Hi All,

I recently acquired a very nice condition HQ-170.

The owner had disassembled it to give it a cleaning and re capping, it has come into my posession still in pieces and I am not sure how the front panel mounts.

Does anyone have a couple of photo's of the panel mounting with the rear housing off?

Also does anyone know of any sort of stencil to repair some rubbed off dial markings around the control knobs?

Thanks for any and all help.

If you do not have the manual for the HQ-170, you
can download it free at the following link:

http://bama.edebris.com/manuals/hammarlu/hq170a/

Removal and installation of the front panel starts
on page 39 of the manual.

Silk screening is about the only way to make the
front panel original. This, as you may know,
is quite expensive. However, there is a ham who
makes front panel "overlays". The link to his
website is listed below. Although his specialty is
Heathkit, you will notice he may make an overlay
for your panel. Click on the "FAQ" icon and read the
last question at the bottom of the page. Contact
him for further details. From what I can see, his
overlays are quite amazing. Like they say, a picture
is worth a 1,000 words.
