SLR5700 VHF and lightning

Post by arlojanis »

I have a VHF SLR5700 that is 4 months old and receiver went very, very deaf during the first storm. There are no burn marks anywhere. Is this normal? I have several SLR5700 UHF repeaters and no problems with surges or lightning crashes. The VHF unit has a mobile type duplexer, DB222, and a 30 foot tower on flat land. It replaced a R1225 that never had a receive problem.

Check any jumpers or flexes inside the unit for scorching/continuity. They sometimes appear normal but on testing -are not-.
