    Good old days...

    The captain kangaroo guy, I am assuming is in the red, looks like he is going to bust out singing with a silver, corded microphone any minute now "She's a lady" by Tom Jones all 70's style. And those alien things, are those tele tubbies, (spelled right?). Those things looks like insane...

    Texas Star DX500 and high SWR

    Yes, yes, yes, and perfect. I agree 100% with Shockwave, and personally wish people would listen to his advice. From everything I know, he is spot on. (not that I am some sort of superior qualified to judge, I mean this with the utmost respect)

    Old time Gospel Bluegrass Stations ???

    There's this one station, but it's kinda small, I think they used to be in a desert community. They kept playing the same song over and over, some yo-da-ladee song my grandma used to listen to. I used to hate it, until these invaders from another planet came down and it was the only thing that...

    Texas Star DX-350

    Texas Star DX-350 NON VARIABLE. This is in like new condition, bought years ago to pair up with an HR-2510 I have listed here. Asking 150.00 for the amp. It has been converted, and put back in the box until recently to test. If you want the amplifier and the 2510, I will make a package deal. See...

    Super star 250 amp

    The yellow ones were the early versions coming out of WA state. They did use mostly the re-labeled motorola transistors (SRF series). The later ones were made by a different outfit, called "Vern" in Texas. (no kidding on the Vern name) They for years supplied H&Y, copper, and MANY other places...

    2517 AUDIO

    Not to be rude, but how in the heck would "tx coils" have any affect on the TX audi frequency response of the mic and / or modulator circuit?

    Who made this little amp?

    Yep, they do. As long as you have the eletrolytic filter caps changed, then rectifiers would be a good idea, as long as they are actually bad of course. But you said you were getting no voltage to the filiment either, did you solve that?

    Who made this little amp?

    Gotcha. So you have 120 volts, as in the PRIMARY of the transformer, correct? But nothing out of the transformer secondaries? Are you sure you have 120VAC all the way to the primary? Also, check the caps. On older, cheap, garage amps like this (sweep tube amps) typically they would use cheap...

    Who made this little amp?

    Looks like either a single 8417 "jobby" but from the pic it maybe looks like the anode (plate) of the tube has a cap on it. What kind of tube does it have in it, and how do you know it has no B+ (HV)? What does it do, not do, etc? Have you just checked the circuit without firing it up first to...

    Think I got a good deal on this.

    The K40 would be the best choice, IMO except it is a trunk mount, and looks pretty rough, I would give EVERYTHING a good cleaning, and even some de-oxit spray for the controls in the radio. The lil wil aren't bad, but nothing great at all. K40 is my first choice. But who knows, clean it all up...

    Lafayette Telsat SSB 140

    It is a CB Radio. Simple design at that. What you need is a "Real" tech, not a parts swapper that is poking around looking for burned components, and cracked ones. Normally if something goes bad, it could be something on the other side of the board causing it. Take it to a real tech, and...

    811 H question.

    Gotcha. Also, thanks for the info. I don't do the e-bay thing, but when I *DO* send packages, they are *ALWAYS* packaged according to guidelines, and insured. It's just too much of a problem if something happens if you don't.
