Consider a 4CX250 and a beefy mod iron. Solid state the HV  pull those rectifiers and that will make room for the mod iron.  The 807's would be put where the rectifiers were.

Anyway please don't part it out

That news was heard on the Lonely Guys net.  I couldn't believe it.  A knock in the pit of my stomach.

Rest in peace Sid

I had quite a bit of difficulty finding the UTC porcelaine caps recommended for the drain bypass in the RF deck. Could not find anyone in the UK who had them and they were going to cost a bit if I had to have them sent over from America.
I used these large ceramic SMD’s in parallel soldered togther with some copper foil and they seem to work up to the full output power. If anyones interested here’s the info from Farnell

Thanks Vic! The meters are called Trumeters and they are available quite easily although they are a bit pricey. If you search on youtube there’s a chap in the US who has also used them for a Class E rig.

Just got back from the Bismarck hamfest where I scored pretty well. Picked up a DX-100B complete and original for $50. Got a big box of transmitting tubes including three 100TH's, four 254W's, and a bunch of NOS 6155's - which I think are equivalent to 4-125's - right?? Got all the tubes, about 20 in all, for $20. Hopefully some are good Huh I found two NOS 6B4G's for a decent price as well. Big find of the day was one of those high end Western Electric K-15560-L1 tube testers made by Hickok. Good shape - paid $50. Found a beautiful unused National transmitting variable, 500pf, 3/8 inch spacing, about 18 inches long, $20. Got some variacs real cheap, and a Bird 43 to top it all off. My RF deck also won the home-brew contest - full disclosure - there were only two entries  Cheesy. That got me a $25 ARRL gift cert. WOO HOO!

The box of tubes had about 15 Amperex 5894 tubes and three RCA 829's which I think are VHF finals. If somebody wants them, I will send them to you for the cost of shipping, otherwise they go to the dump.

Anyway, it was a good day.

Between 2300Z and 2400Z today I worked half a dozen stations on AM, WA to FL and in-between.

Eventually sorted out all my minor problems with the build and had my first QSO with my new TX on 3.615 Mhz with excellent audio reports. Just ticking over with 100 w carrier. Thought I would share a few pics. Thanks to Steve for doing all the hard work and making all this available.

I am in need of the Modulation transformer (T4), which is an SNC P1992....... Or something similar which can be jammed inside.

Thank you.

  Conditions here on the West Coast were not good, plus I'm a bit of a Druid, I don't have a PC in the shack so all logs are on paper.

   Saturday night, the 3rd, I worked K6KMM is Southern California and W7GQE in Oregon before an equipment problem took me off the air.

I received a number of paper logs.  I typed them into the logging software and uploaded them to the server.  If paper is all you have, we'll take it (or at least for next year!).!!
