On the bench today… A Roberts R881 Radio.

Just a shortish video on a Roberts R881 I picked up recently with no audio. It looked like a fairly decent radio, and didn’t cost too much, so will probably be popped on the keeping shelf.

Here I delve into what popped and how I slightly modified it to not pop again.

Radiocruncher looked at one of these not too long ago, so I won’t go into extreme detail regarding the fault-finding process, I’ll leave that up to him 😀

Here are his videos timed to the points where he looks at the R881

Have a look and subscribe to his channel, as he does look at all sorts of radios and lots of other technology, plus check out my youtube subscriptions for more great content.
