gear, all of which I
still have and use on occasions.
I've recently finished my search for the SB series station that I
drooled over back then. I bought an SB-301 at the Scottsdale hamfest last
weekend for a mere $125. All I really wanted was the speaker for my
SB-310, but I was going to get a 301 sooner or later.
I'm presently negotiating the purchase of a Heathkit 6-channel
analog computer. It uses vacuum tubes for the operational amplifiers.
I always thought that the analog computer was an interesting piece of
equipment, more from curiosity.
I have an SB-620 Scanalyzer that was set up for a 6.5 MHz IF. The
Heathkit IF is 3.3 MHz or thereabouts. Does anyone know where the coils
or coilforms can be purchased to convert mine?
I gotta go.
