Thanks Ty. Well the problem does seem to be further along. I have determined
that the sub-rx is mores sensitive than the main rx but several s-units, so
the fault looks to be in the main rx IF chain. It is not the roofing filter

Over the years, I've had several of the small coils in both the LP/HP and
bandpass filters go bad...I'm sure due to excess RF.  They seem pretty
fragile.  Since I started using RX limiters in the RX line, I havent had any
more trouble.

I am noticing a receive loss of around 10-12 dB. I have checked Antenna 
B and receive antenna inputs. They are the same.

What I do notice is around 2-4 s units difference in indicated signal 
strength between main and sub Rx, which would indicate the problem is 
after the 1st mixer.

We recently used the radio as a spotter in CQWW CW at G5W . Whilst it is 
unlikely, we could have zapped the front end somewhere.

Anyone got any thoughts?
