I just picked up a nice
R-1000 receiver. The only problem is that the dial
lites for the s-meter and the analog dial are apparently burned out.
know what type of bulbs were used and how easy it might be to replace
I have ordered a users manual which might have this info. Radio is
sensitive and selective. I assume it has had the mod to use the ssb
in AM position. Any help would be appreciated.
Tnx es 73,

There are a total of
three lamps in your R-1000. Two lamps are CLEAR (Meter
+ Dial) and One is GREEN (Mode). These lamps are "grain of wheat"-types
come with leads and connector.

12 volt Grain A Wheat's
with gel covers.
I modified mine, and
a ATS 818/DX-390 to use 5000 MCD white and green LED's
(however to do this correctly you will need to get the 180 degree
lenses from Mouser)
