Check the Accessory jumper and the VFO jumper on the back of the rig before 
doing anything else..... maybe just plug and and unplug them a few times to 
clear any corrosion.

Well, Yesterday I was doing a little shack rearaging.  ( Immanent arival of 
a Collins 32v1 to pair with my 75a1). So I had all the radio's down on the 
back desk.  ( I have a main opperating/contesting desk and a back desk with 
my collection of older( and often better more fun to opperate outside the 
contesting fray) radio's  Well  after making the room I was reinstalling the 
Corsair.  Got it all hooked back up and hit the switch and well teh vFO is 
way wacky.  Showing some very odd numbers.  When I step through the bands it 
goes from .09... on 160 to 9. something on higher bands to 98.somethign on 
15/10 etc.  Ok so WHAT have I done to my nice  Corsair?  All I did was take 
everything off move it to a couch where it sat for a few hours with my Drake 
4 line and   move it back.  I don't remember any big drops or bumps.  Any 
suggestions?  Places to start?

If this sounds like something (and most things are) beyond  my meager 
abilities to troubleshoot and repair. Do you all think its worth a trip to 
Ten Tec or?? Should I be looking for a replacement....8(

Any advice appreciated

Thanks and 73
