Saturday noontime, guys/gals:

If one wants a TURNS COUNTER, buy a Vectronics tuner.

I’m kinda of a sticker on this, but when you change something, and its no 
longer original, to me, the value goes down.

It’s like drilling a hole in the front of a Collins KWM-380 to add a switch 
for a filter.

Does the filter make the radio work better? Perhaps? But in the process, you 
have destroyed much of the value of the KWM-380.

Personally, I won’t buy a radio that’s been modified by adding switches or 
turns counters… But then that’s just me
