I define that as an "optimist."

The masochist is the person who pleads "beat me." 
The sadist says "nooooooo."

Message-ID: <9608198431.AA843165571 at CCMAIL.AIRTOUCH.COM>

     I would like to get my 30L-1 ready for an upcoming 
     contest-expedition... but the amp is arcing in the power 
     supply and I can't trace out the problem.  
     Is there anyone out there that has experience with the amp 
     that I can bounce some questions off of?
     I am also looking for documented mods for the 30L-1.
     Please contact me directly @ ken.silverman at
     Many thanks,
     Kenny, WM2C/6

 York (and probably fared decently against the pack, I did not compare 
 all the scores)  BUT they say my log is not there.......A hell of a 
 lot of work for nothing.....
