[AMRadio] 20V3 bulbs

I checked Home Depot this evening and they carry the 120VAC S6 bulbs, but
not the 230/250 version.  I picked up a couple anyway.  They work in my 300G
and, as it turns out, my 20V-2 was modified for 120V bulbs with the addition
of a dropping resistor.  Eventually, I'll remove the dropping resistors and
put 250V bulbs back in it.
