I got one around here too.  A friend gave it to me.  The tubes are bad and not 
the same, so I have thought of converting it to some Russian GI7b ceramic 
tubes.  I have a few of these tubes lying around here. Turning it into a 160 
meter amp seems like a good idea to me.  You can buy new GI7b tubes for around 
$25 each. I would not put a lot of money into this amp as you mentioned it has 
no tuned input, is ugly looking with only one meter and is super heavy with a 
steel cabinet with built in power supply.  It would be a great amp to 
experiment with, chop and alter.  I just would not spend much, if any, on 
acquiring it.

I have an oppertunity to pick up a Swan Mark 1 amp which uses a pair
of 3-400s.  10M-80M with no tuned input.  I thouhgt it might be a good
choice to convert to either single band 6 Meters or 160 Meters.

Any thoughts are appreciated.
