Siltronix 1011D Comanche transceiver help

Post by BigLion » Friday, 26 January 2018, 19:39 PM

Got one of these at a ham fest. Issue seems to be very weak modulation but plenty of carrier/signal. I tried two different mics but not a power mic as I don’t think these rigs can take a power mic. Tubes all check out fine. I am on Long Island NY and looking for a technician to repair and tune this rig up.help!

Siltronix was an excellent radio back in the day, nice receive and good transmit, but a little drifty on frequency. They used a "Hi Z" microphone so not all mics will sound good on them. The radio shines on SSB but AM it does lack so a power mic will help, recommend a older 4 wire TUG stand D104.

I ran a 1011C for a few years. Great sideband radio. AM function left a lot to be desired .
