the 25gtl is slowly crossing the finish line. i'm thinkin it will be posted in the gallery and the thread locked. next one i might either post in gallery, or maybe i'll do another thread to allow you guys (the peanut gallery) to interact with me while it happens again, idk. so in the pile i got a few things to work on that would make a good juicy thread. While my bench is a dictatorship and I get the final say, i'm willing to thew ya guys a little scrap of democracy so lets see some voting on what i should jump into next for a slow-roll resto thread

29gtl
140gtl
Courier Spartan SSB 23ch
29XLR (japan)
philly 29ltd I have 2, one needs a spare faceplate and maybe bezel

cobra 89GTL

I'll put my 2 cents in for the 29XLR, but then I'm always a sucker for the various mutations of the 858 chassis.
 
I'm very old school, so the Courier Spartan would be my pick, but it will be the most challenging and expensive. IMO the restoration would include a recap job and the crystal to cover 36-40LSB.

    If the antenna leads of an inverted V dipole are at 45 degrees instead of at 180 degrees, what happens to the signal?
  • @ snippits75:
    @AF7LL At 45 degrees it will be omnidirectional. At 180, horizontal, it will be directional.
