Default ISO: Parts layout and/or picture of a Midland 79-265...


I recently picked up a really clean Midland 79-265 AM/SSB mobile for a song and dance, but someone hacked the little ferrite donut in the back near the antenna jack... might anyone have one of these radios that can either take a picture or get a parts layout of the back of the chassis? I have no idea what this little part looks like... just going by the little drawing on the PCB. I need a visual, so I can try to locate this piece, or make one. I jumpered over where it was supposed to be, and the radio works alright, but I want to get it original if I can. Any assistance in this matter would be wonderful. Thanks!

P.S. If anyone has a junk 79-265, I'd be willing to buy also.

I have two of these radios, I believe my dad bought them used, although I suppose it is possible that they were new also, from our neighbor who had all kinds of radio stuff. This was probably 12-14 years ago. Currently the one transmists at about 2.7 watts and receives fine but has never been tested on teh side bands. The other transmits at the full 4 watts and comes in loud and clear, but does not receive transmissions at all and has not been tested on the sidebands. Would love to get them both working well again.

Looks like it's just a ferrite donut with 2 wires strapped over it, that'll be an easy fix. You mention you need a channel knob, are you needing the knob itself? Or the whole channel selector? Let me know, and I can try to look up something for you. These radios can also be modded for extra channels too. Mine is already modified for reg. band and +40 (27.415-27.855). Thanks for the pictures!
