Two high end receivers from the late 1940s.

Both cover AM.
FM.
And everything in between.

Each 75 pounds.

Hence the thick plywood shelves they sit on.

Freshly restored.

I take them through their paces.

Siemens E311e HF Receiver
Peter Stanford


Published on Mar 25, 2016
This is a Siemens E311e HF receiver as manufactured in the 1960-70's. Used a lot in ground and maritime radio. It was an excellent performer for its time. Allowing any frequency to be set to within +/-50Hz. Stability was due to temperature control of critical oscillators. This example was restored at VK4GXC, Ovens needed repair, some cosmetic work and a full realignment returned the unit back to fully operational condition.

PowerFilm F15-1200 Portable Solar Power for Ham Radio
OH8STN


Published on Oct 8, 2017
In this video, we will have a very close look at the PowerFilm F15-1200 Solar panel, then field-test it along with the DIY 10Ah lithium iron phosphate battery pack. Finally, we'll also discuss the pros and cons of the PowerFilm panels over other variants, and give you some tips on getting the most out of this lightweight portable panel.

Previous episodes in this series:
- Solar powered gokit: https://youtu.be/1_-Q0ORT93M
- 10Ah Battery Pack LiFePO4: https://youtu.be/SJGKuriGRok
- QRP Battery pack Li-Ion: https://youtu.be/Fdjn1nSrkkY

Episode notes for the PowerFilm F15-1200 can be found here:
You can also find me at: http://oh8stn.org/blog/2017/06/16/por...
The introduction the the Portable Power for ham radio series can be found here. Its a great read, which goes into the background work and methodology that went into putting the entire series together: http://oh8stn.org/blog/2017/07/05/man...

In the third video in this series, we will build a 5Ah lithium iron phosphate battery pack based on A123 cells. That fact will be especially interesting for the SOTA operators, qrp campers & hikers, looking for a lightweight renewable power source for the summit or the trail.

Another "on the road" video, once again driving down to the Belton HamExpo, the only Hamfest in Texas to support 2 shows each year. This is a great tailgate event that is enjoyed by many in this area.

On this trip, I get to catch up with a few guys from the MJARS club on their newly updated 220MHz BridgeCom Repeater, and I also have a few QSOs on the Texas Nexus WIRESx room with Yaesu System Fusion.
