Default Yeasu FRG-7700 needing repair. (Leicester)

Hi Folks,

I have a Yaesu FRG-7700 shortwave receiver from about 1981 that needs some attention.

It was working well until a few months ago when I moved it from one side of the room to the other. After the move I left it switched off for a number of weeks as the antenna cable wouldn't reach the new spot.

When I finally got the new cable and turned on the receiver it wasn't working properly.

The symptoms are:-
The S meter sits around 3.2
There is sound coming out of the speaker but it is just a hiss.
The frequency display jumps around from below 1mhz to 34mhz every second or so.
The tuning knob has no effect.
Changing the mode switch changes the S level but no real effect.

Can anyone return this much loved unit to health?


Thanks,

Andy.
