    Have you looked under the hood to see if all the parts are there? Wouldn't be the first time someone sold a radio on ebay with half the parts missing.

    Does anything come on, like panel lights? Is the fuse okay? We're going to need a bit more info, I'm afraid.

    Just a minor oversight, blame me if you'd like.

    I've got a real sh*tstorm going on in my personal life and haven't been able to devote the time to the Forum that I should.

    Possibility of the final being bad, and the transmissions you're hearing are from the driver transistor only. Does the PA function work?

    I'm by no means a tech, just thinking out loud here.
