Lovely Wavemaster with original gear- Kinetic actuator and Graupner Variphon 2 . Got all the original paperwork everything . The boat even smells beautiful inside like paxolin varnish old oil etc . Glorious ! Rx seemingly not working presently. Going to get it all going on the water with a Magregor outfit of similar vintage for time being

You should get two different tones Jonathan - am modulated, and quite loud.
Could be as simple as a mucky switch :D
