The mod for 12 meters is un plugin a crystal in one of the Ten slots and replacing it with the mixer crystal for 12 meters.
Converting 11 Meter band to 12 Meters for the Yaesu FT 101 series .. |
Although this procedure hardly qualifies as a "mod" (too easy), it is certainly useful for the FT 101 series owner. Conversion to the 12 meter WARC band is as simple as replacing a crystal. The 11 meter xtal is replaced with a 30.52 Mhz 3rd overtone xtal in a HC-25/U holder as specified in the FT 101 series maintenance manual. No other modifications are necessary as the new band is close enough to the original that the current components work. To replace the xtal, remove the top cover and find the xtal board located at right front of the rig.
or 11 if you want to monitor down there
For 27,000 to 27,500 Mhz use the 33.020khz crystal |
27,500 to 28,000 Mhz use a 33,520khz crystal
and So on.
NASA/SOHO When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown,
The dream is gone.
but I have become comfortably numb.
