New Site Title and Call Sign

Those of you that have been to my site before might be a bit confused. This site used to be called KBØASQ after my Amateur Radio Call Sign. After dragging my feet for awhile, I requested that the FCC reassign to me my original Call Sign WDØDXD.

It is the first call sign I had when I got my ticket in 1978. It wasn’t reassigned after I lost it when my novice license expired after the 2 year period that they were good for back then. They changed the rules and allowed you to reapply and keep the novice license if it had not been expired for more than 1 year or 2 (I don’t remember how long it was). So I reapplied and got a new sequential license.

Nothing has changed, just got the old call back and should have some new content ready for you soon.


K1SVC S-38 Hallicrafters Restoration – Part 8 Final

In this video we finish K1SVC’s S-38.  I show how we replace the speaker, and then run into trouble, the new speaker doesn’t clear one of the tubes, so we go to plan B.  Then we install the new back and make a new bottom label.

Finally, we put it back to work listening to some shortwave broadcasts and a SSB transmission.  Next step is to box it up and send it back.
