My .02$ is that if the guy was dumb enough to hook up a BALANCED tuner,
and an old one at that, to his ricebox, especially without checking
things out first, that you are in now way responsible, Don.

He "found" a short? Why didn't he check the tuner BEFORE hooking
it up to a radio it was in NO WAY designed to work with?

Sounds fishy to me too. I would ask him to specifically detail the
connection scheme. Is there an auto tuner in the 735? IIRC, I
thought that the 735 had SWR protection built in. Sounds fishy,
wait...I already said that.
