    Thanks for helping him out!

    Gary - I have used u alot several years ago when my shop was in NY. Couldnt get in touch w u anymore, and I had a hunch something bad happened. I just recently got back into Ham radio and muddling my way :confused: and glad to hear u are still around....though on limited duty.

    Jim W5JO has posted to the AM reflector this news:

    Many of you know that Gary Brown, WZ1M, who owned Transformer Rewinding
    Service, retired recently and is moving to a warmer climate. He was our
    best source of transformers at reasonable prices.

    Well it seems as if his legacy may be continuing. I certainly hope so.


    This looks like good news!

    I sure hope the new guy is up to it as HV is a completely different world to master and then move into modulation transformers and chokes and it becomes more complicated than counting turns.

    Agree. I'm hoping Gary will provide training if needed or make himself available for consulting -- the best would have been if they had partnered for a couple years but too late for that it seems. We'll have to see what happens.

    Gary just informed me that the guy who bought the business had a heart attack shortly thereafter.

    See what plate modulation leads to, go screen modulation!
