Default What was your first Radio?

My first radio was a Heathquit oops no, a Heathkit GD47 on 26.995 mhz, red flag I think. My second radio was a Heathkit GD19 on the 53.3 mhz ham band. It was a real step up from the GD47. I think the price was $219.95. In those days (1967) a simple 4 channel Kraft was around $400. Think about what price a radio would be today in 1967 dollars. Things have sure changed for the better.
