A Family Affair -
The R.L. Drake Story

By John Loughmiller KB9AT.
Here is the behind-the-scenes story of the famous R.L. Drake Company, focusing on the glory days, when Drake was king in amateur radio. Every ham and SWL of the era knew R.L. Drake from the outside, but now the inside story of this incredibly interesting company is told. This book also includes useful circuits and modifications and adjustments for many Drake radios. Over 300 pages! 2000. We highly recommend this book as an entertaining read and a great technical reference. The Appendices include famous Drake ads, cool Drake stations from around the world and Drake grading guide. The January 2001 QST features a complete review on page 35.
