I need a source for some help please.
My Alpha 374A has a loose BNC connector on the back panel (RF Input) and
I need someone here in Houston who could repair or replace this connector.
Can anyone suggest someone who could repair this BNC? Lord knows that this
50# machine needs to be carried out of the bedroom. I do not know whether
this repair could be done or does it need to be moved to a bench and
disassembled. I am not really sure how much I would have to pull the back
plane off the 374A , Honestly, I dread not only carrying this boat anchor
off the bed and where to find the part, etc.
I know that Lon has done this in the past but I respect his decision to
retire from such work. However, in his absence, he has left a great vacancy
in the local HV repair scene.
Again, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Regards to all, Chas Hamilton...
