I've sold quite a few Hickok's, only one buyer wanted the solid state, in 600.
I had calibrated with tthe 83 in it, then put in the SS, which I'd have to look at the resistor values in my notes, thinking they were 3 watt 10 ohm.
The design discussed on here too many times.
Absolutely no changes needed on calibration check switching to SS.
I know many disagree and swear it affects readings, but that is false on the 600.
The key is probably the resistor value depending on the model.

(delivering what the customer wants, not physco's on a forum)

me, I could care a less what's in it, as long as it works.
Not like it's a "precision" 1% instrument to begin with, so if a reading is off slightly, how would you even know? LOL

Too many people try to over-achieve on things you really can't.
Will my lawnmower go 100mph? sure in the back of a truck
