Quote from: Ed Morris on May 13, 2017, 02:16:32 PMI do keep most of my radios and use them frequently, and will do the same with phones. The 302 shown above is going down to the house in the country where my wife grew up. I have a Model 500DM from 1981 by the bed and a 2500 spare. My wife doesn't appreciate the ringers, though, so I put on/off switches in the ringer circuit or disconnect it on the older ones.

I didn't connect the copy of that file that I first found and downloaded in 2015 to this one until used you link and found them to be identical, both created in 2012 and the file side is virtually the same.That documented restoration made me put the planned restoration of my ZTO H500 on hold. That was quite an effort and while mine is in much better starting condition, I need time to think and plan before attempting to do it. I found this set at an antique mall two or so years ago and got it for $90 (no shipping so got a complete, clean H500 for $60 or so). The stag is in great condition, nothing to fix, it came with the suction cups, the manual and the complete WaveMagnet. Only get AM but other than a quick, safe, power up, that's all I did. Here it sits on the top shelf in my den waiting for attention. Not the best picture other than showing the condition of the Stag.
