Dear Alberto, LF Group,
These receivers are now about 15 - 25 years old, so being realistic you will
have to repair them from time to time. Having said that, the only thing I
have had to do to mine is re-align the BFO VCO. I see that Telford
Electronics are selling these RXs for 500 GBP + VAT, or 650 GBP for the
backlit LCD model.
Cheers, Jim Moritz

I would add: quite easy to maintain, no custom ICs, only a few outdated parts
but still available on the market. The synthesizer is remarkably
the 3rd order IMD is in the 102-103 dB range.
Having a synthesized BFO has always been a very useful feature for me.
I use one rebuilt from scrapped parts, after having sold several tens of
them in Italy.
Mine breaks down occasionally ... always repaired in a couple of hours.
The defects are there, but not a great annoyance, at least for me.
