Ernie Hite's De Forest 15 Panel Unit Receiving Set, circa 1919-1921
by Robert Lozier, KD4HSH
Ernie's passion was in collecting vintage wireless gear from 1915 to about 1928. The majority of his items are in museum quality condition. Now that
Ernie Hite, WB4KFL,
is a Silent Key, it is time for his gear to pass on to others. That will happen in the form of a fabulous auction on Thursday, March 25th, 2010 at the great regional conference of the Carolinas Chapter of the AWA in Charlotte, NC. You can find out all about it by going to: www.cc-awa.org/ and follow the links to the conference pages.
The photos below represent only a part of his fabulous collection. Most of what you see will be in the auction. The family has only retained a few sets for sentimental reasons.
