Did John, WA5BXO, bake the transformers? I have a nice
BC 610 E that has been in the State of Kentucky until
a couple of years ago ( not Gulf Coast humidity) and
in my enclosed garqage in South Louisiana  for about
two years. I plan to fire it up soon and an wondering
if I should apply heat with heat lamps or electric
heaters and for how long? Any ideas? Thanks, and 73,
John, K5PGW
