Tecsun 2000 BFO drift problem.
« on: May 31, 2018, 0500 UTC »
Just discovered how to correct the BFO drift on the Tecsun, the variant knob was near hard over to the right and was on the verge of requiring a frequency adjustment to what appears on the readout.

Just hit the "reset" button, done it by accident and found the BFO setting knob was back to its near normal 12.00 central position. ;D

Good to hear that the BFO problem is solved.   :)
Did the reset also cure your FM noise problem ?

I wish, still there and gradually creeping further up the FM band, nearly up to 100MHz now and slowly marching up the band.

Looking for a good secondhand JRC NRD-535 or 545 but very scarce in this part of the world... ;)
