Rob: Thanks for your answer.  I thought a large metropolitan area 
like Los Angeles would provide enough potential buyers to get some 
bids.   I might get some snipe bids at the last moment, but probably 
not.  I think I'll part it out; and sell the power supply and tubes 
separately, keep other miscellaneous parts, and see if I can sell the 
cabinet to a scrap metal dealer.  If not, there is always the yearly 
free bulky waste pickup .  Hopefully, I can pack the power supply parts.

I'm having another problem, I'm not getting any recent posts from 
AMRadio, including my last two.  The last two received are from 
Donald Chester on 2/13 and Ken W8EK on 4/13/16.  I subscribed using a 
different email address.  I'll see what happens.
