This page is in memory of Silent Key Charles Josey K4LNL, for his widow, Jo Ann K4LHO. Their house is in Macon, Georgia. Jo Ann has asked me to sell off Charles' beloved radio equipment. The last five or so years of his life, this equipment became his world. He built and maintained a commercial short-wave broadcasting station, still in operation, using mostly TMC equipment. It is licensed by the FCC as WWBS on 11.91 MHz at a power of 50 kW AM. People come from miles around to look at the craftsmanship in this hand-built station. Here are pictures of some of the equipment he had around his house.
