There will be a *lot* of weird things to debug and associated tear downs to find them. Having a fragile bulb coating to deal with on top of everything else might just be more than can be dealt with.

It is worth knowing that active masers have a span for how the hydrogen 
in-flux will make it oscillate or not. Too little or too high, and the 
oscillation will die off. It may be one of the things to tune up if you 
got an older one which needs a bit of good old Love, Tender and Care.

If you don't dare, I can pass you the appropriate address for it. ;-)
