Re: When where these made?

Going by the switches and it being 40 channels, I would say made between 78- 82, not worth much down here being AM only, good condition though. Search ebay for it. http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/general_ ... /index.htm PLL03A inside.

Re: No RX AM, no TX SSB Phantom Communicator

Hi all, now have TX on all modes, the band switch was installed upside down and whoever did it mixed up the red wire with the green one, still no RX on AM though, I really thought I had it, back to the drawing board, I guess.

Super Lion where is the secondary of TP 1???

Hello all, I am trying to align a radio ATM, I was able to find all the test points for the first part of alignment, the last one I did had straight forward instructions: Ch 40 USB RX mode Clarifier mid position, Frequency counter to secondary of TP3 (19th of IC1), adjust CT1 to obtain 17.1650MHz +-...

Re: Stalker IX low TX audio

Hi Animal, they come with a mic that has gain adjustment on them, maybe thats a clue for you, unless of course you already knew that!

Re: GE A35825B No TX

Put the rig in AM TX, the CRO in AC on a high voltage (2 or 5 volts) and if you have a X10 switch on the probe, turn it to X10. Hi lbcomms, apparently I didn't understand that part (I did put CRO on DC to check DC switch), my mistake, all the readings I obtained were incorrect (something to do with...

Re: GE A35825B No TX

hmmm...well out of curiosity...it sounds like your speaking about the "component side" of the board, and saying the "gap" was too far, and you don't know how this happened....so i'm wondering...were they both "cut"....as in a hatchet job (mod) of some sort, or if not, are you saying the 1 leg from ...

Re: GE A35825B No TX

Hi 222, no chance, the breaks in both left quite a gap, the pieces are still sticking up through board, you would have needed to snap the board in half for them to make any contact at all, the diode had actually shifted sideways ( thats how I spotted it ) and the resistor was at about a 25 degree an...

Re: GE A35825B No TX

Ok, I was checking voltages on the DC switching transistors, one showed voltage on one leg (Q220) and the other (Q219) showed no voltage anywhere, this prompted me to look closer at nearby components and I happened to notice a resistor (R221) had broke away from the board at one end which forced me ...

I have the radio hooked up to a dummy load and external speaker, when I key the mike on SSB, a screech comes through speaker and the ...

Re: DON'T LET THIS SITE DIE!

Hi, I have only just joined and have had plenty of help from various people, so I have no complaints, but in the long run you must help yourself, read and learn some basics, then if people see you are willing to have a go yourself, and you are stuck, I am quite sure help will come.
