Radios with internal amplifiers - pros and cons Could a decline in CBer's be a good thing for the hobby? In an amp it is a 2N transistor.

It's a hard little bugger to spot!! So far I appreciate 3 of you and your help and suggestions.

This essentially creates a chorus effect, a louder and fuller tone, as well as an overall more rich sound that simply can't be produced by its six string counterpart. This very fact made it a popular instrument for early blues musicians, most notably Lead Belly often dubbed the "King of the 12 string" who appreciated its loud, natural sound without the need for additional amplification.

Those not content with standard tunings can enjoy a variety of tuning options on a 12 string guitar. From lush open tuning with near orchestral tones, to the captivating sounds of down-tuning, to the legendary Nashville tuning, with its jangle qualities, the possibilities with a 12 string guitar are nearly limitless. Traditionally played in folk, rock and other forms of popular music, 12 string guitars have always been enjoyed by a wide spectrum of performers.

Some of the world's greatest musicians, including Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Robert Smith, Melissa Ethridge, Thom Yorke, John Lennon and more have used the unique sound of the 12 string guitar to create some of the most memorable music of all time.

It is complicated and that is why it was short lived when the chassis came out in late I waited a little longer before posting any more, in the hopes that some other members might give a few additional clues to look for.

So far I appreciate 3 of you and your help and suggestions. You mentioned only the schematic in the PM, so I'm unsure what you're now offering but it was appreciated just the same. N9EFJ has the schematic posted on his website already, although I'll admit it's hard to read because it's somewhat blurred in my display. About the similarities to other radios, yes according to N9EFJ's website, I believe he heads one webpage with the following radios essentially being the same: I received additional help from both of these two gentleman and a special extra thanks, it was greatly appreciated.

The problem with your radio is C It is a small blue tantalum cap right between the two wires that permit adjusting the bias to the finals. It shorts all the time. There are is a 2. It should be replaced with 2. Make sure it's 50V. The radio might need a recapping, bing it is close to 30 years old. If you can't do it yourself, forget it, because it will cost too much money in labor. I do them myself. I replace all the caps with a minimum 25V rating, unless it's higher than that. Then I stay with the same voltage.

Those 10V caps are notorious for blowing. No TX whatsoever, but the meter lights still go to red, and on SSB the lights flicker,and the relay chatters terriblly!! As I was using this radio up until yesterday when this occured, I noticed that the output power on TX was dropping right before this happenned, and also I noticed that ever since I 've had it the output power on SSB was never more than 5 watts, which I thought was a sign of a problem looming.

But anymore info you've learned, or anyone else has on this particular problem would be a great help. Redbeard , your non profit Prophet from the 'Bam!!! Well quickly I'll say you might just want to go ahead and clip C There's a good chance it'll clear your problem right up. N9EFJ plainly said C goes bad all the time and if this happens you should just cut it. Post and let me know how you make outI'd like to see you get it right back on the air.

Remember you can always check the voltage on the power supply first like I did, but everything in the symptom description seemed to point to that bad little blue cap. Yea, I'll try cutting C here in a day or so, after the hoildays are over. But I think I have a problem with the power supply too. So, before I clip C, I'll check the voltage at the power supply and see what it's putting out. Thanks man, I'll keep you posted. Yeah I'd be curious to see how it turns out. If you read how I checked the power supply you could probably easily do the same once you figured which wires where which.

My TRC is still bubblewrapped so I haven't brought it down and took of the protective wrapping to check it. Keep everyone posted on what happens with the radio. Merry Christmas Sporty Mike! Foxhunter35NJ,been reading your problem and im not real clear on whether or not after clipping the small tantalum cap did you replace it with a 2.

Idon't think you can just clip the tantalum and not replace it with the electrolytic and expect it to work. I have what i believe is the fix,which is removing c a2. I have a with the same problem,but for the life of mee i can't find the buger on the circuit board, can anyone help by giving me a detailed discription of its position on board?

I can only find one small blue tantalum cap and it isn't the correct number ie Would realy appreciate any assitance TNX Warlock35po. Well, I clipped C today All this time and it was such an easy fix, I'm definately calling lucky on this one.

Thanks Foxhunter for this thread, without it my Navaho would still be a boat anchor!!! Mike you're seriously welcome and am glad that the unit came back to life. Having it sitting there collecting dust like mine! I wonder, was C close to where I thought it was, near the Uniden ? Now I know, and hopefully so do many other Realistic Navaho TRC owners that will encounter this issue in the future.

I'll find this thread again and post some more pic'sand anything else I find that might be usefulwhen I recap the board on these two Navaho's. This has definitely been a very informative thread. I remember coming across some of thee years ago with that issue. Never realized how simple of a problem and fix it was. Pills are for swallowing! Foxhunter, the C on my was across from the , on the other side of the board about an inch and a half from the front.
