I'm sure you will be glad to get it back on the air for sure and I'm sure the $75 was well spent on the radio 8>)
I must say it was quite a change when I received my 5000 still had the 7700 a lot of difference. But then this I just had to buy a used K3/100 now have 2 loaded plus a P3/SVGA/KPA500 amp/KAT500 auto tuner/W2 wattmeter/K2/100/KAT100 and soon a KX3 QRP rig oh yes an XG3 signal generator wonderful tool to own for a small bench.
Merry Christmas to ALL and "God Bless"
