The DC paths have been verified correct. The HV works great. I have bid on another wasted HM-102 meter to score another meter movement. So the ONLY reason, other than a dirty antenna relay, that is doesn't work is the probability the tubes are bad. IF they ARE bad, then, rather than buy 2 new 572Bs, I might opt for the GI-7Bs. And, as I have said before, I HAD a SB-200 with 572Bson 6 back in 1975 that worked GREAT! So the project isn't over, I am just catching my wind while getting the 222 Mhz Repeater for our Radio club ready to go to be installed and doing some WORK stuff. There is no time limit on this project. If it doesn't progress for a few days, notta problem. I have NOT given up, just had the wind knocked out of me.
