Here is a CX7A from Gardena, California. This radio is from the
estate of Earle Scott, W6OAU (SK).
It is one of six CX7s I purchased from
WB6VHK who was helping with the estate.
Well it is now 7 plus years later and I finally opened this radio. It powered up and RX/TX worked but no Nixie display.
Board was covered in some kind of oxidation. One trace was opened and many IC sockets had issues.
Repaired and now working. The A PTO was frozen solid. Someone had used some really poor quality lube in the past.
Cleaned and used high quality lubricant.
This radio has an original A Power Supply Board that is in remarkable condition.
Excellent receiver and good output except rather low on 10 meters. Will save that for later.
