Best way to get moisture out of antenna coils . Some say take out and bake . I covered the back of set up let play for 4 or 5 hours . The heat off of the tubes and transformer will dry them out . Did mine .

I'm a two way radio tech and I see LOTS of radios that have taken a swim. The best way that I've found to dry electonics out is to wash them in a high quality rubbing alcohol which displaces the moisture and dries quickly. To speed things up even more I use a butane torch with a hot air tip, but a hair dryer will work too.
