Back on 2 February I was on 160 AM with the DX-100, talking to WA4PGI. At the end of our QSO we got a call from a station. I was at first confused -- was this station calling on SSB? Or was he calling on AM? Turns out that he was -- in a way -- on BOTH. K4DBK was -- I think -- running an old Collins KWS-1, the transmit side of the famous Gold Dust Twins. Aptly named: It was built in 1955. 1000 watts output. $2095.00 in 1955. Gold dust indeed.
The really interesting thing about this rig was that it put out CW, SSB and SSB plus the carrier. I think that was what we were hearing from K4DBK. FB.
Does anyone have an e-mail address for K4DBK? I'd like to drop him a line.
