I'm Bob Nagy - AB5N. I, like you, am a owner of the exciting

And yes, I'm still doing these upgrades as of 2014.

a headcold. I've worked out the optimum upgrade at a discounted
price for the HM-133.

Also the IC-7200 & IC-7600's Chinese HM-36 - is muddy. My Type #2 element
works gangbusters in it also. Click here
