Hi, I recently picked up a Ten Tec Delta II 536 from a local ham. I got a good 
deal on it, but i bought it knowing there were some problems. A loose VFO knob, 
lcd backlight is out and the most serious, erroneous frequency readings. The 
radio receives great and has a wonderful quiet Ten Tec receive. I have not 
tried transmit yet, but was told it puts out full power.

The main problem is the frequency display is cuckoo. 5's can have an extra 
segment - 8's can look like two lines or 6's - the lsb and usb indicators are 
on at the same time, there's a segment missing on the swr indicator etc etc., 
just crazy readings that make it hard to know where you are. 

interestingly enough the first two digits in the freq. display are fine, so i 
at least know what band i'm on. It seems the display driver might be bad or 
maybe the encoder. i figure no better place to post this message than here. any 
help would be appreciated.

73, john
