hi folks, got a FT897 with a problem, I was running new COAX in between house, break out box and end of garden, I had a radio outside testing SWR at points, and I managed, to plug in and TX into a coax that's attached to my FT897 indoors, yes I know I know, ironically I was then labeling the coax's etc...but in short I sent 5w from another radio directly into the back of my 897 which now, wont put out any power at all, it all looks normal, fans, TX lights, etc etc, but there's nothing coming out, gutted does not do it justice, but it was my fault so I need to man up ! does anyone know where I can get that sort of thing fixed, or anywhere that can help a fool restore his Radio privileges ?

thanks

Stu

I would suggest talking to Tony G0MQG 2 the club if your a club member.

if not send the radio to somewhere like Martyn lynch & sons or Castle electronics. it shouldnt be too much to repair.

good luck

I can have a look if you like but you'll have to "join the queue"
