Re: Ozark Patrol help needed
Hi Dan,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The volume on mine is rather low but if my shop is quiet I can hear it from twenty feet - if i pay attention. I plug in the "computer speaker" too but if I am going to be near the radio it is loud enough. Do you use your radio with headphones? The simoler radios are best with cans.
I think my voltages are closer to what the paper says but those are never dead on. I found a bad capacitor that goes with the "bandswitch" on mine. Did you measure the resistors? I have a lot harder time with the paint used in the color bands and so I use an ohm meter on every one of them. It was much clearer 60 years ago when the parts and the stripes were bigger and there weren't fifty different shades for each color and some colors overlapping others. A navy "blue" stripe .030" wide looks just like a "black" stripe - even under the magnifier.
You may discover an out of spec resistor or more likely a resistor in the wrong position. They didn't define "oops" for that one mistake I made once upon a time <evil grin>.
