Old Yaesu FT 101EE and amp.

Post by Sinner » 05-24-2011 01:42 PM

I don't have an Amateur radio license, but I do happen to own a Yaesu FT101 EE and a FL 2100b. in great working condition. I love old radios and never could part with these.

Here is the Short Wave receiver I used for years, Listened to many a C2C show and listened to ART a few times on 80m back in the day. It has been a good ole receiver.

Here is my primitive citizen band communications I use out of the garage.
A few of us garage dwellers around here use this primitive means to communicate with one another.

Here is the antenna I use, it is a "Hustler Jam Ram jr 27" built in the late 70's. It works and looks beautiful, it will also make for an excellent 10 m antenna for the Yaesu FT 101 when ever I take the general ham exam.
I could have it higher but the weather here has been crazy, we had almost half our town damaged buy a tornado Sunday.
So I have it lowered on the home made telescopic mass. I dont want to wreck this beauty.

You are seriously set up Sinner, looks awesome! I love old radios but only have a few, and no ham radios, just antique FM ones. I think that may change soon, I need more "junk" (not my word for it) around the house lol!

I am interested in any old radio including the FM. I want to make the jump from CB to Ham though pretty bad.
We do have a good time on CB around here, there are only maybe a dozen of us in the whole county and we have a few beers and joke around. It is nice cause when I am alone in the garage I am not really alone, just key the ole mic and maybe someone is doing the same.

Yes Fan, we all need more "Junk" hehe. one of life's pleasures.

Is that aAstatic D-104 Microphone?:)

I had one of those. The last mic I had was a Turner super sidekick. It had a nice ping when ya keyed it.

Man. Must have been 30 years gone by now.

Hey Ben, yep, you are correct, D104. A few of us are at the age where we long for nostalgia of our youth so we decided to get back on the air. Corny as hell but really fun. I guess we are going backwards.
I owned a Super Sidekick when I was young also, them things are worth money now.

Maybe it will make a comeback. But probably not. Those were my teen years.:cool:

Nope, no comeback, CB is dead. But I read there are more Hams than ever before surprisingly.
