Re: [Histonet] neon bulb array help

From:Rene J Buesa

  Another important thing though.
  With those bulbs you will be able to determine "hot" and "cold" spots in you EMPTY microwave oven, but the moment you introduce ANY water load or specimen in it, that determination so painstakingly obtained IS USELESS since that same water load or the specimen will completely change the way the heat is distributed in your microwave oven.
  Once I was able to find that out I stopped wasting my time with bulb arrays.
  Hope this will help you!.

Hi Histonetters!
Anyone out there trying to make their Neon Bulb Array so that they can
test theor microwaves energy pattern is going to find that Radio Shack
doesn't carry that size bulb anymore and hasn't replaced it with another

Sooo, because the Microwave Toolbook doesn't really give a description
of that bulb, just the Radio Shack part number, I'm at a loss.

Does anyone know what the specs are on that neon bulb or know an
identical part number. I'm sure Lowes or Home Depot must sell them, but
I don't even know what to ask them for.
