View Full Version : Newbee, but Oldie - Looking for assistance on my Courier Gladiator

05-11-2017, 08:55 PM
Hello, I've had this Courier Gladiator since new. Seems like forever but is probably about only (?) 40+ years. Don't use it much as it's in my Suburban and taken only on long trips. Just realized that the meter is not illuminated any more. I saw a few Youtube videos and they do, indeed, show a lighted meter. I brought it into a local electronics shop and they had no idea how, if it can be done, to replace that light/bulb. Seems that it is part of a large housing and they cannot get to the bulb easily. This is the meter just below the "On Air" light that goes on when the mic is keyed.
Any help on this unit would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

most people would probably just retrofit it with an LED
