|An "original" paraset tunes such
a large range that it is hard to tune into a CW signal on a crowded band.
So much so that it is as good as pointless trying to use the same tuning
range to Rx amateur stations. So my paraset only covers part of the 80m band.
This gives a really slow tuning rate and makes it a delight to use.
G4VSZ did have a hand in making this
as he prepared all the laser cutting drawings which is why the front panel
is so exactly like the original to make little difference. In actual fact
I do not know where any difference are !!!!
Paraset.......transistor/transistor version. Uses 6 devices, two of which
are fitted inside each valve can. So it looks like the real thing or very
This TT Paraset will of course work off
12v and draws very little current.
For those who look close with zoom they
will see it is bandspread making contacts easy on 80 as it only covers 3.5
to 3.6 with a small overlap each end.
