This Zenith could mistakenly be called a Globe Trotter and it IS NOT a model to butcher unless it is beyond repair.

I see that Voyager II has joined Voyager I in traversing our heliosphere to reach interstellar space...  https://www.outsidethebeltway.com/voyager-2-enters-interstellar-space/

The spacecraft was launched ~41 years ago and is approximately 12 billion miles from earth in a very dark and cold place yet continues to operate in Ultimate DX Mode.

I offer this news with a point to ponder:  Since it still works at least most of the original capacitors are still good.  And it was built by the lowest bidder.

Go Figure.
