Here's a Tech Special. About 1 year old previously lightly used 500V with gold label HG 2879's. I got it from a friend who got it new and rarely used. Worked great, seeing 525 out with 1 watt dead key on 14.4 volts. Has had Heavy Wire Internal mod performed. I blew it up by accidentally running on wrong antenna into a high SWR. There are 2 wire wound chokes in the back. One is still attached and got smoked. The other burned completely off. I see two small resistors next to the pills that are smoked. That is all I can see that is physically burned. Have no way to test the pills to know if they are good or not. Cabinet and front looks great. Everything worked fine - Meter, all lights and Preamp. Have Factory Box. You can fix or is good for all the other parts. Definitely worth fixing by competent Tech if the pills are good. Have no idea what to ask for it. Make a reasonable offer. Silly Low Balls will be ignored. Priority Mail with Tracking. Paypal Fine.
