The Fine Things are Always Hand Made
Folks - I have had this for years. I've asked before. We have a new, pretty active group here. What do you all think this might be. Speculate: what would the tube lineup be and why? I've long…Continue
Another collector on the forum asked if I had records on Ravinia Grande cabinets, how many and what sets...I haven't done that for any cabinet, but might be interesting to try with some of the…Continue

By the time I got back to the 1st IF, I had significantly reduced the generator output to keep the meter from going over - gain was excellent.

All - The moderators removed an account that was a bit "phishy" today. We try hard to keep these folks off the forum, but every once in awhile, one gets in. Please ignore/delete any questionable messages and let's keep on talking Scotts!

There are only 3 things that are AM only, so I verified each coil. While checking continuity on the oscillator coil, I happened to notice that the 1K resistor seemed to move a…Continue
