[Thursday: 3.2 miles; Today: 7.4 miles]

On our way back from Colorado we stopped and picked up an auction purchase in Kansas City.  It’s a Drake 2B receiver.  I’ve heard a lot about the Drake 2B, and this one was very cheap if I could wrangle a way not to pay shipping on it.  So I was very pleased to be able to pick it up.

I opened it up today and tested all of the tubes.  Everything checked out OK.  I sprayed De-Oxit on the switches and such.   I need to eventually swap out the old paper capacitors and do an alignment.   I’m sitting here listening to it now.
