Regarding the Paragon question, the main identity difference is that the
Paragon II says that on the front panel, and the number pad is in a white
field rather than the same gray as the other buttons. The Paragon II

It's my first post and questions already! 

The green digit on the #544 is considerabley less bright than the other red 
digits; almost useless in in a a bright room. I suspect this is not normal. 

what is the bulb type as used for the OUTPUT in the 252M power supply? 

What is the difference between a Paragon 1 and Paragon Model 2? How can you 
identify one from another or tell the difference. 

Thank you joe k7mks
