Well not yet but I have successfully obtained a radio through the vast expanse that is ebay. I was able to get my hands on a Hammarlund HQ 100A. This lovely boat anchor has been loving refurbished by another who knows a heck of a lot more than I do about tube radios. My next task will be purchasing 100 feet of 12 gauge wire to make a dipole antenna. This will be placed and camouflaged on my roof which is considerable higher than that of the other houses in the area. The pattern I will be aiming for will be an inverted "V". Supremely happy that I finally got my hands on a restored Hammarlund.
