Hmmm.  Well, it was working okay the last time I checked it.  I could, 
of course, blame UPS, as is the fashion -- HOWEVER, I believe I re-tubed 
the radio as a courtesy to you just before I boxed it up (no good deed 
goes unpunished). :-) .  It's possible that a tube or two is bad -- 
especially if they're JAN Philips types, which are occasionally 
incompatible with their civilian counterparts. Then again, I could have 
installed a wrong tube or swapped sockets.  (Someday I'll tell you about 
the time I swapped rectifier and audio output tubes at 2 A.M. after a 
rebuild). I should have re-checked the transceiver before shipping. I 

I'll see if I can find the original tubes or new civilian ones and send 
them to you.

In any case, I'll be happy to repair the rig or refund your money, Dan.  
But -- it DOES look nice, doesn't it? :-)

VY 73,
