This evening, after a couple small repairs and alignment, the Galaxy 
300 seems to be working fine. The first time I spun the dial with an 
antenna connected what do I hear? - the distinctive WB9GKZ laugh from a 
couple kcs away. I tuned him in and found that Pat was spieling on or 
about 3820 kHz. At least that's what the dial said, and I'd just 
calibrated it. I threw in a couple wise cracks and was rewarded with a 
good report. I think the rig is about ready for the vintage SSB net.

One of the sideband generator crystals had drifted too far out to be 
adjusted by the trimmer, so I added a series 12pF cap and that gave me 
the ability to get it on frequency. Not much else wrong, and now it 
seems to be meeting specs all around.
