599SP-II Black Front Panels Available
- Aug 9, 2014
I've received many requests for SP-2 black front panels, which some owners prefer to the original supplied gray panels. I've now received one hundred newly manufactured SP-2 front panels with a black textured powder-coated finish and white lettering. These have been custom manufactured for me by Ten-Tec (who made the original panels), and are exactly the same as the originals except for the color. The price is $25 per panel, plus $5 domestic shipping by USPS Priority Mail. The panels can be ordered from the Harbach Electronics website, which is now set up to receive orders. You can check out a photo of the new panels on the StationPro website at http://www.w8zr.net/stationpro/index.htm Soon, I'll post detailed instructions for swapping out the panels for the original panel. These panels can also be ordered with SP-2 kits for an additional $20, with no extra shipping charge. I'm quite pleased with how these turned out. They're very sharp looking.
As you may recall, my SP-2 kits were sold out this past April. I have now restocked the PCBs and these are again for sale as usual (for $220, with the original gray panels, or $240 with the new black panels. Sorry for the price increase on kits with the black panels, but their costs were higher because of the smaller quantity ordered.) (Note: These new panels are NOT the same as the limited- production anodized black panels with engraved two-tone lettering I sold a year ago. Those panels sold out in a few days, at three times the cost of these new panels.)
