When I got my ham license in 1967 my buddy had a Drake TR3 . I thought it was the coolest radio around. Now 45 years later I have a collection of restored and original Drake Ham radios. I always wanted to know more about the Drake company from Ohio . A must read for collectors . Mike N4VG ex WB4GTM

Anyone who is a Drake collector should have this book. I highly recommend this piece of Drake history, from beginning to end, along with the modifications and "fix-its". I have 32 pieces of Drake equipment and I commend Mr. Loughmiller for writing a book that brings all Drake collectors together. Thank you John de Ron, WA6YOU

Excellent cataloging of some of the history and people who made Drake one of the most respected names in US made Amateur radio products. A must have for Drake enthusiast.73, WA4AOS dit dit
