    Spring Storms ... BLIP!

    Or more like BLIP! BLIP! BLIP! BLIP!

    Some boomers moved thru here early today and the whole neighborhood flashed quickly several times before going out for a few minutes. Glad I invested in the NON-LATCHING gfci adapter for the tube stuff. That shut down on the first blip, and stayed that way till I manually reset it after all the commotion was over.

    Just a friendly reminder ... it's that time of year. SAVE THE TUBES! That quick cycling without allowing the caps to drain properly can be a killer!

    Still less than $20 ...

    Thanks sKiZ:

    I just ordered mine, in yellow: its a little cheaper than white, and with free shipping. We get some real thunderboomers here in Minnesota!

    I'll be sure to break it in for a full week before hooking up my VTA ST-70!! jocolor

    Gregg, you should get it cryoed while you're at it...  Wink   I bet the yellow color makes the mids brighter and sunnier than the white one, too.
