O.K. I took radio, coax, and antenna to the shop and had it all tested. The radio was purchased and peaked and tuned by Sparkys. Here's the findings
Modulation was 60% at max and had flat spot at top and bottom of scope
peak power was 2 watts swinging to 13
receive hadn't been touched
meter was WAY off an S9 would show an S3
Diode installed for?
cold solder joint on diode
PLL had 2 cold solder joints like it had been removed and replaced? SSB
carrier pot was broken
Tech said it looked like someone had attempted to install swing kit but forgot to put parts in radio.
Radio has since been fixed and works fine. So let's see I feel like I put my foot in my mouth for defending Sparky's. Refurbished DX949 peaked tuned and unlocked clarifier from sparky's plus shipping = $128.84 then add another $50.00 at my local shop to fix the radio so it would work correctly.
Many people swear by Al at Sparky's but this will be my last purchase from him and on top of that my wife bought this for me for Christmas and feels she got ripped off since I had to spend more money on it.
