Stroll thru of the Kalamazoo Ham & antique Hamfest. Great deals of great antique radios & ham equipment. Not numerous purchasers. So, a great event if you were wanting to purchase, yet not so great for the vendors. I snagged a very nice Heathkit CW doubles terminal. Had one concerning 40 years back, while based at Vandenberg AFB, CA. Missed them, yet can never find one more clean operational collection. These worked best, plug & play. I intend to utilize them mostly on 40 meter band, 7.115 Mhz. Look for n6tlu calling CQ. Great deals of individuals going to obtain in front of the electronic camera this time around. I handed out 12 Hammared Ham glasses. Wished to do something various this time around. Everyone was pleasant. A terrific radio get-together.

Walk thru of the Kalamazoo Ham & antique Hamfest. Lots of great antique radios & ham gear. Unfortunately, not many buyers. So, a great event if you were looking to buy, but not so good for the sellers. I snagged a super nice Heathkit CW twins station. Had one about 40 years ago, while stationed at Vandenberg AFB, CA. Missed them, but could never locate another clean operational set. These worked perfect, plug & play. I plan to use them primarily on 40 meter band, 7.115Mhz. Look for n6tlu calling CQ. Lots of people willing to get in front of the camera this time. I handed out 12 Hammared Ham glasses. Wanted to do something different this time. Everyone was friendly. A great radio social event. If you have a chance to attend a Hamfest, I would highly recommend it. A good way to be introduced to the hobby. We need new blood!

Silver face Fender Guitar Champ gain enhancement Modification offered D-lab Electronics New life

Is your Champ suffering from low gain, unresponsive tone controls, well I have the answer. D-lab electronics can bring new life to your 70’s vintage Fender Champ or Vibro champ. A little fully reversible modification. The initial design was to keep the amp clean/quiet. Not sure why they decided to do this, but to appreciate the full capability of your Champ, I have the solution. My modification by itself will improve performance. However for ultimate performance, a complete capacitor replacement is recommended. So, send your Champ to my shop. I will ensure it is performing above original specifications.

New Test equipment at D-Lab Electronics DeVry Tube Radio analyzer Console

Yes, a cool new addition to D-Lab’s testing capabilities. This unit is very rare. I was very happy to acquire it. DeVry Model 16004. It has all the features required for Tube radio troubleshooting and repair. Back in the day, it was utilized for training future radio technicians. My guess is it was never offered for sale to the general public. I plan to feature it in upcoming videos. If you have any info/schematics/manuals/ History, please let me know. I am very honored to have this fine piece in my collection. Hope you enjoy!

2018 Vintage Electronics Expo Kalamazoo MI tour Tube radios D-Lab

Spent the weekend at the 2018 Vintage electronics expo with Marcia and Emi (shortwave girl) Had a great time with friends. Met some new ones that subscribe to my channel. Of course the regulars were there, giving me a bad time. Always a good way to spend the weekend. Many nice antique radios, record players, test equipment and Ham gear. I picked up a few new pieces of gear. Some real nice ones for repair and presentations for you to see. This year the attendance way way down. Everyone was disappointed. Please check out the club and see if you can make it next year. Bring some young ones, so they can experience the hobby. The big Detroit event is coming up January. See: Thevee.org for more info.
