>1. cabinet has been painted black, looks fair;
>2. Front panel fair, typical paint off at corner;
>3. modified to be driven by CB transceiver
>    with extra relay and wires AS A LINEAR;
>4. not butchered up, can be restored to original;
>5. All tubes believed to be good;
>6. Condition of modulation transformer unknown.
>What is your estimate of the value of the Valiant as above described? If
>were buying it, what would you offer as a fair price?
>Also have a chance to purchase a DX 100B in average condition WITH A BAD
>MODULATION TRANSFORMER. Knowing the cost of a replacement modulation
