Hello all

My band switch is gone Sad

I understand that I could use one from the Ameritron al-572 or the al-80 and double it up.

Anyone have info on how I can do this mod?

Thanks all!!!

Are you really saying the entire bandswitch (wafers, metal frame, hardware, etc.) is missing? If true, a junker Valiant for parts might be worth considering or maybe you can find someone parting out a Valiant.

You might also try here. Looks like he has a band switch for sale:

Give it a little more time, someone should have some help.  These wafer switch problems are common and threads about them come up all the time.

That's a little different then "My band switch is gone". Buy the entire band switch if Gary still has it. At least you'll have some future spare repair parts.
