yahoo or google and it leads me to a source
of parts.

Also..
YAHOO GROUPS..just about all the
radios have a yahoo group or even two (as in
FT301)
(note the Yaesu FT301 group is the
best group of the two.
 and you can check the
files or links data if you join the group. I have
found YAHOO GROUPS to be a good

Amateur-Repairs (5431 members..good content); Atlas 210-215 group, Yaesu FT301, OVQRP..Ottawa Valley Qrp Society..for those in the Ottawa vicinity, HW16,
Heathkit Groups,
 I will list some other good ones soon. In the discussions portion..you can ask questions and maybe even get parts or entire radios..AND in
the files section..you will find PDF manuals and scans and high resolution schematics and service bulletins and notes.
Do you want to see something here? and it is one of these older type rigs
or pieces of ham gear (typically 1960s through 1985 or so..)
just send me
an email: earlinclayton@yahoo.com and I will do it if I can!
SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT HEATHKIT..I (think) those manuals are copy rite
now so I would not be posting them here. IF HW16 or HW7 email me and
I can maybe photocopy a manual for a small fee and snail mail it. I wont
be posting the Heathkit manuals on line because I am afraid of legal
action.
SUGGESTIONS/REQUESTS..WELCOME
I answer all my emails faithfully and will try and get your manual of your older
piece of equipment here on this page (if it is an older type radio like the kind
of item I work on)
*******    I RECOMMEND YAHOO GROUPS HIGHLY!!! **********************

ie Amateur Radio Repairs, FT301 groups..a good resource and its free and it works. I
belong to about
30 or 40 of these specialized groups and I check in on them from time to time to get
manuals..see the discussions or see if any files/links for certain radios.

I work on older radios that don't have Phase Lock Loop frequency Control or Microprocessor
Control. My shop rate is only $10 per hour. Radios such as Argonaut, Argosy, Atlas ect. ect.....
I can do "time consuming" types of repairs..ie undoing mods, intermittent fault finding.
No major alignments. Not yet. I'm going to get a sweep generator (soon) and will be working on
some of my own equipment (FIRST).
Right now..just doing board repairs and component level
repairs and circuit restorations. Email me at link top of page here..for more information or this
page here explains what I do for other people. MY

Hi there Earl,    (I answer about 2 or 3 emails a day and I give out lots of free advice..this fellow had success with his
Argonaut 509!)
All fixed up now..to my great amazement ! After 15 years in storage everything needed a really good clean.
Cleaning all the pins & sockets on the boards, and cleaning and lubricating all the switch wafers and pots several
times did the trick. Now working well on all bands, but so much time and fiddling!!
This fellow took a few of my suggestions and did the service himself. Nov 27 2012 email.
Some have speculated that Fred
Gwynne was a ham in real life, but
I've never seen any documention of
it, QSL's, etc.. When he was not
working, Fred and his family actually
live on a farm in Taneytown -- Fred
died a while ago.

NOTE: not all the pages will be in order but the complete
manual is in this SCAN I made of my own 1208 Manual.

NOTE: the modification file which should also be
included with the manual. When I bought my 1208 second
hand-- the original owner mentioned he had problems
with a certain stage of the alignment. Perhaps this
modification will address this issue.
