Hi all,

I'm gonna be getting a radio room set up here in the near future. Right now, I have 2 Kenwood R-5000's, my HF rig, the Kenwood TS-820S, as well as a couple of other communications receivers. These radios have not been turned on for a few years now and I'm wondering if there are any precautions I should take when turning them back on for the first time? Or, do I really need to worry about this? The last year and a half they were inside, but not in a temperature controlled room.

Any guidance will be appreciated. Smile

Just to be safe, send all to me for testing. drunken
I don't think you would have a problem, if their solid state.
As long as they are fused.
I hadn't plugged in my  YAESU - FRG 100. for almost 3 years, found my wall-wart power supply and it fired right up. Surprising the clock still was close to correct time. Just replaced the CMOS button battery, and reset the clock. I am a happy camper. Now where can I get a long-wire, poles and insulators.

I'm a Science Thinker, Radio Tinkerer, and all around good guy. Just ask Me!
