Hello from Vienna !

I have got today a very good FR-50B made by Sommerkamp. Has somebody
some info (I have a manual) about this receiver (built also by Yaesu I
think) ?
Nothing to find in Shortwave Receivers Past and Present. Any Webpage ?
Any Sommerkamp reflector (not for the new hand-helds, hi) ?

I have some problems with the RF gain, which seems to work only very
little (only to hear without disconnected antenna). AGC Voltage is
present. Would also be interested in the connection betwen the Mute
regulator and RF Gain regulator.

I have a picture of this receiver on my webpage (URL below) under
"Receivers => JRC-Realistic-Trio-Sommerkamp" in the left frame after
entering the page.
