    Re: LED conversion Astra IIIB

    Led conversion should be easy.  The resistor will not be very effective at
    limiting the intensity - there should be a resistor to limit the current
    to the design spec of the particular LED selected though.  Calculte as
    follows R= (VB - VL)/IB  VL = LED voltage drop; VB = battery voltage, IB =
    specified LED current.
