I'd like to remove this tarnish without wiping off the frequency numbers. Is soap and warm water recommended, or something else? Thanks!

Spread Brasso on the bronze surface. Rinse it off with water after a couple of minutes. Test it on the cap first to see for yourself.
Alternatively you can let it sit in lime juice or diluted Brasso (1 part Brasso, about 4 parts water). This should work for any bronze, copper or nickel plated parts.
