You could add SSB to it with a Maurer module, then use another Maurer mod to give it lo, mid, hi, +10kc +5kc and UK. And instead of just making it purple, you could make it multi-coloured.
Well the cases on it are already painted in a metallic turquoise green, so that sort of covers that aspect ;) Might do a Youtube video of it one of the days if I can suss out how to do that properly. It should get at least 3 or 4 views!

As for adding SSB, I don't know how to use it to be quite honest, so it'd be a waste of time for me personally. I did actually try and TX on SSB on my Petrusse Homebase a while back to try and contact someone on here thst was having RX issues, but he couldn't hear me..although the salvo of beeps that I let off could be heard by another member on here 80-odd miles away, ground-wave.

It's a real shame that Paul, Ashtec no longer frequents the forum these days. His experience was very helpful (even if I personally didn't have a clue what he was going on about most of the time!).
