HEY GANG,   I've got a Globe King 400B that hasn't been used for ages. it's pretty dirty and I put about 70 volts A.C. on it last night from a Variac just to see if some of the tubes would light up. that's about as far as I got.   Didn't want to get too carried away and start burning up caps and what have you. ever so briefly I did see most of the tubes light up except for the driver 807 and the oscillator 7C5 I believe it is.   I think I have those and will follow up later but for now I'm happy.  Also got the mercury vapor rectifiers to light off very briefly without burning anything up and then I turned it off.  I want to do a lot more inspection and clean up before I get brave and do anything else. that said I'd like to start putting out a search for a 75 meter set of coils for this thing.
It has a 40 meter set of coins in it right now.   I'm not complaining about that. I'LL use it there if that is all I can get, but it would be nice to put in on the A.M. window on 75 phone.

If you know of anyone with a 75m band coil set for one of these things, would you please be so kind as to let me know.

Many thanks and best 73

If you'll stake out eBay the individual coils show up there from time to time. I put together a 15 meters set that way.

Thanks Mike, good suggestion, I might just have to resort to that. Good idea.
