Yay, I finally got a little green pocket radio.
Naturally, it was as dead as a doornail when I first got it, there was no voltage going to the local oscillator, this was caused by an open circuit IF coil that was not allowing the voltage to get through.
It was probably like this from new, as when I unsoldered and opened up the coil, a wire wasn’t soldered to anything, and was just floating about inside making an intermittent connection.
Once the wire was repaired, the little radio sprang to life. 🙂
It only took 44 years to finally find one in the colour that I fancied when I was 7 😀
Now if only I can find a Sony WM-DD9 in mint condition for a few quid… 😛
