New to me Old Ham Transceiver

I just purchased an older (mid 1960's I think) Kenwood TS820S ham Transceiver. Its hybrid, both solid state and tube. I haven't plugged it in yet, but other than visually inspecting all the caps and bringing it up slow with a Variac, any ideas on what else i should do? Oh, and no, I am not a Ham (ye...

Has the drone bug bit MicroRem? :smile: They can be addictive! Only the imagination limits what one can do with a remote camera in 3D space. I'm amazed that a large following of droners go long distance- out of sight, like several miles! Explore your neighborhood! Maybe, I am still trying to decide...

Re: Drone communication/control

A friend of mid brought his Phantom drone to my place and I "flew it" It was really odd to me, being an RC and full scale pilot, that I had to think about every input since I was, in my mind, "telling it where to go" not "telling it what to do" I had a blast, we shot some neat footage of my property...

Re: need help looking for a DC input led power supply (12-24

AllElectronics.com has a 29.4 volt supply for $9. You would lose some brightness but the price is right. CAT# PS-294.

Re: DB25 mounting plate

OK, I went to Front Panel Express and downloaded the design program. I have to say, I have zero experience with CAD and although I didn't complete my drawing quickly or efficiently, I did complete it. Ordered 20 units made of 3mm anodized aluminum. Cost was quite reasonable I think. Thanks everyone ...
