Hi John,
Noticed your query about Frontier Capacitor. I assume that you want to rebuild the caps in the transmitter. Have developed a method to rebuild those tab mount electrolytics. It entails putting new caps inside so that the unit looks the same. Have had great success and will be glad to share my notes with you. Let me know.

> Thanks to all who responded to my query about Frontier Capacitator. Now another question: Have any of you ever aligned a Hammarlund HX 500 transmitter. I would like to consult with anyone who has ever "worked on" repaired or serviced the HX 500. I have weird noises on the signal and much noise and uneven noise in each sideband.. I believe it needs a complete realignment of the sideband generator section. Please share your experience with that piece of equipment with me. Thanks and 73, John, K5PGW
