I got this story second hand, I have not seen the radio, but apparently my buddy's Washington will not modulate on AM and keys up at about a watt, while before it keyed around 4. On SSB, the relays will continually click while the mic is keyed and it won't modulate. However, it receives fine. The problems seem centered around transmitting.
It seems to be a different problem than is mentioned in this
thread, but perhaps I am wrong.
Neither one of us have the equipment to fix this, and we know just enough to be dangerous, however I'd like to know what others think before we take it into the shop. There is not the best selection of shops locally and he does not want to ship it so I think it's best if we can learn as much as we can about what may be the problem from you knowledgeable folks before plopping it down on someone's bench and telling them to have a good time.
