Why do I keep doing this to myself?
I got out a BC-348 that was given to me by a friend, passed on from a dead
relative some years ago.
What a beautiful piece of mechanical work!
There is a label, 348-N, but when i look at a manual for J,N, and Q
versions, it's not like mine at all, even though they say those versions are

I have VT 86, 86, 91, 63, 86, 70, 93, 48.
That's the lineup of the -P version.

SO, could mine be in the wrong case?  It's not butchered, except to rewire
the filaments for 6V.  There's a 6V xfmr, but B+ is derived directly from
the line!  I'm trying to remember not to touch any grounds, but don't know
if the chassis is floating or not.  The cord is two wire!  needless to say,
I'm planning a pwr xfmr installation!

If you have a good link to the -N book, I'd appreciate it, or know of a
source for buying one?
I don't remember these as very hot, but with two RF amps, it should be
pretty good.  The book gives the sensitivity specs, which are not
impressive, however.

Thanks for whatever insight you can pass on.

PS; The CX contest is the cause of all this trouble!
