I just picked this unit up for a song and a dance, 30 dollars to be exact, it cleaned up real good and looks like new.....

 This is my first non tube scope , now I'm giving away my age LOL.... I had a small stroke 9 years ago or so , and I'm getting back into the electronics game.....

But that's not my issue .....  My calibration point is only showing 1 Volt....   Any suggestions ????

Howdy Buddy,

I really enjoyed you working on this radio.  I think the electronic build up on the negative side is due to electron flow from positive to negative.  Maybe you can answer me a question.  I just recently got my upgrade from Technician to General Ham license.  I got a Kenwood TS-430S HF rig with a dedicated power supply PS-430 to go with it.  If I want to use 10 meters and pull up a 10 meter repeater how do I use a CTSCC tone since my Kenwood radio has no CTSCC tones???  Thank you for all yer videos.

Hi guys,
I have a JC PENNEY 6241 radio.
It is a 40 channel AM SSB radio.
When I received it the transmit did not work, I then proceeded to undo all of the modifications such as clarifier extra channels and put it back to stock. I believe I got everything out, now It transmits and receives but it's about 7 KC's low on frequency, checked with freq counter and my spectrum analyzer, idea of what I might do to get this thing on freq ??

Here's a link up on one of my websites to the same photo facts for this model, if you guys would like to dig into the schematic.

Hi folks. I know this is an older post, but I found the video very interesting. I recently dug my Eico 147 out and dusted it off. Plugged it in, and immediately got the bad hum. Trying to source the filter caps, I noticed a huge difference between prices with radial and axial caps. Am I missing something? Would I be able to get away with just using radials?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
I could not stand seeing that scratch. So removed the front panel, sanded and repainted it.

That sounds like the RF final amplifier transistor is out.
This is a RF module. Sometimes the ceramic substrate cracks.  You can remove it, take the plastic case off and see if you can see a crack.

Have a look at this page for an example.
