I am a fairly new ham. Recent financial issues have prevented me from
jumping headfirst into the hobby so my start was pretty slow. I picked
up an older Alinco radio (DR-110T) ...My first rig. I was in hog heaven,
then it quit. :-(
Alinco's website has a decent collection of info on their older radios,
including some stuff on this one like the owners manual, etc. however
they don't have any service info or schematics.
This is my only radio and I won't be able to afford to run out and buy
another one for quite a while. I have also been told that it would
probably cost way more than the rig is worth to have someone repair it.
I would like to attempt to fix this rig myself, however I'm running
blind. The issue shouldn't be a very major problem. It was installed in
my car and I was listening in one day at lunch. I turned the radio off,
went into BK for a burger, and when I came out it wouldn't power up
again. I checked everything when I got home and still had power all the
way to the back of the radio and the fuses were intact. It took it
inside and cracked the case. Hooked it up to my power supply and I have
voltage on the sub-board where the wires come in, but I don't see
anything I'd recognize as a reverse polarity diode or Schottky diode
anywhere near the power input. I know the radio didn't get reversed, it
worked for a month. I also don't think it got overloaded or anything
because the fuses were intact. That's where the troubleshooting ends...
It's been years since I went to school for electronics and I don't have
any test equipment more than the basics, a DMM and Soldering Iron. I
haven't worked on any electronics more complex than RC cars for several
years, but if I had the info I may at least have a chance to fix it. Do
any of you folks out there happen to have any info on that radio, or
know someone who might? I would really like to get back on the air and
any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
Thanx for listening,
Twin Lake, MI
