    I have been fascinated with that receiver since I first saw it in an old Allied catalog... I've never seen one in the flesh, and I haven't seen much chatter about them online.

    They were either short-lived (i.e., not robust), or maybe just not popular. They were not inexpensive.

    120 watts "IHF" is probably about 40-45 wpc (likely into 4 ohms) -- these are pre "FTC '74" ratings, needless to say :|

    Again with a pic of the equipment you are going to use to fix this???? LOL. Just guess here though. You fixed something and this is what a good signal is supposed to look like?

    close ;)
    I was makin' sure the scope was working properly after I saw that other waveform :/ I tested it with a sine wave generator. The scope is fine.
    The DC power supply I was testing... is not. :/

    That's still as far as I've gotten on this particular little imbroglio.

    It's fun using a scope, though... it's kind of like riding a bike. Kind of.

    My dad used to work for AT&T at a nuclear hardened microwave station built down into the mountain in the Mojave Desert with more heavy duty shielded copper cables than I've still seen to date. There was always equipment like yours everywhere. I remember seeing the equipment making those cool looking waves.

    Oh cool man. I just did a quick search and found it. Check out the link. Lots of memories there. Me and my sister would play with the sidewinders in that parking lot. Lol. The drive up there always scared the **** out of me

    Mark, there is an easy way to fix the Power Supply you are speaking of. Get your wife, have her sit down next to you at the bench....(This is old school technology). Remove the biggest capacitor in the unit and short it with a screwdriver that you do not care about.

    This may not fix the PS but now you won't have to worry about it anymore.

    You can thank me later.

    My father used to discharge 'em against grounded chassis. I have pretty vivid memories of that as a pretty small kid, hangin' round in his repair shop. :)

    Mrs. H's father spent his career (starting with 'the phone company' in Washington state in his late teens, a long time ago) with AT&T. I suspect not coincidentally, their retirement house up here (just a mile or so from where I sit as I type this) just happened to be sited within a couple thousand yards of an AT&T microwave relay tower. The tower's still there, in fact, although not (AFAIK) used for any thing any more. A relic from a bygone era in telecommunications.

    Just a couple random pics. That was Copper River Salmon fresh from the Pike Market in Seattle. Now that I live in FL I can't eat Salmon.

    That B17 Bomber was the my Grandfathers aircraft in England during WWII.

    I picked up some of Conner McGregor's Proper Twelve Irish Whiskey and while I did not have high expectations, it is actually pretty good!

    And last but not least our late beloved Xena, a Anatolian Shepherd on our RV road trip.

    Nice B17! Your grandfather has a lot to be proud of, and I'm sure you are too, of him. From the high mortality rate of the daytime precision bombing, lack of fighter escort, flak, etc. To be able to stay on target, deliver the payload, and return back to base.

    Those B17's could take a beating for sure!

    My sincere admiration and respect for your grandfather @CH46E !

    Sadly the Judy J was salvaged for parts. I dont know if there was damage and she was not repairable. I do know she was never shot down.

    Thanks!

    My dear wife (who is also a life scientist by training, although more bio than chemical, in her case) just shared this with me -- I thought that some here might find it amusing, as well.

    I did edit out one somewhat political entry from the screenshot of this PDF file, in full disclosure.
