Folks, please help me with a little problem I have with my 525 analog.
I picked this up some time back and it seemed to work OK. I made a good
contact on 75 meters. I moved my shack to another room and this radio sat
unused for about 6 months. I decided to hook it back up ...and got poor audio.
I checked my antenna with a visual inspection from the ground, and all
appeared well. To shorten the story, the problem was with the antenna. The
center pin had pulled out but I couldn't see this from the ground .....but no
problem when I saw the lead-in lying on the ground a few days later.
But, before this discovery, I took the top and bottom covers off of the 525 and
loosened and retightened all screws ...and unplugged/replugged all plugs I
could see. Now, I thought the little 525 was OK ...but the 75 meter band is
requiring reception in the reverse mode (SB-R) instead of normal (SB-N). The
40 meter band is not quite up-to-snuff either. 20 meters is great! Did I
replug something wrong? I think I unplugged/plugged each, one at a time. What
the heck is going on here and what is the remedy? Help, please.
