I bought a used radio. One day later it's dead.

This sure can be an expensive hobby some times.

(I'm a little depressed, you might suppose, and you'd be right.)

Total operating time, 3.8 minutes. Total cost $525.  Total cost of ownership, $138 per minute.

Better luck next time.

Update: In the morning, by suggestion of someone from the local club, I unplugged and replugged the speaker lead in three times, and the third time cleared whatever little metal bit was shorted or stuck before. Now I have audio again.   Besides having a meltdown and feeling a bit shaky, I'm fine, and my radio is fine.   That was not fun.
