Skeezix there's usually a few AR-88's for sale in Ontario so shipping wouldn't be too bad to you. I have 5 of them but shipping one from here would be expensive. An identical but cheaper radio is the CR-91. Identical in every way to the AR-88D except it's grey and AR-88's are black. I really do supply the world with parts. If you find a junker I probably have what you need to get it going.

I have HQ-170, SX-111, HR-10, and I supply RCA AR-88 parts to much of the world. I have to go with the RCA. They have genuine Hi-Fi audio (unlike MOST of the rigs of the era) and epitomize art deco styling. They are comparatively easy to find for between $100 and $500 and outperform nearly every other receiver in every way. Google it. Only problem is they weigh 110 pounds.
***UPDATE While I was typing this Skeezix posted. I agree with him re: audio. Hi Fi audio is fantastic. On my Ar-88D we like to listen to South American stations. The music, at least on a strong signal, sounds as good as local FM. I'm serious.

Actually a pretty good signal into Northern Canada this afternoon. The band is pretty noisy.

I gotta admit; he must have Miley Cyrus' publicist. With no career he still manages to get press.

Got them strong on a noisy band here. Always great to hear an old friend!

Nice signal on a noisy band. Nice to hear!
Merry Christmas to all!

Had lots of 10M repeaters in here yesterday. I worked a few guys in Dallas, Texas.

Hearing them in the noise in Northern Canada. Hearing OM ann with european accent of some sort; German? Russian? I dunno, hopefully they'll be on as the band builds in the west.

I can hear them in the noise in Northern Canada but not enough for sustained copy. Hopefully the band will build.

I can hear them about S-3 over S-2 noise in Northern Canada. Hopefully  they'll be around as the band picks up during the evening.

Is this a clear channel? I had some talking and music on the freq last nite, and even this morning. Since I'm at the far top end of the continent everything is south of me. If they have a clear channel I had them no problem but I suspect this wasn't the case.

I've still got all of the old original Maple Leaf Radio studio masters I'd be happy to contribute. I was planning on starting up again but the Bunneh bunch shut me down so I'd be happy to share them here.

Yup, got it pretty fair (S-3 to 5)  in Northern Canada. Thought it was one of the regulars until I heard the dog barking. Any ID's?
