Post subject:  Sansui TU-217 Tuner problems

I have a sansui TU-217 tuner that when in stereo mode is is sorta staticky but in mono it sound clear, So I think it needs to be serviced but I have never messed with tuners, Is it hard to align them? or should I find a service tech? I have the schematics for it but have not looked at the guts yet. And trying to find a tech in this town might be impossible lol.

I have had similar problems and never really had any luck trying to realign them. The problem is that there are so many coils to adjust.

I just put a better antenna on it, an outside type tv one clamped to the cealing fan down rod in my puter/music room, It helps some but need to rotate the thing for the other channels lol my main station's transmitter is south of me and all the othere are west of me.

Antennas are fun. It was a crystal radio that got me hooked on electronics and audio when I was about 13!

If you are into radios, give this site a look. They have a lot of neat gear.

Also, here are some of my radio bookmarks you might find handy:

Gio, My gramps got me a bunch of wire, a crystal, an earphone, and an oatmeal box when I was 13 to. It was pretty cool :)
