Hi,

I posted a detailed request under repairs but...

I was wondering if anyone has or knows of whether Standard still operate and their working web address?

I know they are/were owned by Marantz but searching the net they dont seem to supply Amateur Radios anymore - I am not sure about commercial radios.

Does anyone have a link to somewhere that might service this sort of radio?

Thanks in advance

Might try "Vertex/Standard" i.e. Yaesu.

Thanks. I thought about them after surfing the net. I had not heard of them here and their logo was very different. If I ask the Yaesu people here they will say "huh?" so I might email Yaesu USA.

Thanks VK3TAY

Standard Radio Company in Japan manufactured private label products such as your C528 for a company called Standard Communications.  Standard Radio also owns the Superscope, Marantz, Vertex, and Yaesu brands, but these companies have nothing to do with the company that sold your HT.

Standard Communications' website is http://www.standardcom.com.cnchost.com/

Clint - I posted a detailed problem description under the http://www.eham.net/forums/ModsAndRepairs section as some people dont like you to put those issues in the wrong forum.

W3JJH - thanks for that detailed answer I will try and follow them up and see where I get. I might sell it on eBay and let someone with all the right gear play with it. It is probably just a leaking capacitor - if it is an IC with the problem then it will be impossible to fix....

Thanks Matthew

Yaesu-Vertex isn't interested in repairing the older Standard Amateur rigs.

The best bet for getting these repaired is to contact Matthew Adrian, KD8ZB, 1792 Nash Drive, St. Joseph, MI 49085.  Matt was the service tech for Standard Amateur Radio Technical Service and has a good stock of parts for most of their amateur rigs.

I've used him for several repairs and have been well pleased. I'm sure he that could help you on your C228A.

AS to the Standard Radio line of ham radios, I understand Vertex has bought out Standard.  As someone else said, however, Vertex isn't interested in doing any repairs on old Standard radios.

Hello Dr OM Matthew,

Many thank for sending the circuit diagram and all the scanwork you have
done for me.
But I must say I still have this circuit diagram but was looking for a
drawing of the printed circuit board where you can see the position of the
components.
I've ever seen in the past such drawing!

Do you have an email or fax address of the guy in the USA?

It's a terrible story about my C520.
At first my C520 run very well and a old friend of me ask to repair his one.
I did compair my good one with the defect one of him with a like 'Huntron
Tracker' instrument.
What happens my one didn't run on 2 meter anymore.
Then I did buy a second one from an advertise working 100 percent but don't
use it for the last years and switch it on 2 weeks ago and what happens? The
same problem, doesn't lock on the VHF-band.
In the past I did buy a pll-ic in Germany for over 50 dollar without succes.
So now I have 3 C520 handhelds not complete working.

Till so far Matthew, I hope you understand my English, '73 es tnx fer ur
help fm a cold and windy summer in the Netherlands, Roeland, PA0RBC
