Hi All,
I have a Kriesler 11-104 radiogram. We have had it a few years now and after fixing up the turntable it has served us very well. The sound is amazing and it has built in input and output plugs. Perfect for iPods. However, the other day it suddenly stopped receiving the local ABC, (1233 Newcastle) It still picks up everything else but not the local one. There has been nothing done to the transmitter(my wife works there) and I am stumped. I tried the extended antenna but nothing.
Can anyone give me any ideas?
Cheers

Is one of the tuning gangs shorting out right on that station? Sounds unlikely all of a sudden but easy to check.

How do you test the tuning gangs? It has been on the one station for years but it still can be tuned in to the stations either side.

Pull the tuning gang rotor wiper earthing springs out, clean them and the rotor groove with Brasso, wipe lightly with CRC and re-assemble, making sure the wiper springs are bent for tension onto the rotor grooves.
