Hello All
Exactly what I was thinking John. And yes indeed, Dan’s suggestion of studying “The Elements of Rado Serviving” is a great idea. I have learned much there.
See the link below, it is on-line on the “World Radio History Site”. And if you are really interested in getting into this great Hobby, A dim bulb tester is a great start, also an Isolation Transformer can save one from personal injury or even ones life. There is much written on-line on the subject o “Safety”. Also a reasonably reliable Multi-Meter is a must, and this does not have to be a high priced FLUKE, although I myself wish I owned one.
