Made a rookie mistake today while puttering around with Olaf (my sb-
100)... dial was slipping so I was going to attempt to readjust by
loosening nut and pushing down as stated in the manual. Unfortunately I
over- loosened and the now the dial knob just flops(pulley is off the dial
Im assuming after looking at pictures of replacement ones).. DOH! I now
have to go out to the hardware store and procure that SUPER tiny Allen
wrench so I can remove the zero dial set knob and the "heathkit sb-...

Shades of K1T all over again (and NO!! - this time Im NOT doing chemical
stripping - I really learned my lessons on K1T last summer with 19 SB
boxes, plus the HW boxes - YIKES!!!! These will be sanded, primered, and
sprayed - never again with chemical stripping!! )



I now have a pretty complete Drake TR7 station in perfectly working
condition for my next Special Event Station W8D in January 2018, to
commemorate the 75th anniversary of the founding of Robert L. Drake,
Company in 1943...

Rebuilding R-390A Power Supply Caps. Step by Step With Photos

This thread is intended to document the reconstruction of R 390A power
supply capacitors from start to finish.



I havent found any good sources explaining "how to" do this exactly with
any significant level of clarity and step by step detail. So I am creating
this thread as a reference for those wishing to rebuild their power supply
caps in their cherished boat anchor rigs.



This information is not only limited to the R390A, but could be used to
demonstrate how to rebuild caps in any boat...

SB-10 experts please?

OK, trying to tune up this old SB10 into the Apache. Everything seems
somewhat normal, but when trying to adjust the audio and balance phasing, I
get an uneven waveform. That is looking at the RF on a scope at 80M, the
peaks and valleys are not equal, they alternate as to amplitude. It looks
sort of like the book, but like I say alternating amplitudes. Nothing I
seem to do seems to make it change. Im loading it pretty much like the
book, but Im only loading the Apache up to 200ma Ip with...

Ameco / Ameco Aerotron AC-1 history

Posted: 01 Mar 2017 08:24 AM PST

Does anyone know the history of Ameco, and then later Ameco a Division of
Aerotron? I read a summary of Amecos history once, specifically with
regard to the AC-1, but now can not find it. I just purchased an AC-1,
Aerotron version. I received my original AC-1 for Christmas in 1967. Im
trying to determine if my old 1967 AC-1 was an Aerotron version or not.
Thanks, Scott K7KQ
