Greetings fello CB'ers and Techs.
This is my first post, I just joined.
Problem is, I just purchased a SBE console V -aka "sbe40cb". The transmit on ssb and am is fine and the receive on ssb is also ok. But the AM receive is very low, even at full volume. Also the scan seems to function but won't stop on a channel being used. I am not sure if I got one problem here or two. I am reasonably good with electronics as a hobby so I am sure I will understand any and all response however technical the response may be. The squlch seems to work ok. I am assuming at this point that the prob may be in the front end. I cannot find a service manual for it and have never before worked on this type of cb with scan. I have already done a serch here and have read remarks about the caps getting old and weak and the dry soldering joints. Maybe but I kinda think that maybe its a problem just before the audio amp but after the IF amp. Well then again, if I knew I wouldn't bee here looking for help.
Thanks in advance for any help offered here. Bobby
