I have the 6514,so my question is how does the 6514 compare with the 6515 Super Fringe. I've considered buying one,but thought I'd ask if any difference in performance? I'm very impressed with the 6514,it's great on both bands. Thanks!

I guess you'd need to find out from someone who owns both. I have a 6515 and can tell you it's an excellent performer. Since they are each 8 Transistor models, my assumption would be that their performances would be fairly equal, although the 6515 seems to have a longer ferrite coil, which might give it an advantage.

Here are my 6515 and 6506 chassis. compare the antenna length to your model.

I see what you mean. That's quite an antenna. Is that the original battery tube? The 6514 has decent reception. I was able to copy both sides of a cw QSO on 80M one time. With just the built in antenna. That antenna looks larger than mine,but I'll have to check.

Yes, all original except for the Electrolytic's and volume control.

Hey Fifties, what did you use to replace the volume control in the 6515? I have one of these with a worn out volume control and can’t find a new one online.

This is why God invented junk boxes, LOL! I honestly can't remember beyond extracting one from a junked Transistor radio, that was similar in size and resistance.
