Breakthrough Rig!

Yaesu FT-101, Desktop Shortwave Transceiver

The FT-101 was the first HF transceiver to have it all the "options" built in: -- AC power supply -- DC power supply -- Crystal Callibrator -- Noise Blanker -- Crystal Frequency Control -- VOX... Adding these to a Drake, Swan or other brand could add 350 to 400 dollars to its price. The original FT-101 is a good rig. It's only shortcoming was the average (for the time) receiver, but even that was OK in under normal conditions.
