RE: rds7.6

Lots of CMOS IC's in that series. It is pretty cheap (the CMOS), and
usually all socketed. You can find the 4xxx (read four thousand series)
at http://www.mouser.com. Prices are usually about fifty cents per IC. 

ESD techniques are in effect when handling these IC's. BUY A STRAP!

Oh, I guess I should mention that the CMOS was/is prone to failure. You
can probably shotgun all the CMOS for about $15. A chip puller will help
you as well.

Subject: rds7.6

Hello everyone.  
I just snagged an RDS 7.6 from an ebay auction.  Unfortunately the unit
did not work when I received it.  The unit is in beautiful cosmetic
shape and all the led's are working, but the signal seems to 'pass
through the unit' without adding so much as a little slapback.  What
This problem seems so drastic that to my untrained brain, it seems like
there might be a simple solution lurking somewhere.
Any help you guys could give would be appreciated.
Thanks, Todd Husken
