Haven't yet. But found the Amp Lady on the east coast of Florida that
might be able to help me when she gets some time.
Her new place she moved to here in Florida is up on second floor and
I can lift these things to get them up there. She said she could come
over to my home and fix them there but needs to get some time.
When I get them fixed up will let you know how it went and what she charged
for doing it.
im in the same boat. I have one that was made for 11 meters. Want to add coils or a roller. did you get it done
Why would you expect to hear occasional pops and snaps when you key it? If done properly there should be no arcing whatsoever and with a 4-1000 after the first pop or snap I highly doubt there would be another one to follow.
Let's just say that, "I been there". Too many 450 volt electrolytics strung together trying to reach 5000 volts, that accounted for the snaps and for-what-ever-reason it would occasionally arc during tuning. Sounded like a .45 ACP at close range.
Now-a-days, the owner would have to take out a paid up Whole Life Insurance Policy on me before I would mess with that thing again.
