RUBBER BUSHING REPAIR
Written by: Mark Gilger, WB0IQK
Over time the rubber bushing that resides under the VFO knob skirt will get hard. When this happens it no longer serves itís purpose, which is to enable the user to slip the dial to get it into calibration.
This part is no longer available, but using the following procedure, the user will be able to restore his dial to full function.
Thatís it, simple but effective.
