I agree with the WD40.  I'm retired and all I do is work on old 
radios...broadcast and ham rigs.  All I ever use is WD 40.  And to shine up an 
old dirty chassis try PB Blaster and fine sand paper.  PB blaster is meant for 
busting loose rusty bolts but is works fine on a chassis.

I have some noisy potentiometers on a Yeasu FRG-7700 receiver, along with a 
noisy RF gain pot on my HQ-170. What's the best stuff to apply to it to help 
clean and quiet these pots? I have two flavors of DeoxIt --D-series and 
S-series. Do I need the F-series for this, or is one of these a good choice, or 
is there something else better?

I'm sure this will get me hammered, but I've tried all sorts of stuff, and WD40 
is superior to any of them. Don't over do it. It takes very little.

Hi Darrell,

Yes, I've heard that very same thing here, too...

Hey, if it works for you, WTH, right...?!
