Hello to all,
And now that I have been forced into retirement against my will, I would like to start this hobby again! I passed my Tech license a couple of years ago, But I never set a station up, So.... Its time! I set my 11 meter up first, 10 meter 2nd, and I am working on 6 meter next, Its all old equipment I already had, But most of it works, And its keeping me occupoed, Out of trouble, and at home where the Warden (wife) can keep an eye on me.
So to the question, The warden coerced me into going to a Flea market with her a few weeks ago, Once there, I was able to give her the slip for about 20 minutes, In that time I found an Old 23 channel Hy-gain, Being from Nebraska I immediately took an interest in this radio, The price was right, $10.00 sold!
The ID tags are completely missing, And the only means of Identification are from the Internet, So I am looking for Schematics, Operating Manual, Any info on how to setup, Calibrate the VFO and Antenna Tune and Load, Basically , How do I use this radio correctly?
I have read some post here on Grumpy's, But I could not find any specifics, This is a really interesting radio, And its reception is far better than my stock Uniden Washington, It does turn on , It keys up, but with weak audio, I think it has Microphone issue, possibly bad cord, Other than that I am not sure. I am including a couple of pics for reference, Thanks for any help. 73's
