Yes, I know - the radio had a lot of flaws. But warts and all, I love(d) it and would like to get it repaired.
Not sure what happened - or why - but when I fired up the little square box a few days ago, the freq display read 49.999 MHz. All the memory freqs were gone & any attempt to restore them failed. I checked the little button battery and found it was totally dead. Aha, I thought, but no...replacing the battery did not fix the problem.
If anyone knows of a repairman for these rigs I'm all ears.
