Thank you for visiting NoobowSystems. I inquired about HC-62 at one of the SNS communitys where many tube receiver enthusiasts belong -- and obtained no info.
I'll notify you if I find something.

Thanks again;

Thank you for the complimentary manual - Hallicrafters S-20R receiver. I am restoring one, and this is a big help. I was in Japan 1962 & 1969 with US Navy. Enjoyed country and people very much, as everybody was friendly, no matter where I was.

I need an instruction book for a MYKIT 200 educational electronic kit (it is also badged Galkken). I have had the kit since it was new in the 1970's-but lost the instructions.

Thanks for the great information!

I couldn't stop laughing on the part you described killing TR, I know that feeling, I did too (not just once).
I enjoyed your passion to give soecond life very much. Those electronics you are fixing born/produced with the purpose, l could hear their thanking to you to have their job back.

Having just resurrected one of the Allied 2515A's, I wonder if you might have the alignment procedure about. Considering it's price in 1970, it provided a fairly good value for the dollar, I suspect. Trio-Kenwood certainly came a long way.

Thank you for visiting NoobowSystems, and I apologize my slow (almost dead...) response.

Sorry, have no idea. If your unit is found in your country most likely it is localized to fit to your country.

Please find my direct email reply to you.
BYW I went to Dayton just to see XB-70 Valkyrie last year. I failed because I didn't know it was stored in a special hander, and the bus ticker to the hanger was sold out when I realized.... :-< I need to visit again.

For C16, use 18pF instead of original 22pF. This brings you to the US-Euro FM band. You can add a simple amplifier if you need more power but observe the regulation in your country. I cannot give you a detail of how to build one - sorry.

Thanks again everybody!

Am currently in Japan doing training and came upon your kits in a local shop. I am really impressed with how much can be purchased here!

I have just purchased your TW-172D FM transmitter kit in hopes of changing the output to the North American FM range 88-108 and possibly boosting the output to greater than 10M. I am looking at transmitting X-Mas music to passer-bys during our holiday season. Although the info included in the kit is not English, I am sure one of my engineers can help me in translation. Any additional info would also be greatly appreciated!

Thanks again for everything and I hope to see your products on the Canadian shelves in the near future! Great job by all involved!

I am interested in contacting the Marushichi Corporation you mentioned in your article about the amplifier for your headset. I tried searching for them on the web, but had no luck. Could you give me their website address, physical address or telephone number? I would really appreciate it. Great site by the way!

I used Sony ICF-5900W in the mid'70 when I started in SWL. I never know the set was so popular then and attracted such attention until today. The tuning was unique although without digital readout. I got almost all stations from the world. The portable lasted me nearly a decade before I went on with other Sony receiver. Currently I am using ICF-SW100. What a change during last 30 years!
