It weighs in at 600, lbs, draws 3100 watts at full power on phone, and the price ???? A mere $3,850. In '53, the average wage was $4,000.00/year and the average car cost $1,650.00Considering today 25K is poverty level income, kinda looks like a good deal to me.KV8X-------Original Message----- --From: k8mhz@k8mhz. comDate: 12/28/07 15:07:46Subject: [WestMichiganHams] World's most expensive ham radio?
