Could someone tell me the first available years for federal 173 and 174 beacons?
Thanks in advance.

I'm pretty sure the 173's came out in the very early '60's, the 174 more towards '64, '65. I've got a positive source I can check if I can get on the site without catching "something"!! Every time I've gone there in the past couple years my AVG goes nuts!!!

I just tried the site and ALL of my security systems lit up like a Christmas tree!! I don't remember if I forwarded the link to Paul a couple years ago or not (before all the problems with the site).
