  Ted,

The "discussed" WC3K mods do NOT require ANY holes, AND all are readily 
reversible.

The over-modulation modification was "cleverly" performed by removing 
ONE screw on the front panel, and placing the LED there!

I haven't put a single hole in the DX-60 that I have.

Even the PTT mod requires NO holes in the Old Gal!
