Re: Ozark Patrol help needed
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Not familiar with Ozark Patrol (I might have to get one to play with) but here are my thoughts:
1. The base bias on Q1 is a bit low but probably not a problem at this point. Does V(Q1b) vary with the REGEN control (R4)?
2. I would check the voltage along the component chain leading to Q1 - i.e. junction of R1 and R2, R2 and L1a.
If Q1 was 'off' the voltage on Q1c would be a bit less than battery voltage. You are reading 0V so it, as Mike commented, sounds like you either have a short on Q1c or a lack of continuity somewhere along the string from the battery to Q1c.
So just keep looking at voltages and staring at the schematic. Something is amiss - probably a bad solder joint. Good luck!
