W7NPA'S Radio Page

Hello, my name is Mike Heltborg W7NPA

Ever since I was a small boy I have been interested in antiques. When I got my ham radio license this interest just carried over into my new hobby. When I discovered Fair Radio Surplus I ordered a Wireless Set # 19 Mk III set, it came with all the accessories for $47.95. This radio was one of my early novice stations, unfortunately I don't have this radio now. I did find a Wireless Set # 19 Mk II set, In my quest for missing accessories for this radio I came across Bob's VE3BDB web site. Here are some of the radios that I have in my collection. Click on any of the radio model #'s for photos and details. I have since added several new radios to my collection, including the a PRC-174 HF manpack radio. This is the radio in the two photos on my home page..

I have expanded my interests from just Military Radios past to the present to also include Military Vehicles. Thats why there are pages on my mil vehicle and also photos of mil vehicles that I have taken.

Enjoy, Mike W7NPA
