Hi Jack,

Nice GT-550!

Yes I got quite addicted while cleaning out storage about 8 years ago.  Restored about 90 radios before shifting back to modern gear.  
Building stuff is still my favorite.

I can't tell you how much the uBITX reminds me of my SBE SB-33 (SF-1) like the one on my QRZ page with the matching linear.

Loved looking at your old gear on QRZ. I saw the Galaxy V; just sold my old GT-550:

Big mistake...

QRZ has changed their link policy so you’ll have to type in my call sign for now.

Happy New Year to all.

Received mine on the 24th (lucky I ordered on the 10th).

Got my case yesterday late afternoon and finished the case prep before turning in.

Wired up this morning. It’s alive!!!
First contact 600 Miles - 59 report.

See top of my QRZ page for pictures.

Off to build a Mic pre-amp with Mic Gain control. Then work on paddle interface.
