EXPERIMENTAL TELEVISION RECEIVER
Looking towards the future, Radio Retailing checks out what's on the experimental airwaves in 1938 using a home-brew, 6 foot tall monster TV receiver with enough exposed high voltage wiring to make Heathkit afficionados salivate! As the magazine states, they dont want to be caught napping when "television finally breaks commercially". Click on the photo at left to check out this monster!
KLM 2M-16LBX 2 METER ANTENNA
These antennas seem to show up regularly on the used market. I bought mine second-hand over 12 years ago, and luckily it came with the manual! I have seen quite a few postings on the net where someone has picked one up, but cannot find assembly instructions anywhere as KLM has long gone out of ham antenna business. Here is a scan of the assembly manual. The image quality isn't the greatest, but it's good enough to help get your KLM 2M-16LBX back on the air! Click on the image at left to see the manual.
