have installd a few, works great. Radio will need a full alignment after this is installed.

Turned my 959 on after a couple of days and it's working again. I think that cutting on the power supply and turning on my 959 and talking on it briefly and then shutting it down must lock up the Viagra board.

Ok.
It didn't run back and forth on the frequency it usually goes to in that state(26.556mhz) since I've bypassed R133. I did check it with my MFJ-886 which showed it cycling in KC's. Which particular area on the Viagra board should I pay attention to?
On another note,the LesCom L3S-3B kit I got from LesCom is a plug and play especially for the 959 along with a 10 KC switch to get those 'A' channels.

Les Comm is a great board, but it is not plug and play, the radio will need a full alignment of the PLL sections as well as centering up the clarifier.


Do not confuse plug in modules that require alignment with the term plug and play.

I'm trying to figure out the two wires that have a female two prong connecter plug. I'm guessing that this is the power and ground wire. Don't know where the 1 kc switch leads are to be solder onto the LesCom board. I talked DTB about substituting the S/RF,CAL,SWR function for low/normal/high channel switching. It's a three position rotary switch and substituting the roger beep function for the 10 kc up function. He suggested the easy route in just mounting the channel band switch and the 10 kc switch on the radio. There's not enough info about Lester's L3S-3B for a novice to make heads or tails about how to wire this thing in but for a competent tech like DTB it would represent no problem.
Yes I'm aware that the radio would have to be realigned.
If I can order a on/off volume switch then I can replace the talkback pot have be able to switch the talkback off.

I want to be able to switch on/off the talkback as well.
