The cited References are for the R-390A.

John, which is it you have?

*IF* it is the R-390A, then the break-in relay *IS* K-601 in the AF Module.

>> Thanks for the source of information, Jerry. I have looked at the schematic on the Y2K site and see relay 601, the break in relay. Now I must physically locate it and determine if the relay is indeed bad. I have 12.95 vac at terminal 9 on the terminal board  on rear of R390. 
> Not sure of the age or condition of your 390, but you might also just try pulling and reseating P120/J620 on the audio chassis.  Among other stuff, this connector carries the operating voltage to the Break-in relay, K-602.  (K-601 is actually the squelch relay).  Both relays just ground the audio out from the AF amplifier V-601 through the interstage transformer T-601.
