There is nothing that gets me going like seeing old-school technology, especially older radios.
At the Every Blade of Grass blog, check out the radio transmitter room from the Battleship Iowa and marvel at what it took to have comms from HF to Milsat. According to drjim, the restoration of this hardware is an ongoing project, and it is just getting started. I look forward to seeing what other interesting objects will soon come into the light.
Thanks for sharing the pics, drjim...hope retirement is going well for you! ;-)
