If the dot is black, it's mica, if it's silver, it's molded paper. This designation is in accordance with the AWS (American War Standards) or JAN (Joint Army-Navy) specs.? If the cap has only 3 dots, it is ALWAYS an RETMA 500 volt 20% mica cap. If there are 6 dots, and the upper-left dot is NOT black or silver, the cap is an RETMA mica cap. I am attaching a PDF file of the page which describes these caps. If they don't come through, email me at mharmon at att dot net and I'll send it to you. 73, Mike, WB0LDJ From mjcal77 at yahoo.com Fri Dec 15 22:49:11 2017 From: mjcal77 at yahoo.com (CL in NC) Date: Sat, 16 Dec 2017 03:49:11 +0000 (UTC) Subject: [AMRadio] Impoverished radio exp.

I did a conversion too, way back in the early 1980's. I used a pair of 4-65's. I am not aware of any conversion instructions. Instead, a sense of adventure, a tube manual, and some experimentation is required. The original ax9909 tubes had 12v filaments. Adding a 6.3v filament transformer is easy, with plenty of room.

I have this Knightkit R55A receiver that seems to be working pretty good now, even though the sens is not that great. AM with 10db S+N/N is around 3 uv, up to 40 meters, but a detectable CW signal is in the -120dbm range. The 6 meter band is hopeless. They should have put in an RF amp and another stage of tuned circuits like in the R100, but for 60 bucks back in the 1960's era to a Novice, was probably a pretty good bet. The MVC position basically grounds the circuit and runs the rig and full gain, but in AVC, it lets that circuit runs the show. One thing I can say for it, is that Knightkit designed a really good AVC circuit, I can hit it with 0dbm and it immediately compensates and gives good fidelity, where it will block solid around -30dbm in MVC, and why they call it MVC is odd as there is no manual gain control to turn. This receiver has a 1650KC IF strip, and it does work on the BC band just fine, but wondered exactly what is going on when I tune to 1650 on the AM dial. Guessing I have the equivalent of a direct conversion radio.

You could hear him regularly in the mornings and some afternoons. We lost Mike Friday to a massive heart attack. Mike had his first heart attack in his mid 30 and had been very careful since then. The AM community is a bit smaller today and it is a sad thing. Details for his funeral, if any, are pending. No obituary has been posted. 73, Jim W5JO From DonC at martineer.net Sun Dec 31 20:46:41 2017 From: DonC at martineer.net (Don Cunningham) Date: Sun, 31 Dec 2017 19:46:41 -0600 Subject: [AMRadio] Mike, WA5CMI In-Reply-To: References: Message-ID: Wow, what a shock.?
