Another plea for Heathkit meter

Before I contact a possible source of repairing the
meter from my Heath SB-630 station control I am again
seeing if someone out there has one.

What I need is rated at 200 uA with an internal
resistance of 800 ohms.  It is the dark colored type
with the dark meter scale.  It is trapazoidal in
shape, approximately 1.75 inches wide on the top, 1.5
inches wide on the bottom, and 1.5 inches tall.

Unfortunately, the white scale meters like used on the
HD-15 phone patch are too wide.  They are 2.0 inches
wide at the top.

I can switch the meter scale if I can find a 200 uA at
800 ohm meter the correct size.

The meter used in the SB transmitters, receivers, and
transceivers are 1 mA movements.  In a real "pinch" I
might be able to use one of those meters since I do
not use the phone patch portion of the SB-630.  The
SWR bridge just wouldn't be as sensitive as with the
200 uA meter.  But, I would like to keep the SB-630 as
close to original as possible.

Let me know what is out there.
