The black faceplate is a decal from gammaraygraphics.com
He also supplied the black faceplate decal for the recent restoration of an SB-220 I did for a friend. (Chronicled on this forum)

I recently finished a 148GTL that I have been trying to refurb off and on for about 3 or 4 years. The bezel and faceplate of the 148GTl was in horrible condition. I bought a new bezel* and all new knobs from Barkett Electronics but he did not have a faceplate. I like the looks of the black faceplate (the 139XLR spoiled me) so ordered one for the 148 and added the 138XLR faceplate to the order. Kind of a "Big Brother-Little Brother" thing.

*The bezel I ordered from Barkett Electronics was the Galaxy Front Bezel for DX 33 / 44 / 77 Connex 3300/3300HP.
With a little creative use of epoxy, it fit the 148GTL (Made in the Malaysia version) perfectly.


Maybe this won't take as much "creative use of epoxy".

    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.
