Happy New Year to all,
This morning I had a scheduled 2 Meter  QSO/experiment with another amateur 
north of San Francisco. 
I was disappointed to find that someone had  broken the plate tuning knob 
on my 2 meter amplifier.  It appeared that  someone had rotated the tuning 
knob to its extremes and snapped the  shaft, but not before jamming the two 
plates together.  It takes  many turns of the tuning knob to get to each 
extreme and cause the plates to  come in contact with each other.
Unfortunately I discovered this very shortly  after applying 3000V to the 
tube.  Not a pleasant experience.  

My last visit to the clubhouse was on Oct. 11 and  the amplifier was in 
good working order.  More than likely the damage was  not from a licensed, 
experienced amateur or club member. Although more  than a couple of months have 
passed since my last visit, an examination of the clubs log yielded some 
clues as to what  may have happened. The damage could have  occurred during the 
JOTA exercise on Oct. 17.  Youthful curiosity with  knobs,  combined with 
an inadvertent, momentary lack of a control  operator or supervision in the 
radio room could have resulted in the  mishap.  
I will begin troubleshooting and repair this  week.
Enough said...
We did complete the experiment using my 2 meter  brick amplifier.
