As with the AN/URM-25D I picked up at the swap, I cleansed and "newed" the Heathkit IG-18 as well. Need to get this off the books, so here's the "after" shots of this beast:
The Heathkit initial checkouts and adjustments were done and it performs just dandy but I still do not like the meter calibration. It seems difficult to get all frequency settings to agree. But that can be left for a rainy day as it will be an opportunity to do my original IG-18 as well.
