Meeting with W8WLQ

 

On September 30, I went to meet with W8WLQ, Les, in Lansing, MI.   The distance I drove was about 250km for one way and it was about two hours and 30 minutes of drive from my QTH.  The purpose of meeting with him was:  (1) meeting with him first time.  (2) getting old tube rigs.

 

I arrived his QTH in the afternoon and he was gone for lunch.  I waited for a couple of minutes and then he came home.  I was building a HF amplifier to boost the power of QRP transmitters I have to 2W or 3W with a 6V6 or 6L6 tubes.  My first question to him was to review the schematic I drew to make sure it works.  He gave me OK and GO.  He made no other comment on the schematic.  Then we had chats for about two hours talking about radios, nothing but old tube radios.  As you see his pictures, he is OM and is very knowledgeable for radios.  We had a great and fun time and when I was going home, he gave me a lot of toys and goodies.   It includes a 1936 Stancor 10P, a 1947 Hallicrafters HT-18 and a Meissner signal shifter model EX.

 

When I got home with these treasures, I checked and opened Stancor 10P and Hallicrafters HT-18.  I am going to work to restore on these old rigs in the winter, perhaps this year and next year.

 

Thanks Les, for giving me great toys and I will enjoy those tube rigs in the near future.  I show the pictures of him and rigs so please watch those.

 

IN JAPANESE:

930日、私はW8WLQ レスにアイボールに出かけました。 かれはミシガン州、ランシン市に居て、私の家から約250km2時間30分くらいのドライブで会えるところです。 

午後、彼の家に着くと、私は彼に、今組みたれる予定の6V6 1球のHFアンプの配線図を見せ、何かコメントが無いか、聞きました。 このアンプは、私の自作1石トランジスタ送信機、ミシガン マイティー マイト(400mW)と使い、2wか3wくらい出せればいいなあと思い、つくっていました。 特に問題点の指摘も無く、家に帰って、次の週に完成し、40mバンドで2Wのパワーを確認し、作動しました。 QSOも気分よく出来、満足しました。

2時間、ラジオの話、特に、真空管の話をしました。 帰りに考えられないようなお土産をいただいてきました。 1939年製造のStancor 10P 送信機、1947年製造のハリクラフタ―ズ HT-18 エキサイターとMeissner signal shifter model EXの送信機をくれました。 

写真を添付しておきますが、これらの送信機の詳細をインターネットで調べて、読んでみてください。 私は今年か来年の冬に古い部品を取り替えて、再生しようと思っています。
