Sony ST 70 tuner - no AM response?

Postby perchman » 09 Oct 2017 19:42

Hi all

Just picked up a lovely Sony ST70 and matching amp, nice retro look and feel and in great order apart from the fact that i cannot get anything out of the AM side.

FM is working fine but not being either an expert on tuners or electronics im struggling having now checked all the basics.

Any thought on how to proceed next would be very much appreciated.

Is there MW broadcast in the UK these days?
Long gone in Malaysia as MW transmitters use far more electricity than FM.
