Re-Tubing Galaxy V K9BW on 30/10/14
I have worked on a number of Galaxy rigs over the years, predominantly the Galaxy V Mark III, and a bunch of GT550's. I own two complete GT550 lines, and have never experienced what you mention, not in Swan, Drake, Heath, or a dozen other tube radios. I suspect the filaments may have burst upon powering up, and maybe some didn't power up due to bad filament transformers (6v and 12v). If you are going to re-tube it, I would recommend that you power the radio up slowly. Good luck... w3ik
