I have a built OHR 20 meter SPIRIT (do not read SPRINT). This is the
rig which sells for $200.00 in kit form. By the way, Dick said he was
raising the price on this kit (He may have already). Anyway, the rig
worked great but I did something stupid. I have a remote antenna
selector which carries 12v on the coax. I (in a state of early AM
stupor) connected the wrong coax to the rig. OOPS! 12 volts on the
antenna connector of the rig! The receiver section works fine but
the transmitter section is only putting out about 750 milliwatts.
The radio is beautifully constructed -- even if I do say so myself.
I have a ton of radios and not a ton of time due to work committments.
I will sell the radio for $100 (including shipping) to someone who wants
to fix it -- I assume, at worst the finals are blown. But I would guess
it may not be that bad.
I can be reached at 703-231-5148 8-3PM EDT -- leave voice mail if I am
not in --- or here at Buhyoff@vtvm1.cc.vt.edu
Thanks, Greg Buhyoff KN4FR
