My buddy saved a Heathkit DX-100B from going to the dump.
I got it gratis from him, as it then showed up in the trunk of my auto.

The condition of the rig is fair minus, although cosmetically it's OK.
Front panel is in pretty good shape, but has an added meter same size as,
and right next to original meter, neatly done.  (I think the owner
wanted to monitor two circuit parameters at the same time.)  There are
no bumps or dings on it, paint is mostly OK.

All controls move easily and seem mechanically OK.  Clear plastic right
ahead of VFO dial missing; VFO control moves smoothly.  A small push
button switch was neatly added to opposite side of front panel--I am
guessing it's a frequency spotting switch.  Chassis is quite dusty,
small amount of rust. Under the chassis, wiring job looks good, done I'd
say by an experienced ham.  Area is clean.  According to a pencilled
note, unit assembled Christmas 1958.

IMO this set is certainly fully restorable, as it is complete, with cabinet. I can email pix of it if wanted.

There's no way I will fire this unit up using just a variac.  It deserves the
full suspended-animation emergency room revival, e.g. tubes removed, HV
caps checked for leakage, lots of cold circuit resistance checks, AC
power applied with no load on power supply, etc..

The price is right--FREE!

Good overview at:  http://www.heathkit-museum.com/ham/hvmdx-100.shtml

Consider this one of my contributions to preserving our Boat Anchor heritage.
If I had the room in my 9 x 12' ham shack, I'd keep it.  Already have a Johnson Ranger if I want to do BA AM.
No way I'm going try and ship this baby (100 lb.), pick up only, just south of Calgary, Alberta.
