   With that Eico720, and a 40 watt bulb, all you needed to do was say "THREEEEEEEEE" instead 
of "FOURRRRR", and the bulb would have survived. ;-)

Hi Jack 
    This may be another dumb question but when you have a 60 watt bulb
for a dummy load and you tune the ranger into, of course it won't light to
full brilliance of 60 watts with only 40 watts going into it but it should
brighten up a lot, even to full 60 watt brilliance, when you say "FOURRRRR"
in the mic.  
    The 6146 rigs I used before such as the Eico720 have been known to
blow out a 40 watt bulb with modulation.

Just curious
