Noooooo!
I'm not about to do something without finding out first what I need to know. I've worked on $3000 car stereo installs enough to know that you don't hook things up wrong and not expect smoke. I was just thinking about me installing the LesCom board and then send it to DTB to dial it in. I'm asking questions. One thing i do want to do is buy another on/off volume pot for this radio and change out the talkback pot so that I can switch off the talkback.

Once you let out the smoke, it can't be put back in. It's gone forever.

I had an electrician tell me that when he first got onto a ship that was all 220v with converters everywhere for the stupid Americans.

Been a few years but I think the the anl nb filter switch plugs into the les comm board.

then this becomes your normal, then high/low ch switch.

there is detailed instructions on how to install included with every kit.

Even on his sight is instructions

Yeah,but it's going in a brand new Ranger TRE-936ffc which is similar to a 959 but instead of a slider switch it has a push button to switch the ANL/NB on. I can get another on/off volume switch and mount that where the mike gain is and use that for mic gain and switched a talkback volume switch. Get another three position S/RF,CAL,SWR switch,change out the talkback volume switch and use that as a band switch. Clip the roger beep leads and solder those together and use the roger beep push button switch for a 10 kc up switch.

Of course,as cheap as Copper is selling these 936's I could buy another and keep it stock.


P.S. I might get one for my 959 but I'll check for cold solder joints on the 959's Viagra board first and put a 10 ohm resistor where I have the R133 bypass jumper soldered in.


Just pondering.

I have two as well as many others, also. But US stuff is all 110 plugs, but you can charge just about all your electronics with 220 and a small adaptor. But there was always someone forgetting and turning the smoke loose with a shaver or something. Elec Tech smoked a big screen TV once.

Silly foreigners and their goofy electrical outlets.
