I have my grand father’s old Sailor brand radio gear from his old sail boat it is two piece system transmitter and receiver they are heavy green metal cases, I know it’s some kind of ham rig as my grandfather sailed his 52 foot boat around the world and my father would stay in touch with him, I can remember what a big deal it was to be able to talk to him in the south pacific. Does anyone know anything about this gear it still works I need to know if it’s worth hanging on to.

I have a buddy who is or was a communications expert in desert storm he says that ham radio's are the only devices that will not fail if we are ever attacked with a EMP bomb, so . . . i guess if it was me I would make sure your radio works and by God keep it for your future or your kids if you have any.

You are right about that they are tube sets I have lots of extra tubes and have added a 1KW amplifier that will get the signal out. I have joined a ham club and I am working on getting licensed.
