Help for a new radio tech


I was recently thrust into the role of bench tech where I work. I’m getting pretty good at it, however, there are some issues that I’ve run into that I can’t seem to troubleshoot with the tech manual alone.

While this site appears to be very well put together and helps a more general audience, I was wondering if anyone here knows of a site that is more geared towards fixing issues and troubleshooting radios. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.


I don’t see how you can possibly do bench work without a service manual on each make and model of radio. You can order them from the manufacturer of the radio.

Hi Dip Shit

If one has experience most radios can repaired using your “nose”. That being said newer radios for the most part, can not be repaired at least not economically.

And previous poster what troubles are you having?
