He reports he is happy with it. He seems happy as I heard no complaints.. I have heard no complaints. This gentlemen wrote back with "beautiful radio".He needs an AC4 power supply. He has the rig now and no complaints. He received the station successfully via UPS air. Unit is going UPS two day air. I went thru this Tempo One and cleaned it up extensively. Took off the front panel, all the knobs, lens. Tempo One receiving very well. Here is a video of reception on 40m and 20m. Hours of careful listening and testing and tweaking to perfection. It looks really nice now in the front at least. I removed what was left of the front plastic cover that came with it on the front as that plastic was all rotted.
All the controls look to move well too. Replaced the two bulbs with 12 volt white LED bulbs. This rig receives on all bands. Good power on Transmit on all bands. I have become somewhat of an expert on refurb of the Henry Tempo One / FT200 after weeks of study and fixing three of them.I have restored three of these Henry Tempo One's recently. I have replaced C55 with a brand new mica 100pf cap at 1000V and C40 with two 100pf caps at 1000V in parallel for 200pf Total. Tuned all the bands for performance at the middle of the band and the GRID control at 12 o'clock for optimum receive. 40 meters on these can be tough to get perfect but once you figure out the alignment then this rig is an outstanding. Again look up moviestudioland Tempo One on youtube for how I refurb these rigs. It comes with black case too which is in some of the photos and looks really nice with flat black paint. What is great about the Tempo One / FT200 is the build quality.
The controls feel very solid in your hands. The receive is very impressive. If you like the Drake TR4 you will love this rig. It is smaller than the TR4 and it probably receives a little better.Well I need to compare the TR4 and this Henry Tempo one and see which one is really better. But this rig is a pleasure to use.
It is no nonsense and just works. Like the Drakes - the dial calibration is right smack on.This rig is a lot smaller than a Drake TR4 and pretty much has the same features. Perhaps a better receiver too. Note you will need a power supply. Completely cleaned, aligned and tested. Well known issues with FT200's corrected. I replaced C55 with a 100pf 1KV capacitor.
I replaced C40 with a 200pf 1KV capacitor (2 100pf in parallel). This Henry Tempo One / Yaesu FT200 receives very well. Spent a lot of time completely aligning the receive.
NO mic and NO power supply. You will need a mic and a power supply. If you want to experience the Henry Tempo One again - the one you owned a LONG time ago. The pictures prove it out. C55 and C40 which are known to cause issues are REPLACED.
