PARTS radio perfect for apocalypse readiness

PARTS radio perfect for apocalypse readiness

Radar hacker and radio restorer extraordinaire Greg Charvat made this Portable Amateur Radio Two-way Station (PARTS), fitting an entire HF radio setup into a vintage WW2 foot locker. The setup consists of an Icom IC-725 HF transciever, antenna tuner, custom power monitor, and battery, and can be run from wall power if available. Just the thing to complete that undead preparedness kit…

The second photo is of Greg operating the station during this year’s ARRL Field Day.
