Sailor 144B VHF

Hi Sailors, I'm new to the Forum and hoping for some help in repair for my old (40 yr) Sailor 144B VFH which will transmit but not receive. I'm told it needs a new Oscillator. I saw a post of 2009 on the Forum from a man called Barrable ! who. Could do repairs, does anybody know if he still does repairs ? Or know of anyone who does ? . The VHF has been on my boat for 25yrs and I'm very reluctant to bin it as it's a great bit of engineering and looks good. Thanks for any Help.

Hi Sailors, Anyone know how I can contact a man called Mick Burke in Athlone. I'm told he can repair/replace my Sailor 144B VHF it's an old radio but suits my boat and I'm very reluctant to bin it. Any Help appreciated

Tony, don't know Mick Burke but there's a guy in Oranmore in Galway (Rory something) that repaired my Navico 6500 a few years ago. He's based in the little Deerpark industrial unit just beyond the Maldron Hotel.
He shows up on the Golden Pages listing as (091)790222

Might be worth a try.

Best Wishes,

GMY Chang Sha
