    I have a Uniden Washington with the MB8719 PLL. In AM mode I have great receive but no TX at all. No output, mod, or nothing! In SSB mode radio receives great and puts out 15 watts just fine.

    This was a old friends radio that he talked on everyday then all of a sudden nothing. Radio has been modded for extra channels with a three position band switch.
    Were should I first start checking?
    AM Regulator?
    Finals?

    HELP!!!

    Thanks again guys,
    W4BSS

    It looks like a Golden Screwdriver & Soldering Iron got loose in this radio.

    I really can't stand to see radios of this cailber in this condition either. All hacked up - what a shame!

    Might check 2sc1419 and the 2sc945 next to it. IIRC, that would be TR42 & 41. The 1419 is mounted on the frame on the far right corner. That part should be upgraded to an NTE152. But please check that info first, as I am just going off of the top of my head at the moment.
