While more modern than most of my Boatanchor gear, this still qualifiers because, although there is a tremndous amount of solid-state/transistors in it, the RT-618B transceiver portion still uses two tubes, and the AM-3007A amplifer uses two tubes. Besides, comined the unit weighs over 150 pounds, a "boatanchor" by most anyones definition. This radio uses direct readout frequency selection and is capable of running AM/CWand SSB. This unit also runs off 115vac or 28vdc. I've just recently gotten this rig back on the air and it's doing fine.
