maybe if you skip the dipping in oil they remain grayish-blackish.

The xmitter is...???...was a 323W originally.
thats what is on the banana plate.
And, I guess this thing is nickle.
but it looks like chrome. very shiny.
I got the mouth piece last nite! woo hoo, complete phone! happy dance...
it will not thread on to the xmitter :(
It appears, someplace in its life, this xmitter got the s#!t banged out of the threads.bummer.
need a new plan to attach the mouthpiece.
question:
were these 40al sticks supposed to be Common batt?
if so, I need to use it that way.
No prob...I have built a CB switchboard also. ;)

40-AL can be used with a sidetone common battery subset (295A, 534A, 584A, etc.); or a local battery subset (315H, 300K, etc.)

Only thing Is, with the mag config, you only get about 25-30 volts out of it.
and thats with crankin the dog s#!t out of it! lol.
I thot it was dead the first time i tried it.
my switchboard station relays trip at 24vac, I wonder what the application was for this one?
Thanks poplar1!
