Interesting again, that is the style but the dial on this one only 
covers 6 meters.  Who would have thought they would do something like 
that (snicker).  I thought the knobs were incorrect, but the picture 
shows the kind of knobs that are on this one.  Wonder if the dial 
markings for 10 meters have just faded out?

The previous owner, now SK, used it mobile on 6 meters with an AF 68.  I 
bought it all from his estate.  The AF 68 puts out nearly 28 watts on 6 
meters.  Now if I just had a 6 meter antenna :>).

Thanks Pete
