Subject: Test Your Knowledge (President Lincoln/HR2510).

If the volts are correct at Q124 pre driver with no rf signal i would check volts at Q134 TX amp and for rf signal if volts are correct and still no rf signal i think IC106 is TX mixer i would check volts to see if they are correct and i think you should have a frequency reading at this point to che...

Subject: Test Your Knowledge (President Lincoln/HR2510).

When you say driver and final are OK does this mean the volts are correct on both? Also are the pre driver volts correct?

If this radio has the frequency counter plug in on the back of the radio the two wires go to it and have nothing to do with the power these were installed from factory.

Make sure the coax is hooked up correct if it is then Q1 keying transistor has probably went bad it should be a pn3907a transistor. Hope this helps.

Don't know if this will help or not, but there is a wire wound choke on the mic. socket board that will sometimes burn or become open that will cause a squeal or hum in transmit when mic is keyed even with the mic gain turned down and talk back turned off. hope this helps.

From looking at the pictures someone has done a swing mod. to this radio this is why you have a low carrier. To be able to raise your carrier you have to change the resistor to a higher value that is located on the solder side of the board located were JP6 used to be or you can remove the electrolyt...

I acquired a RCI2995 main board number EPT695012B that only has 1 watt of output power. The person I got the radio from had replaced Q60, Q62, and Q66. Thought the problem was in the linear so I unplugged the coax from the linear board that went to the antenna plug and installed it on the main PC bo...

Thank You to everyone who has helped me. I remounted the transformer properly and now the hum is just very faint with volume turned all the way down. With volume turned up you can't hear the hum in the receive anymore. Thanks again for your help
