Jim, the first thing to check is to make sure the RECEIVE/TRANS switch on the 
back panel is in the TRANS position (bottom slide switch between power 
connector and heat sink, lower left side of rear panel when facing rear panel) 
. Note: Sometimes the switch will oxidize or corrode and needs cleaning by 
operating the slide switch back and forth several times. If the switch does not 
clean mechanically, Cramolin, DeoxIT, or similar may be needed to be applied 

If the switch is in the RECEIVE position, you will need a separate receive 
antenna to be connected to the phono (RCA) connector labeled ANT.

I finally found time to rebuild the PTO on the external VFO for your Delta.  
Went pretty easy on the rebuild.  Now I've got that station back together but 
the Delta seems to be deaf - can output a signal, on the right frequency, but 
doesn't seem to be able to hear anything.  I spent time last night with several 
radios on, finding strong signals, moving the Delta to that frequency, then 
finding that the delta could barely hear anything.  I'll have some more time 
tonight, I could have a bad coax, but it works on other radios - could be my 
antenna switch.

How well do you know Gary Huber?  I know he is a constant contributor to the 
Ten Tec listserv.  I wonder if he may have some ideas.
