I have my fathers Nordmende Boheme C radio and want to get it up n running. It does power up and static comes thru, along with hum with no input selected.
Any suggestions in GTA to have it looked at?
Thanks

When was the last time it was working OK?
Is it set up for North American power?
Caution: dangerous voltages inside.
Cute little 7 tube radio circa 1966 or so. Even has electrostatic speakers.
The electrolytic caps should probably be replaced.
Probably needs Rf alignment, so whoever does that for you could probably take care of anything else that needs doing.
The next meeting of the Ontario Vintage Radio Association is on September 10 on Major Mckenzie in Richmond Hill.

Prospective members are always welcome; if no one there can do it, for sure they could point you in the right direction.
Good luck.
