Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Ed, who writes:
I was in my corner bar last night in Philadelphia where “The Royal Tenennbaums” (2001) was playing on the projection screen. I wasn’t really watching it, but a scene showing a Heathkit HW-101 HF transceiver suddenly caught my eye. When I told my my drinking buddy, Richard, “That’s a Heathkit HW-101!” He called me a hopeless geek.
I’m not sure what tuner is on the shelf below it, but maybe a SWLing blog reader can identify it.
Great job spotting the HW-101, Ed!
Ed actually sent this tip to me several months ago, but it got buried in my drafts folder–sorry about that!
