maybe sparky will replace it . i do wish it had a higher value cap so the talkbck could be completely eliminated or a switch . but its very very handy for getting an eye deer (hehe) of the echo level and modulation clarity on radios that dont have talkback .
it certianly doesnt replace a QUALITY radio check though .

booty,

nice setup!

is your meter light burnt out on that washington?
looks like it is.

i know you dont like to get inside radios, but this is one of the easiest repairs ever!

its called a grain of wheat bulb and you might even be able to get one at radio shack.
they're not polarized so you cant possibly hook it up wrong.

c'mon, give it a shot. LOL

theres a red one in it , sometimes if flicks on for a nanosecond then off till....... . so its just a short .
ill replace it . i was told to use a 12 volt led but i didnt see one at radio shack . if they have one that will work properly and you could post a link from their online catalog to it so i know EXACTLY what im looking for ill name my first born after you .

ill want to replace it with a regular white one , when the red one worked it didnt provide enough illumination for my taste , so i would have wanted to replace it anyhow .
i did swap a larger dial on the clarifier for less touchy and easier fine tuning on SSB .

Get a 5mm white one and add a 470 ohm resistor to it.

5mm White LED - RadioShack.com

The resistor goes on the anode (the longer of the two leads or opposite the flat side of the led).
