    This and the other thread about the Swan 500 makes me want to get busy finding someone
    interested in fixing up the HF 700S I've been fiddling with for years. Good job on what you're doing
    with the 350.

    Go for it! I have a 700CX, and it's a blast to use on the air! I had to work on the Saturday of this past Field Day, and had no energy to go out in the field. So, I used my 700 CX in the 1D class and had some fun on Sunday morning, contacting Field Day stations.

    While Photobucket is down for maintenance I'll provide a short update....

    The power supply is assembled, ohmmeter checks are good, so there appears to be no obvious mistakes.
    Re-assembly went fast and was problem free. the cable clamp and a wire tie were replaced, when the power supply is remounted in the speaker cabinet the cable clamp therein will also be replaced. I'll do that a bit later, there are a few things I want to do around the house first....
    Lets see if Photobucket is up..................................
    Ah they are back...

    The board was installed in the chassis and the wires connected...

    I enjoy working on this stuff, and they are good sounding radios. :)

    After lunch I shall mate this power supply up with a fine example of a Swan 350 I obtained from a very nice man. :)
    I am very much looking forward to that, maybe have it on the air in time for tomorrow's 75 meter rag chew.

    Yes it works loads to 225W with no effort but..................
    No receiver AGC, but I think I know what that is.
    Will fix tomorrow, or at least find the cause.
    It has been sitting over burning in all afternoon while I and my roommate play FireFall....
