Uses for a dead Dexstar Exciter

Post by boiseengineer(old) » Sat Jun 26, 2010 11:14 pm

Got to wondering if there are any useful parts in that dead exciter sitting at the transmitter.
Having a GPS installed in a computer with a 10 MHz output would be handy.

Any other ideas?

Doorstop? RV Wheelchock? Ebay? Maybe someone needs parts or boards out of it to save another. Just think, you can save the life of an ailing Dexstar somewhere!

If the power supply is still good, I'll take it. I've got a dead one on my bench with a dead PSU, failed CPU fan, and I'd like to replace the HD with a solid state one. Harri$ wants $1700 to do all that.

10. Can keep old yellow pages book from blowing away when used as paperweight. (how many of you get the reference?)
Trim to fit, paint to match, tune for minimum smoke.
