Another TOS Prop to do, for my Ham Shack


#1

Picked this up on eBay from @TOSPhaser, grew on me after seeing them on the Set Tour. Just some sanding then install them in my Ham Shack. He recognized my name in the order and sent the 5 extra pusbuttons. VA2 UFP

Nice! I’ve really been wanting one of these but I couldn’t find the seller.

Actually the original peanut microphone was made by RCA. The one I have is Midland circa 1965, a crystal element, very clear on that tube AM 2 Meter transiever from the same timeframe. Today 2 Meter is FM. There are a handful of AM Nets across the US where these boat anchors as they are called are used. The crystals or rocks in the case cover the 2 meter band and are genuine US military.
