The James Millen Society

Dave Hollander, N7RK


Dave at his station during the 1995 Straight Key Night (SKN).  The HRO-5TA1 he is using belonged to his elmer W6BAM who became a silent key a few years ago at age 98. W6BAM was first licensed in 1926 and had already been playing with radio for almost 40 years when I first met him in 1963. He bought the HRO-5TAI upon returning from WWII and that was his only receiver up into the early 1990's.

To the left of the HRO is a National RAO-7 and on top of that receiver is a Hallicrafters SX-28. The other radios are a 1936 RCA ACR-175 and a Meissner Signal Drifter (Shifter) which was what Dave was transmitting on during SKN. He has several 1930's RCA receivers also. They are neat radios and not seen often.  Behind him you can see a couple of Howard's, an RME84 and a Swan 500CX.
