Grundig Satellit 3400 Shortwave Radio, Professional Portable World Band Short Wave Works Parts or Repair


This is a Grundig Satellit 3400 Professional shortwave radio. It is large for a portable at nearly 22lbs and measurements of 20" wide, 12.5" tall with handle down and about 6" wide.

As you can see by the photos, everything lights up as it should, with the exception of the clock display above the words "Quartz Time", But I have found the clock pops out and takes batteries which have never been put in so when put in it should work, I do not have the batteries.  I was able to get channels on both FM and AM/LW bands, and several weak channels on the other SW bands, however I do not know how to fully operate the unit.  I was able to get static, as in white noise and whistling etc. on all bands.  The one switch that moves up and down at center seems to be a bit touchy and when I get it just right I get better reception on some bands. The dials and switches need cleaning and also note the cord has been split and taped/repaired or altered.
 Now the WORST is inside the battery compartment, there were batteries left in and corrosion did happen, mostly on the door as you can see and some on the inside bottom and a bit on a contact inside (pics 8-9-10). ALSO I heard rattling inside around so I opened it up and I found the broken piece inside (pictures 6 & 7) that I think maybe has something to do with the antenna but I am not sure. It has some very thin wires attached to it, of which AT LEAST ONE is unattached and then a clip coming off it that attaches it somewhere inside. I think maybe this could be repaired with a weld type glue but am not sure so would leave that up to you. I will pack around it with bubble wrap inside for shipping and the back would have to be removed when you get it to deal with it. I cant guarantee it will arrived still attached to the wires though I will try my best.
