    Picked up the radio tonight. Was working good. Talked on it got good reports etc. Brought it home, hooked everything up and the radio does nothing. All you hear is a popping noise from the speaker. No lights etc.

    Any idea what blew ?

    The eight volt regulator is notorious for having bad or cold solder joints, mounted on the side of the chassis frame. Also check B+ rails for any breakage or cracks, these come from the 12 volt input along the side of the pc board.

    make sure you have not screwed a thumbwheel in too far and bust the trace that feeds the 8v regulator, i have had to fix a couple for locals with overlong thumbwheels.
