!959 Sx-62 receiver, !959 HT-37 Transmitter, (2) R-48 speakers in series, 1957 Astatic voice-activated Microphone. I restored them all about a decade ago and have been using them several times a week ever since. I have a 59 foot dipole antenna in the backyard about 12 feet off the ground that picks up pretty good. The HT-37 transmitter puts out about 125 watts on sideband and 35 watts on AM.
For everybody who is upset at the internet censorship of people like Alex Jones- It hasn't affected me. I've listened to him on shortwave since 1995. I much prefer listening to him than watching him anyway:) He was the first broadcast I picked up on the very first antique radio I restored (which I still have- the 1935 Silvertone on top of the Zenith Black Dial Console). I listen to stations from all over the world regularly along with Haam and government broadcasts. I will upload later in the day when more bands are active.
a 1940 11 tube and a 1941 10 tube high-end consoles with wave-magnet internal antennas. 11 tube has a 12" speaker. 10 tube has a 15". Both completely restored with n.o.s. parts, and correct date-coded Zenith tubes. These were the caddilacs of their time. They costed as much as a low-optioned new Ford!

Jesse just recently turned 90! I have his first record. I will upload it soon. He is from just a few mountains away from my ancestral lands. That song holds a special place in my heart. It was a favorite of my Grandmother. I have a printed copy of it from 1832. Scholars believe it to be much older. The Acoustical Labyrinth is a top of the line console With a three chambered, tuned, ported bass-reflex enclosure, 12- all metal tubes, automatic tuning ( driven by 24 individually adjustable solenoids) with optional wireless remote control; this was the Caddillac of the 1930's. Mahogany Cabinet.
She served me for over 20 years so now she's getting a makeover. I'm stripping the cabinet and replacing the power transformer and cleaning up the wiring, replacing capacitors, rebuilding the adjustable Automatic Volume Control etc.
