    Any idea when it was last on? This would be a great project radio, but I already have a similar project radio sitting on the shelf, waiting. If it hasn't been on in years, then I wouldn't put full power to it without conditioning first. Capacitors have likely dried and need to be replaced. There's probably a kit.

    That is why I have not plugged it in. I do not know how long it has been. I hate to take it apart but the parts are worth more then the radio whole.

    Yeah, have you tried listing it on one of the ham boards? Shipping would likely be an issue, because I bet that thing weighs a ton.

    I have not. It is not that heavy but more fragile with the tubes in it. It have a variac. If I get some time this weekend, I may try it out. Been busy with work projects and watching Matlock.
