    Better than average SSB radio

    You probably have enough opinions by now, but as someone who either owns, or has used / worked on most of the rigs mentioned in this thread, I can say that if you want "above average", then the latest Anytone AT-5555N II (V2) or CRT SS 7900V (Turbo) are the ones to get. (FYI, they are not...

    Anytone at-5555n II (version 2)

    An update on this: The 'adjacent frequency rejection' issue that I mentioned is almost entirely due to the NB (Noise Blanker) feature being turned ON. The NB works well on this radio, but the way this radio performs NB (at the IF level), causes the symptoms which sound like poor adjacent...

    CRT SS 7900V Turbo (latest version) Service Mode? (And more tricks)...

    Yes, they are the best out of box radio I have come across yet. You need the appropriate test equipment to be playing in here (which I have got). This information is for reference, and for a change, it might be more useful to allow those in the know to turn some things DOWN, rather than UP...

    CRT SS 7900V Turbo (latest version) Service Mode? (And more tricks)...

    Everything that is adjustable in the radio is done in this menu... The options in the Service Mode menu are: CH-01 CH-01 CH-02 CH-02 CH-03 CH-03 CH-04 VCOFRQ CH-05 BFOFRQ CH-06 TX-IQ1 CH-07 TX-IQ2 CH-08 TX-IQ3 CH-09 FMPOWH CH-10 FMPOWL CH-11 FMRSSI CH-12 FMMOD CH-13...

    CRT SS 7900V Turbo (latest version) Service Mode? (And more tricks)...

    Hi all, after lots of detective work and button combinations I have found out how to access the Service Mode menu! NOTE: If you do not have proper test equipment then you have no reason to be in this menu! The radio is fantastic out of the box and anything you change in here, will make your...

    HTX-10 freq expansion with resistor?

    :LOL::LOL::LOL: It never ends. Oh well, I tried. 73

    CRT SS 7900V Turbo (latest version) Service Mode? (And more tricks)...

    Somebody seems to have worked out the service mode. See this page: https://www.hamradio-shop.de/crt-7900-V.html "Adjustable FM Deviation via menu" 2.7 to 5.6 Khz. Interesting. No matter what I have tried, I still can't access Service Mode.

    Radio Shack HTX 10 Conversion

    This is incorrect. Regardless of the marking on the chip, the FIRMWARE IS DIFFERENT ON A HTX-10. It does NOT include the firmware required for anything except 28.000 to 29.699. Anyone who tells you otherwise has no idea what they are talking about and does not understand how these radios work...

    CRT SS 7900V Turbo (latest version) Service Mode? (And more tricks)...

    Yes I know about that one. I am talking about the calibration settings menu. From some experimenting I have done, here is what I have found so far... Press and Hold these keys while powering the radio ON: MENU + EMG = BAND selection (BAND 1 = 10m // BAND 2 - 12m-10m) MENU + MODE = LCD...

    Anytone at-5555n II (version 2)

    Hey BigLou, Can you please try something for me - can you please see what happens to the adjacent frequency rejection, when you turn NB (the noise blanker) ON and OFF? I would be very interested in what you find.

    CRT SS 7900V Turbo (latest version) Service Mode? (And more tricks)...

    That video appears to be gone - any help you can provide would be great!. (I have all the test gear, but no way to access the menu). I probably have one of the only 7900V's here in Australia, and I want to put it through its paces. Cheers!

    Anytone at-5555n II (version 2)

    Yeah agreed, but I didn't say it had to be a crap one like those! ;)

    CRT SS 7900V Turbo (latest version) Service Mode? (And more tricks)...

    Hi all, I have a new CRT SS 7900V Turbo (latest version with DSP) and I cannot get the radio to enter service mode. Holding the Menu and Mode buttons on power-up causes the LCD screen to show all characters and segments (like you expect) but then the radio starts normally, and does not enter...
