Not me. I like to do casual DXing and RTTY contesting.

I moved North From Georgia to get married. About the camera, I've never seen anything like that. Thanks for sharing it. It would be interesting to see how it's used.

I will put up a copy of the manual. Also, some better pictures of the complete assembly. The shutter assembly is part of the camera. The shutter screen had come loose from the shutter actuater assembly. It is a very simple box. I still need to find the air bulb that fits onto the assembly to actuate the shutter.

I've been a ham since I was 15. I won my high school science fair by building a 10-meter (band) radio telescope and monitoring solar radio noise, plotting it against sunspot counts. A great way to merge the two hobbies.

Many moons ago when I was into moonbounce (EME) on 432 MHz I use to point my antenna array towards the sun, Jupiter, and Cygnus X-1 and note the noise level increase. In fact I often used the "sun noise" to check and calibrate my system.

And to the OP, sorry for hijacking your thread. But I thought it looked like a CW keyer too. :)

Many of you were hams, I was wondering if any of you were ever coilers? I built my first Tesla Coil when I was in high school beginning with a 15000 volt Franceformer and a 1964 copy of Popular Electronics.

I built my first high voltage transformer coil by mistake. Forgot to leave a gap at the begining and end of the secondary on a toroid. When I powered it up it gave off this blue corona. Really beautiful looking, but we were all afraid to touch it. I am sure sooooonnnnn the moderator is going to remind us what this section is all about :rules: :4

it was about one of these. Here's mine. The film holders are all metal, but the camera back is wood. Thanks to Tim(53) I now have a extra full 3 set of film holders to pass on. The ones in the picture are original to this camera.

I would certainly like one of those squeeze bulbs. That is the only thing missing on mine.

LOLOLOL, it's missing on mine too! Look at it, it's flat as a flitter and solid as a rock. The rubber had flattened out over time and taken the imprint of anything touching it. It's solid and hard. I'm keeping it because, well it's original, and a rather funny degradation.

I might have to make something. All it does is lift up on the shutter actuator. wonder if there is an aftermarket device considering this same shutter device was used on many cameras.

The bulb is still pretty good on mine. However there is a small expanding piece at the actuator end that is gone.
