Kenwood TS-770E Dual band multi-mode,given to me by a good friend last weekend as he threw it in for free when i bought x2 other radio's off him,he said he got it from a sale a few months ago but was untested as he had no power lead for it.

Today i made a home brew 240v mains lead for it & connected it up & it came to life! :D
full rx & tx & nice to listen to :D

It also looks a lot better after i cleaned it up as the controls were grimy & the front panel was also mucky,makes me wonder what some of these radio amateurs houses must look like on the inside :lol:

:lol: Our lass is OCD at cleaning and does my head in with it sometimes {bnghd} ,i would say it is near immaculate & we don't smoke either,no filthy slobs here pal ;).

But just for the record i meant some of these radio amateurs houses must be sh*t holes with the state of some of the radios i have come across over the years,i did not mean ALL radio amateurs must be like this but sometimes it does make you wonder just how many must live in hovels. :sick:

Ohh by the way,here is an abandoned radio amateur's house that my mate found in North Wales about 8 months ago...
