Picked one up a while back. Great radio, but having an issue with the push button power switch. Tried the Radio Shack Electronics Cleaner,....nope. Anybody know where I can get one?

Not off hand. They were great old radios though for sure and well worth fixing up if you can. You might consider dropping Rick (TheCBDoctor & forum sponsor) an email or PM and ask him if he knows a good source. Heck, he might even have some he's willing to part with. He's a terrific guy and good source for knowing where to score vintage parts.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Those switches were pretty common of the era for many devices, not just cb radio. Hit the local flea market and find an old boom box, alarm clock or several other devices of the time period and you'll have one.
