SWR meter

I hope this is the right category to post in, it is related to antenna tuning... The SWR meter I've aquired has a tiny input labelled FS ANT. A quick google reveals some SWR meters come with a short stainless steel wire/aerial that's attached to the SWR meter http://www.sunequipco.com/electronic%20t...

Re: pro 2006

I know this is an old thread but in case anyone finds it searching for the same symptoms, I found the cure. Simply replace the batteries, then RESET to Factory Defaults - Both Realistic Pro's I've owned are reset by holding the 2 and 9 buttons down then turn on - you will lose all stored frequencies...

Re: Old rig in need of some TLC perhaps?

Hi Dave, I'm certain those schematics are not for my board - the diode is D23 on my board. Either way, I've made a little progress on the diagnostic side with a mic connected - it's definitely fubar'd with constant TX illumination (which changes from red unkeyed, to green keyed), PA not working (pre...

Re: Old rig in need of some TLC perhaps?

I've searched long and hard yet cannot find any info on my board. :(

Plenty of UNIDEN PCnnn schematics except PC242

Meanwhile I've got hold of a Fidelity 4-pin mic that I can use for this President rig but again, without diagrams, I don't know if I need to re-wire it?

Re: Old rig in need of some TLC perhaps?

I do apologise Dave, I didn't answer your post! :oops: Yes, the diode (I'll try and identify it on the diagram for you ... it's not my strong point but I'll willing to learn, if I may beg your patience) had provided a short by the power socket, hence the blown fuses with the rig turned off. Scott, I...

Re: Old rig in need of some TLC perhaps?

Is it possible there are two different models of the same name, a US and European model? Perhaps this is why it's misspelt "Jhon" on mine? Have I got a fake?? :doh: I just found a US ebay ad for a President John Q and it's not the same radio I have. http://cgi.ebay.com/President-JOHN-Q-CB-Transceive...

Re: Old rig in need of some TLC perhaps?

Hi Scott, Yes, I'm aware troubleshooting electronic faults may require the use of the expensive test equipment you mention (but I think I've done alright so far with my cheap multimeter :lol:). Perhaps some more experienced members might be able to help me out - give me a few pointers/alternatives -...

Old rig in need of some TLC perhaps?

Hello, I'm a bit of an odd-ball ecentric type and have a habit of collecting things other people throw away - usually consumer electronics or mechanical devices but could be anything that I think might serve me one way or another. Many moons ago I got into CB radio use which were illegal at the time...
