I have't updated this site for a long time but that doesn't mean i have lost my interest in radios. Since i last updated i have come by two of my favorite brand radios, a Collins 51j-4 receiver and a Collins KWM-2 Transceiver. Hopefully the start of a big collection in the future :).
Both had their fair share of faults to fix which i had a lot of help from the Collins group in america in fixing. Both operate well and i can here worldwide ham stations with my homemade dipole on a good day. I still however don't have my radio licence yet, i just haven't had the time with so much highschool work to do. So i don't know how the KWM-2 transmits yet but grade 12 for this year is almost over so i am hoping for a bit more time next year to play with them.
