    Just wondered if any one can help. Just got a Ten Tec Corsair 2and it works fine for 10 mins and then the frequency read out freezes. The vfo still works and I can still change freq. If I then turn the rig off and on again, the freq readout doesn't come on. If the radio is left off for half an hour then when it is switched back on the readout comes on after about 30 seconds. It then stays on and works ok for about 10 mins and then freezes again. Even when the readout is blank or frozen the rest of the radio all works fine. Has any one had this problem, is it the famous PTO rebuild problem on these rigs. I believe kits are availible to repair. Thanks

    Hi OM,
    Sounds to me like an electronics problem if the rig changes frequency but the readout doesn't follow. Also sounds to be temperature related. GL HTH
