"The meter would require a gentle tap on the case to get it in its correct spot. Once there it works great across the band. I see the magnet as a small washer type plate. Can the magnet be remagnetized? Thanks"

"The meter includes a magnet.  What is the nature of the problem?  Anemic meter operation in the AW-23 is usually related to IF alignment. Norman "

I was expecting a crystal pickup but it appears to contain a magnetic pickup with…See More
