John, you get to play with some of the *neatest* stuff! My Dad has some books on vacuum tube design and characteristics. One is by Spangenberg and he has two others (can't recall the author). I was r

I have my Dad's MLA-2500 in my shack for what I suspect is a filter capacitor replacement job. It hadn't been operated in a long time and Dad wanted me to check everything out (he's had health proble

Thanks, Tom. Yes, there are carbon comp resistors across the caps and I plan to replace those with metal film; I'll look for carbon comp resistors across the rectifiers and pull them. The story I rea

Oh, good! Thanks, Robert. Now, I gotta figure out how to insure that metal chips don't wind up where they mustn't be. A vacuum cleaner right at the drill should help a lot. Happy QRO, Kim, N5OP Yeah,

I have an early AL-80A (S/N 095) with a power supply that I modified for another 1000 v of B+. I did that over ten years ago and all was well. However, I've moved a couple of times since then and cha

As I've been working on my Dad's MLA-2500 (not the B model), I've noticed that at some point in time, there must have been an arc between the 10 m coil tap contact and the adjacent ground contact. Fo

I've been repairing my Dad's MLA-2500. It started with bad filter capacitors, but then I decided it really needed a step-start circuit. In adding that, I had to alter toe mains connection. The cord i

Thanks, Hal! Nothing in the amp depends on 120 VAC return path to neutral (I double checked). I used 3-conductor SJOOW "water resistant" wire, 16-3. It says it's rated to 300 V, not 600 V, which was

I've finished the filter capacitor replacement in my Dad's MLA-2500. I also added a step-start, a new power cord (surprise!), and did some serious cleaning of the band switch. In doing the latter, I

Yep, I've been informed that what I've done isn't such a Good Thing and I've performed a naive (not to code) fix. Among the problems I now face is distance: one antenna (a vertical dipole) is about 3

My Dad had an MLA-2500. I recall that we had to add some fixed C-load for it to load properly on 160 m; even at that, it didn't do well below about 1.85 MHz or so. It was also not very efficient on 1

I should have added to my post that, when tuned into a 50 ohm resistive load, I never saw the kind of behavior reported here with the load cap. It pretty much tuned by the book. Something isn't right

I'm curious about how input impedance of a GG am changes as a function of B+ supply. I have a single 3-500Z GG amp for which I can't seem to get as good a match as I expected when adjusting the input

All this talk about relays and QSK has me wondering why aren't PIN diodes used more commonly? Then I began to read about some of the atrocious swtiching that goes on with some rigs. I have an AL-80A

Thanks, Phil! What I have is a very early PIN-5 switch (S/N 0018). I understand that this evolved into the QSK-5, but I don't know what the differences are. As this is an early model, I haven't much
