Kenwood TS 870 issues


I recently sent my radio to Castle Electronics for some minor repairs and a full service etc. Cost me over three hundred quid with postage.

I've only used it a couple of times, and now I've got a serious issue.

Into a dummy load and only appears on SSB between 24990 and 30000 when keying up using the ACC 2 at the rear for audio input, I get a sort of feedback, the radio TX's a sort of screeching sound. This only happens when using the ACC 2. When using the standard microphone, there's no problem.

I've tried a few things, and searched the internet inside out, but can't find anything.

I've email Castle Electronics, but not heard back just yet. I'm going to video the problem, send them the video before I call him to discuss it. Its very annoying though.

I'll put the video up here when I've done it, maybe one of you guys can help? emoticon
