Subject: [AMRadio] Replacing sweep tubes with 6146s

I picked up a Yaesu 570 ( predacessor to FT-101) at the Brooksville hamfest
today. No finals.

I seem to remember a few years back an article on converting the finals in a
FT-101* to 6146s.

Seems like a good idea now since a 6KD6 sweep tube cost a lot more than a

Back when the tube rice boxes came out the sweep tubes could be had for a
couple of bucks.

Anyone have thoughts on this potential conversion?
