I spoke to the current club president this morning.
He is going to quietly ask around. We agreed on the 'quietly' part; because Frank gets very embarrassed and uncomfortable around too many people he "remembers, but doesn't remember".
I spent several hours with him yesterday afternoon. A tree limb had fallen and taken out one leg of his G5RV. I put it back up and "tuned up" his rig for him, then another hour or so with him just listening to a net that was in progress on a local wide area linked repeater; on the D700 in my truck. Watching the "I know that voice" look flash across his face, only to be replaced a few short seconds later with "who was that again?"; brought me to tears.
Tuning around on his TS-450, I came across a station that was transmitting CW at a really fast WPM. It amazed me when I first met Frank, how he could listen to that and copy it all in his head. I asked him if he could tell what the two stations were talking about. For about 2 minutes, it was like the fog lifted. He picked up a pencil and started writing. I'd turned on his computer and started up a program that can decode CW from the audio stream. For the 2 minutes when his brain was cooperating; he got more of the conversation right than the computer did! I was lucky if I could pick out a letter or a number occasionally.
While I happen to be thinking about it; if I happen across a control head for the TM741a that's broken...does anyone have any experience with getting one repaired? Is everything in it surface mount parts (that would be my guess), or is there something in it that us mere mortals stand a chance at being able to de-solder and replace?
Thanks to everyone who's taken the time to reply and offer suggestions! This kind of response, is what makes the ham radio community so great; and something I'm proud to be a part of!
