I hope at least someone here has some experience with the 10b and the cds photocell switching madness.

I want to replace mine, but finding the right cds is maddening. I don't know the specs of the original, and I might just have to open one up, and hope I can get a p/n.

Anyone have any experience with this?

They are mounted on terminal strips inside 1/2inch copper pipe.. I used to get them from an old guy in Michigan where I live but he is retired now.
You always had to extend the leads on them..They aren't difficult to change.
The rest of the tuner is a PITA tho.The IF cans are toroid and they were aligned in sections on a network analyzer so don't tweak any adjustments.
