Actually, the bulb required needs to put out more light than the Radio
Shack #1819 does. The 1819 is too low a current bulb (and hence too
dim) but it's what's readily available. To solve this problem, I simply
bought another bayonett socket from radio shack and wired another socket
in parallel. With two #1819 bulbs in parallel you can position them to
more uniformly illuminate the meter. Light output is quite acceptable.
