    have a 7 year old 706 running mobile for 7 years. All of the sudden it started turning off and then on right away. It now wont go on at all. I brought it to the bench and have the head mounted on the unit and powered direct from a battery. I have beat on it, looking for an intermittent...no luck. The power button clicks...and I am going to dig into the control head to check it today. All All fuses look ok. Can any one suggest a direction to go. Thanx, Dave W1LRC

    Put a voltmeter from the + terminal on the battery to the + terminal on the 706 side of fuse. Push the on button, any deflection of the meter would indicate bad connection, bad fuse, or bad power cable. Do the same on the - terminal of the battery to the most - point on the 706.
    Good luck,
