Its going to be my daily driver ham receiver and because it would be sitting outside, I decided to no strip the old paint before the new. Actually thats not the case. I couldn't strip it! So here it is in all its poorly painted glory:

A very ambitious project. Congratulations on your NC-183. I prefer the original paint but I realize that in some cases it's just not possible to patch things up. I was fortunate in finding one in almost pristine condition. They're a great receiver. Enjoy it.

Best Regards,

Lee, W6UN

Very Cool Looking Radio Wyatt! Paint job looks ok to me. Are you going to have this radio on one of your shows sometime? I would be interested in seeing how they are operated. Kris

Hey Mr BoDidley,

I had to go to the east coast to see all of the NC 183 and the second picture looked like a bowl of cream of potato soup.

I gather it was from Photobucket from the looks of the image info. Why you make so big Pilgrim? You can resize with PB. May take some trial and error to get used to it. That's what these guys on dial up are complaining about. The bigger the picture, the longer the wait for it to down load. I can sympathize with them as I to was once a BOONIE and had to use a cup and string to talk to grama.

Take your time for their sake please.

Smile

I, like a dummy had one back in the early 80's and sold it. A 183D ? I don't remember but have kicked my own butt till black and puce since i got rid of it. Probably back about the early 90's. Had to get rid of all the heavy metal stuff because of health. No one to move it around or flip it upside down. DX-100B, NC-183D, 2 or 3 DX-60's, all the heavy iron stuff. I even had at one time a R390A. Needed lots of work and beyond my comprehension so I sold it to a guy in TX.

Now I don't have room for them anyway.

That would be awesome Wyatt. I hope to get a Ham radio some day and it would be nice to see how they are operated. Kris

Pshhh..... Who needs school................... cyclops


I get out at 2:05 Long time ago...


Spook,


This will be my workhorse receiver when I get my ham ticket. All I need now is a Heathkit DX100.

If I do see another, Ill let you know. I paid $30 for the one Ive got and I bet I could get another one for the same price.

2 o"clock? We had to go till 3:20 and started at 7:55. Whata bummer.
If you find one for that price, sure let me know. I don't wanna pay 200 to have it shipped though. jocolor

Just as a matter of interest, what is the serial number of your "183"?

As you probably know, it's a 3-digit number followed by a 4-digit number (located on the top of the chassis behind the accessory socket).

The 3-digit number is the Engineering Release and a rough guide to when it was produced in the years 1947-1952. I'm curious to find out how what the highest ER is -- which would indicate the last batch of 183's produced before the 183d's came on line.

Incidentally mine is 241 while the earlier ones are in the 202 range or lower.

Just out of curiousity.

Regards,

Lee, W6UN
