Found on the side of the road after some heavy rains this early Onkyo Tuner now lives. The power cord and RCA acbles had been cut off. I repaired with new 3 pin power cord and some quality RCAs. I was able to use my existing FM and AM areals but though the signal strength appears high I have a lot of interference. Not perfect but a good start.

Silly me. I have complained about this restored tuner not picking up one station properly, hissing, fading and being almost un-listenable. I have realised I was not tuning right on the station. You can pick it up a few notches down the scale, full signal, some sort of side-band or something ( I'm not a wireless man).

While demonstrating my 807 amp (connected to the tune) to a prospective buyer of one of my phono preamps I realised I could tune the station I wanted just a centimeter up the scale with no noise and a perfect signal. With the type of analogue scale on the tuner it is a bit of guess work exactly where the station you want is. Regardless I now have a well working and gorgeous sounding Onkyo FM\AM tuner\807\VoXDeuX65 setup for classical FM listening. Old school sound and thoroughly enjoyable. It is amazing what you can find on the side of the road and I'm rapped I can save just one more analogue, retro peace of well made gear from the tip.

Further explanation why I was miss-tuning. ABC FM, the station I listen to, tunes to different frequencies in each state and within each state different frequencies in different regions. In Victoria, where I live, there is about half a dozen different regions and each would carry the ABC on a different carrier. What I was doing when miss-tuning was picking up the ABC in a neighboring region.

But as I said above; "it's amazing what you can find on the side of the road". I also have picked up a CD player and a Sanyo TT. The TT needed a new belt and some work but a few hours later it has given me some fun and enjoyment. The TT is not use any more because I bought an AT direct drive.
