    Siltronix yahoo users group, lots of files and info there on how to restore, maintain and modify the silkies, they are good old rigs for what they are, and if aligned correctly and tuned properly they sure do get unsolicited audio reports.

    I have several 1011C and D's,, now if I can find a B model.

    Ok listen i didnt ask for a lecture on how my radio works or how much it drifts, i know how it works and how it drifts. this radio has been completely rebuilt and works like it did new. the reason i use it and dont move on is because it works perfectly for what i want to use it for. the siltronix is a very nice radio. i dont use it to transmit anyway it is just a receiver for me. i have a collins radio to transmit it works on all meters. it dose not drift at all. i just want a schamatic that shows how to center tap the coil in the vfo to make it transmit in the cb mode. Thank you very much Zach

    none of mine drift.

    Mainly because i never turn it off,its on all the time.And i never tell what i am running,they would never know.I run it every day on 10 mtrs,and it peaks around 90 to 100 wts everyday,for the last 5 yrs i have had this one in line.73s de JW

    He was making a suggestion not lecturing. Relax. If this is any indication, I can tell your going to be a real asset to the forum. Oh and you need a spell checker.

    I think you should have started a new thread. This one had a negative vibe to it. ;)

    I like the Siltronix rigs, and ran one back ("C" model) in the 80's for a short while (borrowed from a friend). They really do sound sweet on the air, and I've talked to a few of them over the last few years... so it's not just foggy fond memories.

    A fan/collector of them pointed out to me that people think they drift bad, and then also pointed out... "look ma, no clarifier"! Hence, the operator tuning to other stations and then being told he is drifting. I would not recommend one of these for a first HF rig, personally. You need to know what you are getting into, if the rig has been recapped, has good tubes, etc. And especially if it has good tubes, the finals in these have gotten kind of pricey. And if you don't tune it right, you burn up the tubes. Tuning it isn't hard, but lots of people don't "get it" and burn things up. And lots of times the pretty ones are the ones that weren't used, sat covered or in a box for 20 years, and the first time you fire it up, you'll find the caps have all dried up and the transformer blows. Just buy smart if you're going to get one.
