hi Chris,
    John, W4AWM, mentioned it, and I'd strongly recommend that you do it 
before you put any power on the rig -- change out the HV rectifiers to SS, 
and get the 5v windings removed from the sockets.  (don't ask how I know 
why)  And just put some heat under the rig for a day or 3 to warm it and 
drive moisture out.  a 75 of 100w light bulb, with a tent of cardboard over 
it should do it.  Hallicrafters HV transformers are a bit fragile in that 
    You can see one of my HT-37 jobs on my webiste, and some details on the 
rectifier change down at the bottom of the page.
    There's also an easy PTT mod you can do, info there also.
    Electrically the only big difference between the HT-37 & HT-32 is the 
sideband generator, the rest of the circuit is essentially the same.  The 
HT-32 is mechanically more robust.  You'll have a good time with it on the 
air, nice rig, great audio.
