If I remember right, there was also one in 73 Mag way back in the good ole
days when Jim Fisk (God rest and bless his soul) was editor. I believe it
was called the bottle tester or some such. Anybody remember that and can
find it in old 73s?? As I recall, there was some mention that this thing
could be built as something to take to hamfests to test bottles right there
at the seller's table. These days, many hamfest sites have some place to
plug into 120VAC. If you were REALLY serious, you'd lug a Gel-Cell around
with one of those 300+ watt 12VDC-120VAC inverters ;o)

actual For-Sale/Trade posts on his reflector and I don't want him to ban
