You can also use it to annoy others by messing with the adjustments.
Locate J33 near the left-front of the main board. Seeking other options Doug in time came up with the 2290 modification. I understand all the instructions, but just have a few questions. Install a 1N4001 diode in series with the resistor, being sure to place the banded end of the diode in the vacated main board hole. You will be surprised at the results. I have obtained a gain increase of approximately 3db on stations more than 20 Miles away. Talkback is turned on and off by pressing the dial in like a button.
The improvement over the stock diodes can be rather dramatic, depending on how noisy the environment is around the operating location. Anyone visiting and viewing the material on this website agrees that the content on this website is to be used for entertainment purposes only.

In other words, if your clarifier is unlocked and you tune them in on receive, you will also transmit on the same frequency. The next feature that I like and comes standard from the factory is the variable talkback. This radio has plenty of audio to spare. Thanks again Doug, its beyond my expectations. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Radio Hobbyist's site.
This netted peak swing readings of just around 28 watts! This will allow you to lower the dead key and still have the full swing capability of this radio. In my own experience I tend to disagree. This actually works very well for any distant station giving you an S-1 to an S-5 signal. When I am in the mobile you can catch me on 28 hitting the airwaves. You'll need to remove the metal nameplate off the back it's in the way. Make a completion video to show tune-up levels and modifications. The limiter is there for a reason! That's simply just a no, no with any radio! Engage this circuit modification only when copying distant stations.
An open clarifier means your transmit and receive will track on the same frequency. Clarifier Unlock Modification: Much controversy has centered around this mod. Set clarifier on radio to 12 O'Clock position. I've talked to Jesse James Dallas probably or a half dozen times and others! All radios seem to respond differently depending on the value used. More than enough given the fact that the modulation was over 95% and crystal clear! Check options or picture before adding echo. To be posted on YouTube, Subscribe to my for notice. I am using the Astatic D104M6B microphone and I can not run the microphone and radio fully open without massive audio distortion.
Careless use of this modification can lead to radio damage. Good news if you plan on doing some stargazing: the easy-to-read meter is even illuminated for evening rides. I was able to achieve average peak swing readings of around 35 watts. So yes, I had to de-solder and re-solder on both ends of the phone cord in order to swap out the old vs. This radio has a totally new rf section and large heat sink to reduce heat build up. When installed in front of the Nitro Light Rings, the Clear Knobs will glow brightly. The resistor in this row is R264.
