Astron designed into its supplies some overvoltage/transient protection that probably saved the day as far as damaging the LM-723 and the pass transistors.
and whoda-thunk? 20 years later and I'm happy they did.
You also might want to look for a plastic TO-3 case cover. That way, you'll help keep the collector/case protected from inadvertent contacts.
I put some red, good, electrical tape there for the time being. Will search for T0-3 cover(s)

tnx for the support.
now, if anyone just knew anything about POE to my IPCAM. I want to mount it underneath one of the 432 yagi's but power never gets to it over ethernet cable. I will write a new "ticket# in the hopes there is an Elmer for Power-Over-Ethernet. Would be a nice way to know I am pointing at the moon when it's not cloudy anyway.
