Default Old school president Grant DX PC 999 board


Are there any swing mods or an NPC mod that can be done to the Grant Export?

Why would you want too?

of all the ssb export radios Uniden/President made the Grant has the nicest punchiest AM of all (imo), you could listen to someone talk on a Grant all day and never tire of its AM tx audio.

Swing mod,what for,set it as close to 100% modulation as you can with an 8 watt carrier and watch that baby swing to almost 32 watts with very little if any distortion from those matched pair of 2sc1969 or 2sc2312's.

Not sure if you guys had a single final version Grant,I'm sure you did and I'd expect it might even out compete the export versions, having never got hold of one I can't be sure, but if I recall it was the same board as the legendary cobra 148 gtl.

Why destroy such beauty ?

you have not said what PLL is in your grant. if it is the 858 PLL here is all the mods that are available for it on radionuts sight. there is not a lot because it does not need much if it is the 858 PLL.

I read your post before I put the link to radionuts sight. I asked what PLL it has in the radio. also I told you this is all that can be found on the radio you have unless it has another PLL in it. I have a friend that has been repairing radios at his shop for over 40 years and he does not know of a swing mod or NPC mod you asked for. he said the radio is about as good as you can get it. it should have good swing and audio as it is unless there is some bad electro caps in it , such as 10 volt caps get weak at the age of your radio.

I finally found a pc999 schematic. it shows your radio to have a 8719 pll. without having a picture of the circuit board to see the layout. I looked at the schematic and if you lift the leg of r279 the right one and put a 1n4001 in series with it should give you more swing. looks as if it would lower the dead key and swing more.put the cathode end in the open hole you pulled one leg of r279 out of. solder the diode and resister together at the top. its worth a try. not responsible for any problems you may incounter doing the mod. I am not aware of your experiance with radio mods. which I feel is not much since you are asking what to try.

this should work simular to the galaxy R238 diode mod.
