    KL-7505 warble/crunch

    Yes Greg T, I recognize the avatar and you were the thread I was reading about that had the similar issue. Yes I agree, voltage and current not keeping up. I can't remember I am bad with remember gauges but it was pretty heavy stuff and I'm pretty confident its up to the task.

    KL-7505 warble/crunch

    This is with the motor running, so around 14.7 volts. That's why I wonder if something in the amp is failing and the voltage isn't keeping up with modulation at higher wattages.

    KL-7505 warble/crunch

    I have a KL-7505 that, I have some questions on. I set this amp up with a 2950dx with a md-1. I set the radio using my scope and it sounds fine and I normally run about 200% modulation. When I paired this combo up to the 7505. I found the amp really only likes to run to about 20 watts dead key...

    i set back n read adds selling radios thinking huh?

    Prices of used equipment is out of this world. I almost don't even bother looking at Ebay anymore. People will spend as much new on a piece of used equipment and I don't get it. I've had good luck buying used equipment locally from private sellers face-face or yard sales. People are paying the...

    Rci 2995 dxcf hardware upgrades questions

    That is a fine radio and I own the exact same one. I don't normally agree with the mantra on here "buy a ham radio" its a once size solution that doesn't always work. I think your looking for a respone to your 2995 query which I will attempt to answer as a owner. I would keep your money those...

    First AM/FM FCC Approval

    While I am not disagreeing with your post. My local observations are local to my state. I recently got back on CB, been a ham for 27 years. The local activity is lively here and new people are getting on weekly, there is even an informal weekly net. There also appears to Massive hordes of radios...

    There is no "big heavy transformer" on the left side of the chassis.

    DX2950DX ept695015BR schematic

    Yea that is entirely possible. I can check again tonight, before I move the radio off the work bench. As an addition I just checked and now I am seeing 13.8 VDC. That was my bad! What do you want a picture of?

    Geeze, if it was a duplexed site, imagine the size of those duplexers! Maybe they ran split sites?

    DX2950DX ept695015BR schematic

    Just to put a resolution to this for people searching in the future. I ended up replacing IC7 (TDA2003). I now have audio. I left the rig on the bench for 24 hours with open squelch on the volume down to a bearable limit so I didn't go nuts. I checked the insulator and re-greased it too.

    DX2950DX ept695015BR schematic

    I popped the cover on my 5054, and checked Q51 and that is outputting 24 volts. I then removed IC7 from my 2950, and used my meter on diode check and every pin open, even for case to ground pin.

    DX2950DX ept695015BR schematic

    Ya I'm not sure I'm lacking all of the documentation I need. I have a 6m version of the radio I could pop the cover off to see if they are similar.
