Dear friends,

This goes for RMORG Portugal colleagues...
I received the help request to repair a Siera S196X radio that is missing one of the IF transformers.
As the person lives in Portugal, it's impracticable to be sent to me here in Brazil.
So I thought if any of our Portuguese colleagues could help.
Below is a transcript of the email he sent me:

Bom dia Sr Meyer.

Muito obrigado pela sua informação , porem onde e como consigo mandar
arranjar a peça e arranjar o radio com confiança ?

Moro em Portugal mais precisamente na Parede.

Grato pela sua ajuda , aguardando seu comentário.

Cumprimentos .

António Atilano

If anyone is interested in helping, please contact me and I will provide the email of Mr. Atílano.

Greetings,

Meyer  ebl21[A*T]yahoo.com.br
