This one is heavy. I haven't seen such storm in a long time. Okay, then something else. How my radio adventure started. Back in the sixties I was hit by a 'radio virus' it was incurable they said. And they were right. My first 'serious' radio was a Koyo with a real s-meter! Wow. Here started my SWL career. I made a long wire antenna about 10 m long. But the first stage was overdriven. Too much noise. Best reception with the telescope antenna.
First broadcast stations. But then I heard people talking, what was it? Ham radio. After a couple a years I needed a better receiver. Here it was... a Trio receiver. I was bitten twice, but now much more serious.
Since then I was hooked. After 50 years still listen to ham radio. The Trio receiver was a very nice one. I still love it.
