Okay.  I just wanted to make sure that Darrell hadn't removed it from the 1MC, because it sort of looks like one diagram in the manual that shows a bunch of transformers and large capacitors.  I think those things "live" behind the panel which is behind the vacuum tubes.  I need to bring a bright flash light with me next time to verify what is behind that panel, but I'm not sure how I'll ever get access back there.

The guy that restored the Silversides unit offered to send us another manual.  I'm hoping it's a little more up to date to our configuarion and easier to read than what the Torsk sent us.  My personal opinion is that unless a piece of equipment is completely rusted through, shot full of holes, cannibalized, or incinerated by a fire, it's repairable.  A bad amplifier could be something as simple as a bad capacitor.

Fred, Thank you that will be a great help.  I will email you from work tomorrow so I have it at my office.  I do not mind using my home address (grizzly_1970@earthlink.net).   It is easier to keep things seperate though.

Rick - I forgot to ask today - did you receive this yet?  Just curious.  I plan to start on the re-write of the tour booklets in May (probably after the reunion) so I'm in no hurry...just curious.

Rick, I've been working on the tour book re-write today...so far it's coming along nicely...should have a rough draft for you on the 19th...and then can have you a PDF when final.  I'm waiting on some literature to come in so I can add more text to the document.

Have you given any thoughts to printing?  I think you mentioned Vo-Tech once...or corporate sponsers.

Right now it's at about 18 pages and could go up or down...

I am working with the Vo Tech school.  If I have them do it we are looking at fall time frame before printing.  This may be the case for all printing as we get our City cash in the fall and I want to get our cash ahead of our expenses.  I am still not refraining from using a sponsor at this time. 

What size are you going for.  The ones we have are standard 8x11.  did you consider a 4x5.5?  just a thought.

8.5x11 again...a page size change would really cause me a bunch of headaches right now... buck2

I think you'll like the new format, it's color coded to match the website color as I'm trying to get some type of recognizeable consistencey.

Do you think you might put it up on the Batfish website?

Probably not.  We put them out in the museum for purchase to help raise $$$.  If I post it on the site, then that defeats the purpose as they could d/l it for free.  It's basically a scaled down version of the website's virtural tour (which I am currently updating).

I'd be happy to email you a copy of the PDF version...but I don't think I'll put it on the website.

Rick - I'll email you the PDF tonight when I get home...to your home address.

Ahh, completely understood.  I hope the new booklet will be a real money-raiser then.   Smiley
