Hi all,

I just received a new [to me] pre-built K1 (S/N 3027) complete with the original manual (to include the check marks and various build data).

I put together a chart of all the band ranges and noticed that 30M is way off.

40M 6997.6 - 7091.1

30M 9997.7 - 10084.3

20M 13989.9 - 14083.5

17M 18038.8 - 18132.5

---------------------------

I've been away from radio for a number of years, but I am pretty sure that 30M is 10100.0 - 10150.0.

Other details:

Though there is no note as to which Cap  was used for the VFO range, I can assume it was 68pF due to the range test data (and the findings above) of 2099 through 3093 for a range of 94 kHz.


Any ideas for my 30M predicament?

Thanks
