Look great, I like the Everest "ice cap" ribbon cover. :)
Yes, those everests look quite unique!
Impressive machine, with interesting characters and typeface. Nice!
Very nice discovery! Of course, these are completely impossible to find over here in the USA, so it's great to see one. Congrats!
Thank you, I don't even know if these were ever exported to the US, and are far less common than Olivettis here in Italy too!
I always wanted to become a ham radio operator, but that's almost impossible in my country (Mexico) due to bureaucracy. xDThat machine looks awesome. Specially because it has three paper holders. xD
I'm also a radio amateur! I operate in CW-QRP with a manual key only. I don't like digital QSO (PSK31 or other digital modulations), and I love the irregular rhythm of the vertical key, like I love the irregular rhythm when I use my typewriters. However, I never used a typewriter for my QSL cards, in this case I prefer a good pen. All the best from Como, Italy! 73 de IW2NZRPS: vedo il tuo blog scritto in inglese, ti ringrazio in ogni caso per il tuo commento in italiano.
Ciao, io nonostante i buoni propositi per imparare il CW, non ho ancora raggiunto un livello accettabile, mi manca la costanza nell'allenamento :).Attività ne faccio poca e prevalentemente in hf SSB. Questo sabato sera sarò con gli amici della sezione ARI Vercelli IQ1BD per il contest uba. Non amo particolarmente i contest ma sono un'occasione per fare radio in compagnia.73 de IU1CZF
