I picked up a 40 year old Drake TR-7 from Missouri. It is in excellent condition and came with the Drake PS-7 power supply. In the auction description they said it put out 80 watts on CW, but I am getting over watts showing on my newly acquired Bird wattmeter.
Drake was founded in by Robert L. Drake, a young engineer with a significant background in radio design for major industry concerns. The company began as a manufacturer of low pass and high pass filters for the government and amateur radio market.
All your base are belong to us. Home What's New? It's a given that I would accumulate some old ham radio gear.
Drake made a great series of receivers over the years. The best were called the R-4 series and even today some 35 years after their first release they are very fine radios. They came configured for the Ham bands meters and always had extra crystal positions for shortwave frequencies or utility bands, etc.

As a licensed radio amateur for over 35 years call sign GW4JPC I am now in the fortunate position of being able to combine my hobby and profession by offering support to the owners of vintage valve communications equipment. I have a growing collection of British and American made communications receivers and transmitters dating back to the 's' plus many spare parts to fall back on. If you have an ageing piece of equipment that you feel deserves a new lease of life, then I am able to help with repairs and refurbishment that will not break the bank.
Did you know that inDrake radio-jamming devices were used successfully by the US Army during the Normandy invasion and beyond? Founded in by Robert L. Drake, Drake began developing communications equipment for both Government and Amateur radio markets.
These are very common transceivers and are readily available on the used market. This particular unit has an interesting history. I picked it up at the Charlotte hamfest.
