This is a MINT condition Lafayette Comstat 35 CB transceiver. I have not seen one in this good condition ever. It is deaf. No receive.
Opening the top I saw a crystal partially out of its socket. Hmmm, a clue. I pulled each crystal and referred to the mint condition documentation. Two are out of order. I checked the crystal sockets against the schematic to determine the socket numbers, replaced the crystals into the proper socket and power it on with the DBT.
Removing the DBT the radio came to life. Each channel was checked with an RF generator radiating indirectly into the shop. All channels receive on the appropriate frequency.
The transmitter puts out 3.5 watts though a BIRD watt meter with load and plate peaked.
