Two questions. If you turn the volume full up, and rock the squelch knob from end to end, do you hear a soft "thump" from the speaker?

Second, does the S-meter reveal normal movement from skip, chatter on 19 or channel noise?

Or does it just lay down at zero?

Whups! Forgot to ask if plugging an external speaker into the PA jack, and selecting PA mode gets you audio when keying the mike. Would have saved some time if I had remembered to ask.

If you do have loud PA audio, I suspect Q73 could be bad.

And if you DON'T have any PA audio, the problem is upstream from Q73.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.

    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
