In the late eighties, I bought a SR 400 A with HA 20 out of the Ham Trader Yellow Sheets. (Remember them?) When I received it I discovered it had been thru the hands of Bob Orwin.(W9YKA. I think. Can't read his handwriting) in 1986. Formerly an engineer with Hallicrafters.

It had been "converted?" to be used as a CB xceiver! The owner Jack Jasensky KD9NA, had sent it to Bob to be fixed. There were a few improvements made by Bob and this radio is really fantastic. The Rx, especially, is nice. Quiet and very sensitive. I received all the notes Bob had made on the repair, as well as a two page letter, an invoice for the repairs, and a note from Jack KD9NA to Ron, the guy I bought it from. (Don't remember his last name or call) I have reproduced all this into a single file which follows this dialog.
