Got the norcal 38special in the other day from fleabay it went for a real low price and it took me more time to unwrap it then it did to put in the case!!
It seems there have been a few mods done to it — 5watt rit and the tick keyer
After installing it in the case and powering it up it seems to have a problem– just a loud tone — but if I push the keyer button I can hear it working – none of the rit tuning or rf gain seems to work — will have to troubleshoot and ask dome of the other qrper folks out there for some guidance — I know with my license I can not transmit on 30 meters — heck I don’t own a key really just like to listen or decode via the computer and surf the airwaves!!
