SV: Re: Icom preamps fault / icom UT-50 tone unit wanted

Hi guys, if my memory serves me right (YES, I am THAT old, hi) u may be able to replace 3SK121 
with one called 40673 that has built-in protection diodes (2 pcs back-to-back), BUT...........
if that is easier to find, i don't know.

Hi Dave/Walt, thanks for the replys. I have tried all the obvious things
like the rig supply, switch etc but your thoughts about sending RF and
Voltage at the same time rang a bell!  I used a dc inserter when I first got
these pre-amps and I suppose that left DC on the co-ax along with RF!  I was
being careful to protect my rado just in case the Amps were faulty...doohhh!

I suppose this must have taken out the GasFet, everything else should be ok
as the IC is still putting out 8V.
Out of interest what was the damage to your pre-amp?
I will still have  find a source for 3SK121 GasFets by the sound of it!

I'm still looking for an Icom UT-50 tone unit if anybody has one fo sale.
