Well, I appreciate the idea....sounds like fun. But, I remember I was very happy when I could put the crystals away and use the VFO. it wasn't much a VFO either (VF-1) but it gave me freedom! Yea, I remember those days, but I also remember that there were three novices in a 60 mile radius of me on 40 that had the same exact crystal. Talk about QRM.
I appreciate the idea but ....Naw!
Have you guys noticed how much nastalgia there is in ham radio today. Old rigs, old times, etc. etc. I enjoy it...and I love the smell of burning tubes....but I really don't want to go back except to tinker.
Flame suit on....

In our day and age it seems that Common Sense is in short supply. If you don't have any Common Sense - get some Common Sense and use it. If you can't find any Common Sense, ask for help from somebody who has some Common Sense. Is Common Sense devine?
