Yaesu FT-101E 160-10 Meter AM/SSB at the San Clemente Base Station5 viewsThe original FT-101 series lasted for 8 years, beginning in late 1971 and lasting through 1979. This was the most popular and the most produced model by Yaesu in the FT-101 series. The FT-101 line at the San Clemente Base was purchased in 1976 by the original owner, a silent-key east-coast amateur operator. It is a "Late Model" version, with a serial # well above 20,501. I am the second owner of this line and am astounded at the care the original operator gave the equipment. There isn't a scratch on it! It has the Speech processor for SSB and the optional CW filter installed.
4-Second exposure shot of FT-101 Line4 viewsAside from the light from my computer LCD, the room was completely dark. Exposure was set for 4 seconds on the digital camera. The LCD provided enough light to cast shadows behind the radio setup.
