My first HF rig...1976

Kenwood TS-520, Desktop Shortwave Transceiver

This rig is a very nice rig to "get into the hobby with" Today you find them on local fleemarkets for around $ 275-300. This is a good deal, since you also can hook a 2m transverter to it, and use it as a Tech. Had lots of fun with mine :-) Lars
