For Trade or Sale (prefer trade)

One each only    Wouff Hong.

The wouff Hong is restored and working on all bands (does not include
WARC frequencies).
Full output.    This is one of the earlier models made, thus the
sensitivity is fantastic.
It is somewhat heavy as the older models tended to be built better and
was not solid state.
I believe this is a 1956 model, but not sure (it has the double
horizontal straps).

Due to its age, it is being sold as-is.  But it is working and in good
order.
I think any owner would be proud to display this as a center piece for
their collection.
However it still can be used fully for its original intended purposed.
There is probably more need for a working Wouff Hong now, than any time
in Ham Radio.

I have actively used the Wouff Hong and have testimonial letters
attributing to its fine results.
(Due to current laws, it is sold only as an "entertainment device" and
no claims are made herein)

Will entertain bids over $1000 or take interesting items in trade.
(This is the model made in Newington, Connecticut - before incentive
licensing)

 Will not sell to unlicensed party.  This model was written up in QST in
the very early fifties.
I think it was an article by W1IOU,  Larsen Wrapp.  Please check it out.

Respectfully Submitted,

P.S. You pay shipping and insurance

Would anyone know the mod to get this thing going on 160M? I have a '30's
version that I would like to put on there. I think it's got something to do
with adding extra inductance to it's coils. Also, would 160M coils from a
BC-610 work on this model?
I know of a fellow or two that had it done to his '50's vintage model. I have
one I currently use on amplitude compandered sideband with a homebrew adapter.
I use a B&W product detector I rigged up to it's two IF's. I use it strictly on
75 meter phone (I know it's bandwidth is rather wide)
Old H.P. Maxim really know his stuff when he came out with this thing! It
sounds even better than a CE-100V!
