Well, we might meet up sooner than you think - I'm in the middle of
arranging a visit to the '99 Dayton Hamvention. Now that would be a

It would be even better if we could also get hold of at least one of
the service experts from TenTec, for a question and answer session.
Now back to fixing my Hercules II amplifier .. I just got thru fixing
the 253 ATU.
