Novice class shack

This is the first station I put together on a small desk in my teenage bedroom when I received my WN4HQW Novice class license in 1962.

It had an Ameco AC-1 15W transmitter and my maternal grandfather's Hallicrafters S-41G "Skyrider Jr." receiver with a dial where the 80M band was only ½" wide! Other bands were even smaller. The fine-tuning knob helped a bit, but I was lucky to pick out individual CW stations on that receiver.
