I use a product called Scrubbing Bubbles..it is a mild detergent that
works well and will not harm the paint or lettering.  Bill

Hmmmmm... That could be a real problem.  My semi-unqualified diagnosis
says it's one of several things.

1.  Seeing orange spots -- maybe like floaters?  Any leprechauns?  Pink
elephants.
2.  A serious contagious condition!  First you have one thing with vents
& spots that glow orange.  In a few weeks there will be another, then
another, and so on.  They'll get bigger and bigger and heavier and
heavier.  There'll be gray ones and black wrinkle ones and green ones
and, well, pretty soon you'll have to move.
3.  Might just be output transistors running a tad hot, or red LED's that
have faded a bit.
4.  Phil, you _DO_ know you're not supposed to use metal stuff in the
microwave, right?

Whatever, take two 6V6's and call me in the morning.

Oh, and Happy New Year,
Barry

Subject: [Hallicrafters] Looking for a "back" for 5R10
Message-ID: <001701c193f0$facf2c80$59df3ece@phil>


Hi
Now, All kidding aside.  I wonder if anyone out there has a 'junker'
Hallicrafters 5R10 back panel, for a reasonable price?  For those not
familiar with it, the 5R10 is a 5 tube AC/DC set covering 530kc to 30mc, ala
S-38 series (but no BFO).  This one was built in Nov 1953.  Now that this
unit is recapped the only thing it lacks is the back panel.

That will definitely eliminate the "glow" problems and
turn the set into a very effective paper weight!

Works great, but only in the case of rectifiers and diode detectors.

Hapy New Year!

I've been told that if I take a pair of dikes and cut a filament pin off the
offending  tubes that it will cure my "glow" problem.  Has anybody out there
tried this approach?

IF you find an "Environmental Agency" that specializes in cleaning up old
Hallicrafters, please post them on the site as we get several requests from
users with filthy radios <grin>.
