In addition to being obsessed with broken computers, I’m also into radios and communications. I got my amateur technician class license a few years back, my callsign is KL1FI. Aside from a few forrays into 2M and 70CM I haven’t done much with it, mainly I’ve been pack-ratting equipment and keep intending to set up some kind of better rig when I have time/space for it.
I used to have some pictures of old radio junk on my former page (may still be accessible at http://www.tc.umn.edu/~emers089/radio.htm). However, I’ve since disposed of most of it, since it was either too old, too broken, or too bulky to do anything with. Sadly there wasn’t much interest in tube and crystal-controlled radios from the modern geek crowd. Below are a few samples of stuff I currently and formerly had:
My current projects involve installing a 70cm Ham radio in my car, listening to the entertaining traffic on the CB channels, and trying to remember how to program ARMER into my scanner.
