[AMRadio] Photos of Damaged Mod Iron

This discussion with UPS or whatever is worthy of the trash box.  It seems 
that every so often, the same folks get on their hobby horse and start a 
thread about shipping.   I often wonder how Yaesu, Kenwood, MFJ, etc. can 
send their products to their happy owners without damage.  It's all in the 

When Collins Radio Company shipped their 516F-2 power supply in their 
cabinet, they used block of wood wedged inside the cabinet.  I advise anyone 
shipping a 516F-2 to use the same technique or else ship separately. 
Incidentally, these blocks of plywood were discussed in an early issue of 
the Collins Journal.
