Re: Easy? (was Re: AO-7 Predictability.)



Absolutely!

In the mid-1960's I owned a Johnson 6N2 that had a 5894 final for 150w
output AM/CW.  My receiver was a Clegg Interceptor-B (one of the first 6&2m
SSB receivers).  I worked over 500-miles from Jackson, Michigan using an
8over8 skelton-slot yagi at 60-feet.  In 1967 I bought a Heath SB-110 for
6m-SSB.
