Excellent point

I, too, have two doxies, btw. Naughty little creatures, but they're fun.

i hope it didn't blow up, and you got injured, gasoline vapors are pretty powerful, and i'm not sure how much of an explosion gasoline vapors contained within the relay covers would make, but probably enough to blow the covers off, and possibly damage the relays, hopefully not enough to cause personal injury!. we haven't heard back from you!.

Been on a weird work schedule, so I haven't had a chance to power the thing up. Turns out this tuner actually has roller inductors with motors in it, and a handful of relays. Looks like a nice unit, so hopefully it survives. I've actually never used it, and wasn't intending to. Got it as a package deal with a radio and antenna and was planning to ebay the tuner.

Motorized roller inductors, huh?
Pretty neat!
What brand is it?

I assumed the 2 motors were driving roller inductors, but looking at the schematic it doesn't show motors or inductors. It's an Icom AT-180.

the inductors are fixed, and selected with relays. the variable capacitors are tuned with MF1 and MF2, the motors. »96.9.26.247/schemi/ACC_matching/···user.pdf
