Unhappy Racal RA1772 not working!

Hi folks.

I won't bother to elaborate at the moment but come straight to the point.My treasured RA1772 was working one day then not the next! It appeared to be working but does not tune into any stations, I can only hear background noise. (Yes the antenna is connected!) I don't have the equipment let alone the knowledge to find out what's wrong. Is there anybody out there who can repair these receivers or perhaps knows someone who can? I would be most grateful to hear from you.

Many thanks.

Try Rob Filby. He's the Racal guru, and is active (from time to time) on . But there are others there who are knowledgeable on that forum too regarding the 1772.

I won't tell you how I discovered that.

There was a similar request a year ago here.

That thread is now closed but you might try the original poster to see if he had any success.
Could be something simple but without any test gear at all it wlould be impossible I guess.
If you have someone nearby with a scope dvm it would be handy.

Depends how much of a rush you are in - I also live in Hitchin, and have some experience of other Racal models - I would be happy to take a look at it for you, but as I say, wouldn't be offering a rapid turnaround
Engineers make things work and have spare bits when finished
