      The Blue Racer!
      I have several bugs in my collection no question my 2 Blue Racers are my faves. The first Blue Racer I got in 2003 is missing it's serial number label is about a '52 or '53 having "Blue Racer Standard and painted Black Crackle finish. My second Blue Racer I obtained a year ago is a Circa '54 Standard I obtained from my friends estate. I repainted the Gray Crackle base that the paint was falling off with Gray Hammertone Tremclad Paint the colour match was really great. Some Vibroplex's were finished in Hammertone Finish. I had my '54 Blue Racer plugged into 2 of my Radios I used for the Classic Exchange yesterday. I had the other Blue Racer plugged into my Heathkit Trio I put on the air Yesterday for the first time. DX-60, HG-10 and HR-10 no letters on mine! are the Heathkit trio. I had a lot of fun despite band conditions were poor. The bands pretty well closed on 80 and 40 after I got the 3 contacts on 80 on my FT-757GX. Unfortunately I did not make any contacts on 80 and 40 last nite after I got my dishes done to get the really great age multiplier from this early 60's vintage set up. what a difference going to the seperates after operating my FT-757GX and IC-751A I used my '54 Blue Racer on.
