and you call 'me' a good man.  YOU da Man, Brian!  thanks for the 
thought.  They'd certainly be appreciated.

I've only -seen- one, once, and John/W5MEU had it.  I -think- Bill/K5LLK 
(later WR5DX) got it, but he, too, has SK'ed on us.

I've got a 450TL and a line on a pair of TH's, but I don't think the 
750T and the 450T have the same base, but I might be mistaken.  At 450W 
of plate dissapation each, the 450's (if the base is the same) would 
work in the Bartlesville Transmitter (if I'm remembering correctly).

Hey, up in your neighborhood (almost) in Shreveport, ol' Ronnie/W5SUM 
(ex WB5AWA) got hisself an RF deck to house a couple of 450T's. Check 
with Ronnie.  Last I knew, he was gathering parts for a home-brewed 
single 450T final, modulated by a pair of 450's.  Since he now has that 
deck, perhaps y'all could work something on homebrewing you up a rig to 
get back on the air with.

Speaking of which, have you (or anyone) talked to W5NBC lately?  Last I 
heard from him, Jim was in Sour Lake, TX, just west of Beaumont, on 
Highway 105.
