Because that radio VFO's not going anywhere.
A new transmitter/transceiver VFO display dial.
Better than ever.
Upgrade your HG-10(B) VFO display. This is an upgrade for the Heathkit HG-10 and HG-10B VFO backlit scale, part number 464-19. There were a few aftermarket replacement/repair scales, but we found that none of them performed like the original. So we didn't just reissue the original--we decided to create an upgrade.
Count the improvements. This improved scale is translucent, which allows the original backlight scheme to work without any modifications. We also made the scale a bit shorter in height, so that alignment and viewing angle are improved.
Totally tubular. The printed scale is inside the clear tube. Why? Because now the dial indicator can't scratch off any of the printing from the scale. And the dial sheet will maintain its circular shape. It will never separate from the tube as it ages.
Looking good. You can see from the example pictures of each band below that visibility and viewing angle has been greatly improved. Great care was taken in the transfer of the individual frequency markers from an original to the replacement scale.
40 meter CW gets you around the region in the evening. (Try AM too.)
Our most reliable DX band throughout the sunspot cycle: 20m.
Try 15m at dawn and dusk for some great DX.
10m: Always more here than you think. Call CQ often.
6m: The Magic Band. Don't just sit there, call CQ.
2m. Amazing to think your HG-10(B) VFO takes you up here. But it does.
Old scale (top) and improved scale in this kit (below).
The graphic quality and readability improvement alone are worth the effort. Upgrade now.
The tube and scale inserts will have you on your way in no time at all.
It's all here.
Each kit includes the clear replacement tube, a printed scale, and full instructions for upgrading your frequency scale. (See photo on the left: Original design is on top, improved design of this new kit below it, with better viewing angle and graphics.)
So go on up and find that Add to Cart button. Let's get your HG-10(B) in tip-top shape and have some fun on the bands again.
