Question about Galaxy Radios DX- 88HL Base CB Radio
As the title says, I have a DX 88 HL that I just picked up that the frequency counter constantly jumps around on. It has no recieve, but I haven't tried transmit since it doesn't appear to be stable. There does appear to be a black block looking component that is located on the pcb underneath and slightly behind the frequency counter box that appears to be slightly burnt and there's a ground strap running from the frequency counter box to a pod on the board that is broken. I'm sure the ground strap needs resoldered, but I'm not sure what the black box compenent is.. I can't say I'm a master technician by any means, but with a little guidance, I'm competent enough to replace some parts if I know what I'm replacing. Any ideas what this component could be?
Sounds to me like a bad PLL chip. but then again, I'm no Master tech myself.

I had this problem on an 88 and it was the one of the 4008 adder chips gone bad. Not easy to replace. Needs a good tech with a steady hand and hot solder gun!
