    KL 503 power supply

    I'll keep that brand in mind next time I'm looking for a compact power supply. Those look like they would be great inside a large box radio.

    KL 503 power supply

    Keep a lookout for power supplies. I recently bought a Tripp lite PR40 regulated supply from Arrow shipped to my house for $88.00 unbelievable price. I think it must have been a mistake or something because they sell for hundreds of dollars. I use that power supply for my Kl503. Before that I...

    KL-203 question

    I run a 203 and my radio in the car with the cigarette lighter and the 203 is always on. I have an ex police fleet vehicle and that may help with running everything through the cigarette plug.

    President McKinley internal problem with transmit.

    Thank you for that suggestion. Probably should have tried that too. I'll live that a try when I get back in town.

    President McKinley internal problem with transmit.

    I have a President McKinley and a new kl 503. Upon testing these units together I had been using faulty coax jumpers and didn't realize it. I had purchased the jumpers from Amazon and when I tightened the coax to the end of the radio and amp the connection electronically would open the circuit...

    Another GoodWill find

    I have only bought a radio related product from Goodwill online one time and never again. I needed a power supply for one of my amps. Bought it for around 60$ for a regulated 20 amp supply. Those people put that amp in a box 2 1/2 times it's size with only 3 flat pieces of paper. Didn't work out

    Delta M2 Mic audio

    I have heard this mic over the air on a conex 3300 if there is a radio with that model number, can't remember. The guy lived about 8 miles or so from me. It sounded decent for a plug and play set up on his radio, but he had the bass turned up too high for his voice. I'm glad though they still...

    SSTV anyone?

    I have sent a few sstv signals in response to another distant local station. The only thing about this distant station is that he sends undesirable images about another person about a mile from me. I guess they don't get along well. It's still neat to hear these signals. I just use my phone and...

    I always hear buy a HF Rig for 11 meters.

    I own a Kenwood Ts-440. There are mods that most anyone can do like replacement of a few capacitors for a more fuller sound. I have replaced the 455 ceramic filter with an older cb radio ceramic filter and it was night and day difference. Talk about voodoo audio and beyond, that's all I did to...

    Wire in an external PTT line to a CB radio

    I have and it worked out well for me. I have and older 2517 that I kinda Frankensteined with mods or improvements to my desire. With that large of a box and chassis I had plenty of room to experiment. All I did was I tapped into the microphone jack itself on the inside of the radio. I left...

    Emergency traffic

    I have always been skeptical that a real emergency could be aided with the use of amateur radio or even cb radio. Today I heard on the cb radio an actual call for help..I think. On the cb radio channel 15 at approximately 1320 I heard a guy out in Arizona calling for help. He was asking for the...

    RM Italy KL 503 Crunchy

    I had failed to mention earlier that I am running 4 rack units for superb voice communication that I want as clean as I can get. I understand I probably am the only fool trying to make a 503 sound well. This is just what I have and I try to make the best of it. I'll post the results of the...
