    With nomad's help I found the issue a smd resistor covered by a bad solder joint on IC5 put in at the factory by mistake and caused the issue. New look at the output signal after the fix

    eagle 5000 / galaxy turbo switch to turn off internal amp

    I read that the filter FL3 is so cheap that is why it tx's and rx's so wide. I would like to hear if any one has a saturn turbo or eagle 5000 or 2990 having any issues like hearing next channel over clearly. I changed out FL1 and FL3 and no change.

    eagle 5000 / galaxy turbo switch to turn off internal amp

    I aligned this thing 7 ways to sunday and can not get the spurs out only way is to detune it so bad output is at all most zero. I used 4 different radio procedures. Unless there is something different on the stock Sm for the radio that i am missing.
