Howdy Dan:

I owned a Tri-X500 in the late sixties/early seventies and it was a fine 
transmiter....not transceiver.

The main tuning mechanism was superbly smooth and the multi-position 
switches had a very smooth and unique feel to them.

The chassis was unique in that it appeared to be completely cast with 
separate compartments for various sections.....unlike compartments with the 
sides screwed was very solidly built indeed.

Not sure how many were made but they were a very popular transmitter in the 
late least in Staten Island, old QTH:-)

Would sure like to see the pictures of the brochure.
