Re: definition and minimum weight of "heavy metal."
Many vintage Heavy Metal units contain some plastic and wood in
addition to metal! Thus, may I include the weight of my receiver's
large horizontal loop antenna and its coil form, which is our house
itself? If so, I hereby submit the following heavy metal receiver:
2 lbs: 1951 Meissner 3-tube regenerative receiver
160,000 lbs: loop wire + loop coil form
160,002 lbs total
Aside from the Meissner, inside this "coil form" is a TMC transmitter
and receiver system with rooftop TMC ATS-2 vertical.
