Another Florida box. This radio is from the
estate of Earle Scott, W6OAU (SK).
It is one of six CX7s I purchased from WB6VHK who was helping with the estate.
It is missing the RF Driver module.
This will be a restoration for some
So 2015 seems like a good time to work on this radio. I found the RF Drive module in a box of parts that Darrell shipped when I got all the radios.
Made the RX bias idle mod and replace Q2. Well actually it was just missing. One of the transformers on the board was damaged.
Made the repairs and it works fine. The Output knob was corroded to the shaft so bad I had to cut it off with a Dremel tool.
Replaced with new knob from stock. I also replace the meter lamp with the correct one.
Found bad cap and 5 watt resistor on PS Board (which is original A model).
Interestingly the power out is low on 80 and 160. Will save this for later.
Otherwise the radio works fine.
