D & A Amp

Hi Gentlemen,

I just got a D & A Raider from the '70's.
Any good suggestions on tests, tuning it and setting the band knobs for 11 meter?
I need to set the Load knob with a tiny screwdriver.
All good ideas, suggestions, recollections of uses in prior lives are appreciated.

Jumper cables

Would RG-8X coax jumpers be good to put a D&A Raider Amp in line with my base units?


I plan to get 2- 9' jumpers and hook in line directly with my President Washington or the Galaxy 2517 as required.


Ideas would be respected and appreciated.

Re: RM Italy KL-505v

I got all that, too. Several times I tried to get the 505 and
think I even saw that it wasn't available for sale in US. Not completely sure about that, but it's in my head somehow.
Anyway, didn't get anywhere with 88 Radio this time. I got the 203-P from them, though, last year.
