Some one suggested maybe a breaker in the power supply chain, but I dont recognize one.  The ham i got it from "claimed" that it worked. It seemed to, but it wouldnt tune and now no power. I followed tune up proceedure from manual exactly. I was using 80m xtal and antenna. I also have matching vfo. Any Ideas?


Wonder if maybe you were tuning up to a harmonic? Had that happen to
me again recently with an Apache, been years so it caught me off
guard. No idea what the pop was, probably an old cap let go.
