FS Collins 516F-2 AC Power Supply. This unit is Winged Emblem and has a
"correct" speaker installed in the cabinet. The cabinet is CCA Very Good to
near Excellent. There are a few small scuffs in the paint which is original.
They are hardly noticeable. The Power Supply has been completely rebuilt to
original specs. All capacitors have been replaced with high quality parts
using the KE9PQ Capacitor Replacement Kit. And the old cube selenium
rectifier has been replaced with 1n4006 diodes. All work was performed by
R.L. Howard, a retired Collins Dealer and Service Technician. No "bugging
in" work here. All old parts were removed, the solder joints desoldered and
the wires from the new parts were wrapped in and soldered just like the
factor did. The power supply works perfect. It could us a new power cable.
The original one is safe, but the outside of the cable is beginning to fray.
The insulation on the inter wires is fine. Pictures are available. Price is
$475 plus shipping. Thanks, Charlie Hugg, K5MBX
