Question about Maxon 49-HX 2-Way Radio
I have been donated 2 49-HX radios from work which were just gathering dust and have not been used for so long that their batteries have oozed nasty stuff everywhere. However, I've cleaned up the battery contacts and found they both work ok except one is very prone to noise pick up. It picks up shash 95% of the time and only handling the box or aerial may temporarily stop it.
I've opened up to dodgy unit and found that if i touch various legs of different components with my finger or a non-insulated screw driver, the noise cuts out and the radio works perfectly.
I can't see any dry joints or loose components/wires etc. Is there something obvious I may have missed that would cause this.
Thanks for your time.
Seems to me you have a grounding problem. try grounding it. take a length of wire, strip both ends, twist one end of it to the antennea and the other end to any metallic object thats stuck to the earth. see if it goes away. but remember to remove it when you switch off or during a electrical storm.
