the database on mods is HUGE, a lot of good people on their that can help you unmod that transciever.
tube conversion is done with a low cost 6lb6, diagram and instructions are also on the yahoo siltronix group.
stability, once it is aligned correctly, 15 to 30 minute warm up it is pretty stable. the key is alignment.
I have a few 1011d and c's in the collection, and yes I work 10 meters with them, great RS reports, non amplified d-104 or a shure 444, does not get any better than those old tubers.
If you want to get real serious there are a few VFO stabilizer kits that can be installed in them also. I have one in the Swan 700cx and after five minutes it is rock solid on freq.
real radios glow in the dark
