Re: Source for Reverse Log Pots
"Howdy, wunderin' if any one can steer me towards some REVERSE log potentiometers, 1 meg and the elusive 150K."
If you can live with the weirdness, just wire up a standard Log pot but swap the outside wires. The sweep will be reverse but the taper will be correct. You can position the knob so it sweeps from 11:00 ccw to 1:00. Don't know where to find a 150K log pot but a 250K Log and a couple resistors could probably simulate one.
