So it begins, I am now on the road to putting the galaxy back together enough to try it out. I was out puttering in the workshop this morning listening to the early bird old folks that get on channel 2 first thing in the morning, nice group of guys, bunch of locals, one lives about 7 blocks from me. Anyhow, I was looking at the old cobra that's half disassembled on my bench and figured the case would make a great bracket, so I peeled the case off and took it over to my rusty trusty anvil and flattened it out, and laid out the shape of the braket I will need to support the Frequency counter. then I cut out the shape with some snips and had to re-flatten it, I love my anvil. I bent the tabs down for the sides and center brace and dry fit it. a couple drill holes and a snip of some slots and its all screwed into place. I hope repairing the rest of it is this simple.
