REAL radios glow without smoke.

Yaesu FT-707 quick test after repairs... Was a dead receiver and PLL out of lock.
The repaired Otari MX-5050.  Power supply and control board faults all now good.  Lube and calibration done.


Testing the Marantz 3800 Pre-Amp after repair and replacement of an obsolete op-amp chip with a home made modern chip plugin.. Checkout the gallery pics...


  Using the repaired MX-5050 as audio source


Working on a Yaesu FT-200.  Receiver fault, ALC fault, dead transmitter and a general alignment followed by an on-air test


Yaesu FT-101E after receiver repair and faulty noise blanker repair.  Note the noise floor at +10dB/9 until noise blanker switched on drops the floor to S1 and you can hear the station in the distance comes up to S9 from nearly unreadable.
Before and after for a TEAC A3340 deck.  Bad switches, dead bearings, dry oil and grease turned to glue are just a few of this machines problems.  But with time all comes back to full working order again.
4 Channel testing time.  TEAC A3440 in record to lay down a track, then TEAC A3340 to play the track back and compare audio levels and quality...
All videos here shot with a crappy phone camera...  Enough said!

Revox B225 high end early model CD player proving the manual wrong...

This can play some CDRs and can run longer than 74mins..

Saja Export Mk5 tape player circa 1958...

Restoration completed with a quick blast of it playing alone and with external amplifier...

Audio is a bit rough as it was too load for the phone recording the video.
