I hate to but I am selling my Drake R8B. The reputation of this radio for being a very worthy DXing machine is well known. The R8B is rated as one of the very best implementations of Sync lock!

It has a VHF converter but I have never used it. The previous owner (I am the second owner) said the converter worked just fine.
Again, just a great radio! In great shape. Sorry, no external speaker.
I will be happy to email a few photos to any serious buyer. I am asking $800.00 for it.

73,
Long live Pirate Radio,
Thanks,
Olddxer

Try to down size so I am selling my much loved NRD-515 with matching speaker.
The radio is fully functional with some scrapes nicks and dings reflective its age.

Filters in the radio:
6 kHz (am)
3 kHz (SSB)
Collins 526-9694-010 9 kHz (wide AM)
Collins 526-9690-010 Unknow bandwidth probably a .5 kHz for CW reception
The Kiwi audio mode has been installed

Asking $800 if you are interested I might come down a bid.

Photos are available to any serious would be buyer.

Many Thanks,
Olddxer

General Radio Discussion / When do you listen?
« on: December 16, 2019, 1530 UTC »
I am just wondering when folks listen for pirates. It seems there are a few that might monitor almost 24 hr a day. I am sure that many that have jobs and can not listen at 8-5 during the week. Others may have part time jobs or are retired.

0001z-0600z
0601z-1200z
1201z-1800z
1801z-0000z

So, how about specifying the time frame that you most often listen. Feel free to break the times into smaller increments if you like. If you use automation to montior during one time slot and live during another that would be helpful as well.

Thanks

Funny you should mention the Haitians. Here's what Commissioner Starks had to say...
