Browning receiver, signal was a bit too strong.

As the old guys would say "Measure once, cut twice".

Checking to see that you have the right coax on the right radio can prevent faults like this.


Yeah, this coil is connected directly to the center pin of the Browning receiver's antenna socket. Not sure how many Watts of RF you need to cause this problem, but it's a receiver. You're not supposed to transmit directly into it. Pretty sure that's what caused the issue.

The replacement is not built from the same materials. The coil form is resin-treated paper, not thermoplastic like the melted one.


Works better, though.
