Hallicrafters SX-110 factory mod (Mark 1A). Does anyone recognize this?

This SX-110 just came in from eBay and I was surprised by what looks like a
factory mod. The tube is a 6AK6. Looks like a crystal holder on the side
and a pot on the top. 4 wires come out of the box. Power (switched) and
ground. One goes to the Antenna terminal, and the 4th wire is for the
filament. Does anyone know whazzup with this?

I believe I was reading this forum and remembering a guy that offered boat
anchor repair (with considerable experience).



I cant seem to find that article now.



Anyone know who is really good at Boat Anchor repair?



Item is Sideband Engineers SB-36 from 1972. Uses FETs, Bi-polar transistors
and 6 vacuum tubes. I have the transceiver documentation and is is mostly
is good/complete.



Thx,



Alan

I have a R-1051B / URR as seen he







The Minuteman missile silo control room seen below is equipped with a radio
that appears very similar, but its definitely not the same radio.



Any idea what it might be?

Starting an R390 Non-A Rebuild

Wondering if perhaps Ive contracted a slight case of Collins Collector
Disease. First signs of it occured this summer when I purchased my first
Grey Box, a broke 30L-1 on eBay. The guy said it had melted tubes and thats
all he knew about it. I took a chance and bought it. Cleaned it out, threw
some tubes and parts at it and got it going. At least it works into the
dummy load. I havent actually used it on the air yet but it just looks so
elegant and cool sitting on the desk....

Kenwood TS-520SE: High Grid Bias and Low Power Output

Posted: 08 Mar 2017 10:25 AM PST
http://forums.qrz.com/index.php?thre...output.555995/

Hi everyone,



Well, my trusty Kenwood TS-520SE decided to start giving me problems.
Essentially, receive is fine but when transmitting CW, the power output is
~ 13W. When tuning up the transmitter, the grid bias will not go below
70mA to the specified 60mA. It will only go 70mA and up when adjusting the
bias control.



I checked the HV (on the TS-520SEs meter) when transmitting CW and its ~
800V. I checked cathode resistors R2 and R3 (out of circuit) on the final
power amplifier board...
