Re: {Collins} How to fix sticky S meter?

Has anyone heard from Eldad recently?  I recall very recent postings on
another forum that attempts to reach him have not been successful.

Every time I have tried to "repair" a sticky meter I have made it worse. I
suggest you send it to Eldad, K2AB, for repair. He is fantastic - I have
sent him numerous meters over the years with excellent results. Contact him
at eldadben@xxxxxxxxx

He just repaired a sticky SX-42 S-meter for me.

Merry Christmas!
