Geez, now you're making me want to shelve my existing 37 projects and go
playing with radios. I was in my garage last week, sorting out boxes from
old moves, and found that cute little spline-shaft knob from an ARC-5 of some
sort that I used to have, I hope I find the ARC-5 itself next. I have a dim
recollection of building my own power supply for it out of an aluminum project
box, since I didn't have the official power supply, and I had to drill out some
banana jacks to fit the weird mica-insulated connector on the ARC-5 since the
prongs were a bit thicker. But I don't think I ever got it actually working...
