I said Ive owned one, that is past tense.

I liked the phasing rigs so much I used them to drive transverters for 
VHF/UHF as well as one on 160M since the 100V didnt cover it at the time; I 
later found the 160 kit.

The Lakeshore was a II model, not a B. I still have the Hetrodyning VFO 
which will be restored and used in a vintage AM station. You wouldnt happen 
to know of a source for the dial scale? Mine is a bit rough after the 
plastic face plate disintegrated.

Since AM was still popular on VHF/UHF well into the 70's they were an easy 
way to get a decent signal and driving a KW linear on all modes.

I sold all that gear off in the late 80's when I succumbed to a HF SS xcvr 
for the main HF station and to drive the transverters.
I still use the Hallicrafters (much modified in the RX path) HA-2 and HA-6 
to drive 1500W amps; cant kill the 5894's and they are so much more linear 
than a SS brick.
