[TenTec] 229A SWR Circuit

Thanks Bill - As mentioned in an earlier post I had already replaced the diodes and the problem persisted.


I really think it's the 200 uA meter itself.  However it's a simple circuit and 25+ years old so tomorrow I'll follow Stuart's suggestion and dig into it a bit further and perhaps replace a few components.

Thanks again.

I agree with Stuart.   Before doing anything else just change all of the diodes. They are cheap and 
avaiable. You won't damage any other parts  such as the meter trying to trouble 
shoot the circuit and it may just fix the problem! GL
