    WHEW!!! Glad to see it back up and running on the rails. Kinda like a derailment, it takes 24 to 48 hours to clean up. In this case, it did take 48 hours to "clean up". Now I can get the RPOTW put up. :tb-wink:

    Seeing vacuum tube part numbers has me thinking of digging out my old short wave radio. Hope it will still work. A kit I built in high school 45 years ago. Yikes.

    Welcome back Trainboard, I will never take you for granted again!

    When my brother passed away last fall, I had the honor of cleaning out his ham radio shack. I found a Hallicrafters SW receiver from 1946, complete with the manuals at the bottom of a pile of radios. That thing weights more than a Big Boy, but I can turn it on and heat my layout room from the tubes. My first radio kit was a 5 tube receiver in 10 grade electronics class.
    R.I.P Don (aka WB0QGA), I miss you big brother.

    Yeah, but they use solid state and microelectronic devices! Lets go for a vacuum tube design! (I know, would be larger than Univac!)

    Don't you mean Griefkit? I built their first 2 meter HT kit back in the late 1970's. The thing did not work from the very start and my bro and I went crazy troubleshooting it. It was a doublesided board and some of the through holes that were suppose to conduct, didn't! Once we figured that out and proved it to Heathkit, they were very nice, they gave me another board! They wanted me to unsolder the components from one board and resolder it on the replacement. After much complaining, they gave me a new kit. That one worked well, for it's time. Nowadays, it is a brick! I can imagine what Heathkit would do with DCC, could you imagine soldering up a DZ-125 size decoder?
