Made in about 1989. It is a high end multiband shortwave portable radio.

Sorry, just seeing your reply now.

A fault with the microprocessor is one possibility, however it could also be due to a fault with the the RF board, or a loose connection somewhere.

Unless you have schematics and test equipment available to troubleshoot and repair yourself, the radio will need to be sent for repair.
