{Collins} Re: 4:1 Knob Set and the 32V-2



Ira,
To start with the pointer is not covered by the knob, the 4:1 knob & gear was offered for the 32V series of transmitters as well as
a few others, I have one on my V3 and it is great, morale of the story is don't knock it until ya have tried it....


Thanks & 73's Dutch

Hi mike
Why would you want to put a 4:1 on the 32V-2?
you will have to do some drilling on the panel and I believe that the
pointer may be covered by the knob skirt etc.and by the end of the day you
gain absolutely nothing.The tuning ratio as it is, is excellent. An
unnecessary investment of a $125.00. or more.
