Carol, thanks for the information. I just found
another set of 6JS6C tubes at a good price, so I think
I'll just re-tube and align my 101 as-is.
I did do the Fox Tango WARC mods. I didn't see any
performance problems. The 12 and 30 meter mods aren't
all that intrusive to the 101. The 17 meter mod with
the extra crystal, and coil connections was a little
hairy to perform, but I have made contacts on all the
bands without problems on the existing bands.
Carol, do you have any experience with the older
FTdx-400? I just picked one up. I'm going to go slow
with it, testing the tubes, and doing some
housecleaning before I "smoke test" it. From what I
have read, it was the fore-runner to the FTdx 401, 560
and 570 rigs. It is all tube except for the VFO and
some power supply circuits. I'm looking for a service
and owner's manual. I also need a dual knob set or
the clarifier. It is just like the clarifier and
AF/RF gain control setup on the 101.
Again, thanks for the input. I like to experiment,
but I'm never afraid to glean wisdom from those who
have the hands-on experience.
