There have been numerous articles in QST over the years on
rebuilding these old rigs. I found an article which I saved
somewhere on building transistor substitutes for the tubes. you
could build them on small perf boards and set up a set of wires
that corresponded to the pin out on the tubes. At one time,
someone was making modules to replace all the low power and
receiving tubes on the Collins S line. That was at least 40 years
ago. I don't do well on a lot of these tiny connections anymore
due to age and aging eyes, but my history skills are still largely
PS: Still awaiting shipment on my Bitx.
