The static crashes with no antenna points to possible electrolytic 
capacitors going bad, or a bad solder joint.  Easiest to first inspect 
sollder joints from antenna connector all the way to audio output stage 
of receiver section and go from there.

It just may be that the receiver needs to be left on for some hours in 
order for the electrolytics in the power supply to reform the dielectric 
inside them.  Any electrolytics as old as the originals might be 
expected to show breadown after long non-use.
