Well, got the lab going again. Doing a total recap and alignment on a Realistic TRC-490 (The 1st cousin to the late model Uniden Washington). It has the PC-385 circuit board.

Made contacts with several stations in Washington state, RH, Quebec Canada, and from Texas today with my HR2510 with a Palomar TX150..microphone was a Turner +3 mic. I was heard.. had excellent QSO's today.

Skip was spotty...antenna was in great tune too. Signal was coming in and out, though.
