LONG day. Left for the airport in Seattle at 4:30 AM. The driver got me
to the airport fine, and boarded fine - then sat at the gate for over an
hour after the door was closed. "Too much rain" is what the pilot said...
WTF? SEATTLE? TOO MUCH RAIN? He even sounded confused - the delay came
from the tower.



I brought the Howard E. Anthony laser-engraved photo plaque for his grave,
had shipped ahead to my kids tools to trim weeds and clean the grave (LONG

Hey Gang-

Thought I had this unit about finished but in last 2 days I have now poped
(2) 22 Ohm 1/2 watt plate resistors feeding V16, one of the 6146 mod tubes.
The main 8A AC fuse also has blown these 2 times with this resistor POP!



Just rewired that this am, was all fine, power out and just blew it now
again, same Mod Tube, other one is fine. AC line voltage was at
122Vac...set the Screen Grid voltage to -70vdc...



This also only happens on the 80 meter band so far, not on higher...

radios. I recently got in a 4EX4A10 pulse generator and I cant find the LBI
(3736) for it so I dont have the schematics and parts list for it. It has a
couple of things that dont look right. There is a DPDT toggle switch on one
end and a 4 pin mic jack on the other but when I opened the case to check
for any old Mercury batteries that may...
