Tom you made mention of "second only to the Drake" in an earlier post 
regarding receiver performance.  I would be interested in hearing about the 
Drake being used and how it's configured.  I have a very nice "C" line that 
I am planning to put on the air as soon as I make some receiver 
upgrades....Might just consider making it the 160/80 meter station if it can

be made that good....

I have one each of the receivers with the tube mixer and solid state mixer. 
I planned to use the tube mixer model as that seems to be what is 


I also would like to hear more about the venerable Drakes. I have my
original B-line from the early 1970's when I was in high school ! (Still
have my old 2-NT too)

73, Jamie
