Your radio needs an alignment to bring it back to specs . Check all the frequencies according to the manual and have a tech tune it for you .

Check the fuse. Blowing a power supply does not happen. Blowing a fuse often does. If the power supply truly went out, it is too small in amperage. More information on the power supply may help.

If you want to talk on AM put it on AM if you want to talk on SSB then put it on SSB. Did you recently purchase this radio? You do realize you need a ham radio license to use this ?If you are on the upper ham bands you better have a license or they will come and get you .Look at the the dial that has 1 - 7 on it. Now take the owners manual and look at the diagram of the knob . It should say something about frequencies and the frequency you need to operate on is from 26.965 to 27.405 MHZ .

Ranger Radio... | Answered on Oct 01, 2015

frequency drifting on last number really doesn't make much difference. Lets say you are on CH 1 26.965 and the counter says the frequency is 26.9648 . Its not right but it close enough that its not going to make a whole lot of difference .Signal meter not working is not a problem either . You have to check the schematic for what voltage operates the meter,check to make sure that voltage is there. If it is then you should change the meter., if no voltage then you should check for the solution as to how to get it back. When the radio warms up and you hear people talking take some freeze spray and give the audio IC a shot to see if it still works or not .
