My TX-11 tuner

After all these years since I got it when it came out it still works perfect as far as picking up the signal from far away and sounding great.

I almost never have used it for the last 10+ years but since I am home alone I decided to turn it on.

Only problem I ever had is those goofy buttons for going through the channels.....it loves to stick and keep on going.
This time I made it to the channel and have it playing right now from Seattle to over here in the Olympics.

My C-19 needs a switch cleaning since I had to sort of cheat to turn it to "tuner" since it spends most of the time on "CD"

Well funny thing I was down in the garage and just had 97.3 on a old fm junker listening to "talk radio" so when I got to the house I wanted to listen to a bit more so I turned on the TX-11 (and the amp,preamp) and then since I was home alone I figured I better listen to some 102.5 like back when I bought the TX-11

Worked real good considering I don't use any antenna...just have the wire laying in the cabinet :)

Which DeoxIt is best for the switches like these?

Since they have 100 different versions :lol:

DeoxIT® D-Series ?

No, just hoping~

Actually, I just wanted to refer to them because they literally have the best customer service I've ever experienced. Free delivery, free tech support, free lifetime warranty.

Re: My TX-11 tuner

I'm sure they can afford to offer a lifetime warranty on a can of Deoxit.

Sounds like a good deal for me........I was thinking RadioShack since that is as close as I have but I like the free shipping so I will just order it this way since I rather not drive to the Shack.

Thanks

Re: My TX-11 tuner

My DeoxIt package showed up today from Indiana/Sweetwater.com (the only good thing I saw from Indiana today :( )

I guess I have to use it now.

First time I ever had a mailman stop by my house on a saturday to deliver anything.

I open the package and nice packing material and the can of DeoxIt AND a hand full of Tootsie Rolls in the box too :lol:

Hell I haven't had any of those for over 30 years!

If business only went like this all the time......

Yeah they probably would have called me but I always say I don't have a phone.

But I did email back and forth to Tim checking to see just how they send stuff and if it would go to my post office box or the mail box which I never use....or right to my house.

And it came right to my house real fast after we emailed back and forth.

I'm not a fan of the cell phone or telephone so I have my wife answer the phone of make calls for me 8)

So if I ever need anything that they have at Sweetwater I will order from them.

I do have a few friends that live in Indy and up near Ft Wayne

I live across the sound and listen to KPLU (88.5). Prior to acquiring the TX-11, other tuners sounded like crap due to high multipath conditions at my place. I hooked up the TX-11 and turned on the Noise and Multipath Reduction and KPLU now sounds nearly as good as a CD! I think it is a great tuner. Good Luck!

Are you in Tacoma then?

Over here in Jefferson County the radio signal is only good up on Mt Walker unless we want a Canadian channel.

If I drive to Sequim or Port Angeles I lose the Seattle channels.......only have a CD player in my spoiled 1970 Cutlass Supreme that sits in the garage until summer.

Even worse is the expensive Sony CD player that I only used a few times has a CD stuck in it and I can't get it to spit it out or even play it :?

I took it out of the car a few years ago and took the cover off the player and I still couldn't get the disc out of the damn thing.

Maybe this summer I will find the time to take it out again (it's just in the glove box since I keep the car all original)

I always liked the TX-11 and I got it the week it first came out over in Lynwood.

Over here I live in a valley and the way the land is here with ridges and valley's the signal is not easy to pick up especially when I used to listen to KCMU and another college type channel with low power signal

The closest thing to an antenna I EVER used was one of those old rabbit ear off an old tv that I put outside the front door with a wire running back to the TX-11.....perfect sound back then.

Now I just have the wire laying on top of the Carver amp since it is at the top in the cabinet.

I have lived in this area for over 30 years so I built my first satellite dish here 28 years ago just to watch TV

I don't listen to the radio much these days since I can play Sirius channel music on the tv.......which I still don't have hooked up to the Carver preamp.
