Transmitter in sad shape, but still works.
« on: March 22, 2014, 01:27:41 AM »
Another thread regarding metal 302s made me realize that I didn't have many shots of my metal non-dial "Western Union" 302.  As I was taking more shots of it for my pictorial inventory, I noticed it was matching dates except for the receiver element.  Then I noticed the transmitter was actually coming apart.  I swapped it out in a working 302, and by golly, it still works!  But still, I'll be looking for a 2-41 transmitter and receiver element for an F1.

The idea that a four-year degree is the only path to worthwhile knowledge is insane.

Hey, I recognize the blue paper!  :)

I like the WU number card.

Oops, sorry Bill, the flyer just happened to be laying on the only open spot on my desk!

Yeah, this phone is wired in a weird way too, I'll start another thread about that.

No need to be sorry!  Hope to see you there!
