Although we cruised everywhere, the equipment was pretty old and barely adequate.

IMR54Rx and a Mackay TRF Rx.
Transmitters were IMR 51/53 ( 100 watts) and an STC450 200w DSB for R/T.
However, there was a really nice Hammarlund SX600 Rx for R/T SSB receiving.
The box in front of the typewriter was to enable us to change MF frequencies via a modified transmitter equipped with servo motors.
To change frequencies on HF, we had to run into the transmit room and do it manually.

Spent 4 great years there!
