HI , am a recent tech licensee and as I prep for taking the General, I picked up a sick Kenwood TS-430s to fix. Its been about 25 years since I did any serious electronic tech work and wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction. Previous owner reported no trans output and back of unit getting very hot., with recieve fine. Set up rig on 12v wet cell to test
receive and recieved well and entire back of unit got very hot .
Still continued to receive well and temporary power leads did not get warm.
Know this question is a bit premature, but as I try and wake up some under used diagnostic brain cells does anyone have any suggestions
Thanks Mark V / Kc9MSN
Ps. 12v Battery was fully charged and heat up of panel only took perhaps 5-6 minutes Very hot to touch
