OK, will do. I think the filter capacitor is gone. I get a hm coming
thru the speaker when I turn the vfo to OPR. Will check that later.

I retubed the receiver. Still no luck with the reception. I think
I'll try to clean the knobs too, but I haven't a clue as to the
oscillators, and what to do. I can't understand why it would work
so well on Saturday, and quit on sunday with nothing. Something
else is strange about it. The volume control does produce a noticeable
hiss, but the RF gain does nothing. I don't know if the meter is supposed
to see received sigs, but I get no deflection when a strong signal
comes in, at least not that I noticed on Saturday. The meter does work in
transmit mode. I am going to wait until tonite to get the unit operating
on 40 meters tho. Could just be the band is closed out, but I should be
hearing something. OK, I'll keep you posted. Still ain't sure yet, but
I honestly think I'm beginning to have fun :). 73, ttyl.
