Another ham was interested in my DX-40 so I the DX-40 on the bench, looked it 
over and    took some more pictures:

Here    is a synopsis of what I found:
1.  Dirty and dusty!  Panel    straight and lettering good. No extra holes. 
2.  Coax RF output    changed to UHF connector. Also holes for another UHF 
3.  I    think the power transformer has been changed - it looks good but 
definitely    doesn't look original.
4.  Additional AC line filtering was    added.  Also noted 'smoke' stain on 
chassis under ac wiring.
5.     Chassis has a slight 'bow' in it - probably from weight of    
6.  RF coupling cap in PA output is now a 'door knob'    type.
7.  Case dirty but in good shape.  There is a small cutout    in back area.
8.  No door on the crystal access area.

That's    it. Take a look at the pictures and, if you are interested, drop me a 

Asking Price: $40 plus shipping.

I estimated shipping to Texas would cost about $23 (UPS Ground) - I can  give 
any interested parties an exact quote if they will send me their  "SHIP TO" 

Thanks and 73
