Vintage Ham Radio stuff, Hallicrafters, Schlitz...

This isn't much of a blog post, but I wanted to put these things out there for those of you who also love old ham radio related stuff like me. A good friend, Joe (who owns Dit & Dash), found this old unused 1964 Hallicrafters Log Book and sent it to me. Having had my license since 1974, I remember the paper logs and the requirement to log everything, including tune up and test transmissions. I took a few pics of it, it really brings back fond memories.

Next, here's an old 1952 Schlitz beer advertisement, featuring a rendering of a typical 1950's hamshack. This pretty cool, I'm gonna try to turn this into a poster for my hamshack Studio B with my vintage gear.

Thanks to Joe over at Dit & Dash. Here's his Facebook link if you do Facebook:
