    Very cool. I see the LOVE poster, where's the PEACE poster? :supergrin:

    I've still got my D-104 Golden Eagle boxed up in the closet. I'll pull it out and put it to use one of these years.

    That teleprinter reminds me of the days when TELEX was the big thing in printed communications internationally.

    I can't quite make out the poster on the wall -- does it say "PDQ High"?

    The room was shared with my wife (professional musician). The poster is for PDQ Bach Web Site Also hard to see is a coat hanger wire antenna in the back of the 2-meter rig.
