Got a new HF rig!

Hey there! I apologize for not posting for so long, I was busy for the past few months so I haven’t be able to post as much as I would like to.

And, after a few months, I finally got myself my own HF radio transceiver, from a person named Mr
James Brooks, 9V1YC. He sold me a Kenwood TS-930 for S$550. Thanks a lot, Mr James! =)

This radio, as what Mr James says, “was (and still is) considered one of the best receivers ever
designed.” I guess, when I do use it, I will find out for myself if that is true or not. 😛

According to the technical specifications, this radio has a output power of 250W max for SSB and 80W max for AM modes.

Here is the radio on my desk:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now, I just need a proper antenna before I can send or receive anything. I guess, I will try to settle that in a week or two.

By the way, I’d like to thank a friend, Dylan for helping me take the radio back home. I wasn’t able to carry the 18.5KG mass that this radio had. >.<

Thanks Dylan! Wow… I didn’t expect to be up with a rig that fast. Thanks a lot to Mr James, Dylan, and also Mr Jeff, for sending out the offer to everyone! =)

Now, I have something more to talk about for next month’s presentation! I am feeling nervous though! 😛

I guess, when I do finally get the antenna system up, I would write an article! ^.^

Anyway, thanks for reading!
Joyce (9V1AN)
