hi guys
I have a FT-757 with very low receive volume, only hear very loud stations
even local am radio stations only the very strong signals. so i took the
covers off and started probing around. when my finger got close to part #
L-03 the volume increased very much.
it looks like a light bulb, never seen any thing like it, its not a resistor
or transistor or capacitor. again it looks like a small light bulb. this is
on the very start of the receive circuit just ahead of the antenna

any ideas what i am looking at and what may be the problem with this rig. I
am just starting out trying to teach my self how to fix or destroy radios

thanks guy and happy holidays
