Technical reports VE7VIC Feb 7, 2011 - We have an issue coming up with the VE7VIC computer controller. The controller is starting to have severe problems with the clock, a hiss has developed on transmit and the squelch tail mute is making a clicking noise. We also had a loud audible whine caused by RF into the audio leads.
If you love boat anchors or the warm glow of a radio tube don't worry you are not alone! There is a support group to help you. Vancouver Island Based vintage radio/tube/audio/ham radio collectors group. This is an informal friendly group and we welcome anyone interested to attend.
