        (18:24:36) CB-Op(Ax240): My Galaxy don’t Like Cold Weather Takes All Day To Warm Up Unless I Return It.too Much Drift
        (18:24:36) CB-Op(AX05): Out of all mine I just got a report on the madison from Ken Albatross 390 who is super picky that it is the best he has heard me
        (18:25:32) CB-Op(AX05): Alba 570 sorry, yes my Texas Ranger 696 is starting to drift also
        (18:28:01) CB-Op(AX05): I probably have so many radios cause they all seem to develop faults after using them for a while – then I pull another out while i fix it.
        (18:28:57) CB-Op(Ax240): Yeh its a Pain. Not Going To Retune Every Day.may Have To Get It Aligned Or Do It Myself When I Find Out More About It. Just Have To Use The President P400 Instead
        (18:31:40) CB-Op(AX05): OK – I have a Pres Washington on the bench just sorted out the TX signal – it was crap – for a friend of a family member
        (18:33:34) CB-Op(Ax240): I Still Have Sort My old uniden Washington Out Chaged The Finals Still On Power
        (18:33:34) CB-Op(AX05): it has come up pretty good after a extensive retune & alignment – Ken 570 loves them but said my Madison sounde much better
        (18:34:51) CB-Op(AX05): No Power? does the meter move at all or can you hear signal on nearby radio on same channel?
        (18:34:53) CB-Op(Ax240): No Power I Mean.fingers Going All Over The Place
        (18:35:54) CB-Op(Ax240): The Meter don’t Move good receive But
        (18:38:43) CB-Op(AX05): you need to test with another radio on same channel – tx into ant or dummy load and listen for any signal. you always get predriver signal at very minimum. It may not be finals by sound of it
        (18:40:07) CB-Op(AX05): plug in different mic maybe connection or amc?- does it have AM carrier sig?
        (18:40:41) CB-Op(Ax240): Yes I Am getting Some Power But Not Enough
        (18:41:06) CB-Op(AX05): but how much on AM & SSB Whistle?
        (18:42:15) CB-Op(AX05): what was the circumtsances of it stopping to TX?
        (18:43:42) CB-Op(Ax240): Only About 2 Watts By The Other Radio. It Just Slowly Died , That Was A Long Time Ago
        (18:47:13) CB-Op(AX05): and you fitted one final or the predriver as well with what transistors
        (18:54:01) CB-Op(Ax240): I Fitted 2 Finals Both Cs1969 One Should Have Been A Cs 2166.they Have 2 Different Finals. Do Know Enough.
        (18:55:24) CB-Op(AX05): hmm maybe the 1969 needs more drive so wont act as a low power in predriver – not sure on this but worth checking
        (18:56:30) CB-Op(AX05): did you reset bias? this would be important may be trial and error by ear
        (18:57:12) CB-Op(AX05): is it an 858 PLL same as this one i have?
        (18:59:20) CB-Op(Ax240): No haven’t Reset Bias .no Not 858.. Its Mb7819 Or Something Like That
        (19:02:01) CB-Op(AX05): ok – download all the info on it from net and try to check the bias curret should be 40 ma pre and 70ma final if same as this one but maybe needs different with using the 1969 as a pre – not sure if this is ok though -maybe try to get the orig trans for it
        (19:06:59) CB-Op(Ax240): Ok Will Do That Thanks Greg.
        (19:08:27) CB-Op(AX05): no worries mate – gota go to dinner cya
