HAMS fought for decades to end controled carrer modulation on many AM mode radios only to see swing kits bring it back ....
The Ranger is a nice low end radio leave it alone .....
A late 50's Heathkit controlled carrer transmiter .... on left.
don't degrade a great radio with a garbage swing mod.
Those "Swing Kits" are hocus pocus for the truck driver and AM user's that have the mentality of "if it dont swing it isnt working"
A proper tune and align, NOT at a truck stop will do you just fine on SSB
Also DO NOT cut the limiters :bdh:
It don't mean a thing if you ain't got that swing!
Very good !
now doug doesnt automatically do this to the radio. but upon
request im sure he would.but as stated it garabe and not needed
Don't cut the limiter. If the limiter is cut along with doing the NPC swing mod for asymetric modulation; then either have a tech set it up and do the work and make sure that the modulation doesn't square wave - or get a scope and do the work yourself.
The quality of this mod is all in the details; it is not just a matter of snipping some parts and putting other parts in.
It is about getting the right wave form from the swing mod. When done correctly, the difference can be amazing. If done wrong, it will sound like junk.
Either do it right - or not at all . . .
The 2950 is a great SSB rig out of the box with the basic 11 meter mod done,I had one a while back and just run SSB with it and loved it !! Got good reports on audio quality with a stock mic.
Robb hit the nail on the head!!
If I was you just give it a tune-up and call it good!
An npc mod with the 2950's variable will allow you to use amps that work good with different dead key input wattage requirements.
If you are going to use the radio 99% for ssb, why would you even care about AM anyway?
