Circa 1960 VIKING RANGER
trIt will take a radio guy with far more knowledge on the evolution of amateur radio to determine the age of the Viking Ranger . When I entered the fraternity in the early 1970's, there were still a number of hams who were using the "Viking." I wish I were financially able to start a museum for some of these classic rigs. I can't even begin to recall all the radios I have owned over my lifetime. I do remember my very first ham transmitter. It was an Eico 723 CW. For extra dollars, one could add a modulator to that Eico. I also had a Swan 350 which I procured back in the late 70's or early 80's from a ham buddy, Doug Mertz, K2ITX.
