    My son sent me a pic of a box for me..

    Apparently my ex-wife uncle who was a extra class ham (who passed away 11 years ago) had this setup at some point..

    I see the radio, swr meter, and I can assume an antenna tuner underneath.. and a key..

    He was the person that talked to me back in 98 or so that I should get my license.. I never did till 2016..

    Going to start learning CW and now I have a key..

    Had one of those not long ago as a bench radio purchased it off eBay fixed numerous little issues with it and then sold it. But it was a nice radio after getting back to working order. They had some issues with diodes I replaced 12 in mine but it made a big difference in how it functioned as they were intermittent. I purchased about 50 of those diodes when I thought I was going to keep it so now I have them if one comes in for repairs. I think you will like the rig.
