This is one of my all
time favorite receivers: the
Collins 51S-1. A wonderful, solid,
day-in/day-out kind of workhorse that served so many people so well. It
isn't really the best
in any category... it just solidly, consistently, carries on with its job,
always doing it well. I love mine. I have the matching speaker, and will put
both in the photograph.
Here's another favorite: the
receiver. I can't say enough good things about this receiver either. Mine is
in a LOT
better than this one... I guess I'll have to put
the top of the list to replace with a picture of the real thing. Mine works
great as well.
4:1 vernier w/solid metal knob, & 200Hz CW, 2.2kHz SSB, & 6kHz AM filters.
