Hi Tom,

Thanks... Well, the nicotine actually preserved the radio. :-). It came 
off NP with Windex with Vinegar.

The chassis is another story. The copper cladding has been eaten away 
from something that spilled inside and was left to do its damage. I 
think I am going to take it down to bare metal and spray it with something.

As far as the sticker is concerned... Get your hands on some Goo Gone. 
Wal Mart sells it as well as many other variety stores. Apply it to the 
sticker and let it set for like 30 mins or longer, the sticker should 
get translucent. Then scrape it off with your fingernail. Use nothing 
else as it might scratch the surface.

Rinse-repeat until all traces are gone. Then clean with Windex to get 
the Goo Gone off.

I am reworking much of the rig. Solid stating the PS and revamping the 
Mic and Modulator sections as per Timtron (WA1HLR). As I work on the 
electronics and do the WA1HLR mods, I am "re-drafting" the schematic. 
Once I am finished, I will make it available to the public along with 
Timmy's mods (After he blesses it for human consumption that is).

Good luck with the DX-100, they are a great rig!

73, cul...
