Hi all,
    Well, I don't think I'm going to go much farther with this one.  Don't know
how much I'd really get back into AM after being out of it 30 yrs or so.  Plus I
need some space, and get tired of moving this biggy around.
    The Valiant is operating, but probably needs attention in a few areas.  I
have replaced the troublesome 18k VFO dropping resistor, with a 3 watter,
mounted outside of the VFO box.  I have operated it recently on 10m (& 40 I
think).  Front panel is good from a straight front view, but has some
rubs/scratches around the outside lip where it gets layed on when you tip the
rig up.  Case is original paint, oughta be re-done.  Chassis is dusty, but will
clean easily.  All good tubes, 3B28 rectifiers still. (one is loose in its'
base)  I've started replacing the missing white dots in the knobs, seem to drop
& lose every other one I make, so haven't finished.
    I don't really want to ship it, so $325 if picked up, or I will deliver to
the Durham, NC, fest on Sat.  $375 plus actual shipping cost if shipped.  I'll
do a good job of packing.
    Also have an SB-10 that I got with it, but not made the mods.  $65 pickup or
$75 plus shipping.  Won't sell separately.
    Glad to answer any questions, & can take some digipix.
