When is a rig to dead to continue with…

So, I’ve had many suggestions from other hams on how to fix my Ten-Tec Century. Some of the repairs I did not feel completely up to such as disconnecting full sections of the boards to test.

After Curt’s kind email I checked the voltages currently and came up with the following:

From the photo with the component behind the transformer in the back of the rig I have the following: Collector; 3.28vdc, Base; 3.15vdc and Emitter; 2.5vdc.

C1 into the power supply board is only 3.3 vdc and I’m no longer getting anything from the xformer.

I must say I am not far from just junking the set… I am discouraged that it seems to be getting worse.
