    texas star 500 dx path of power in amp.

    RF could be getting there to the board, but nothing would be happening if there is not any voltage getting to the transistors. If I had that amplifier on my bench, first thing I would check for is DC voltage on the outboard end of the output transformer. If voltage is indicated, it should also...

    texas star 500 dx path of power in amp.

    Please clarify for me. You are saying no power to rear board. Are you saying no voltage power to rear board ? OR, Are you saying no RF power to rear board ? A couple of good photos would be helpful.

    10 meter is very quiet?

    Made several good contacts on 10 meter today. At one time, we had a group from California, across the United states, and out to Puerto Rico.

    Antenna Experts Needed: Common mode filter issue

    The 1:1 RF choke should be placed as close as possible (within 1'-8') of the antenna coax feed point. You want to keep all the RF up at the antenna and none coming back down the shield of the coax. All my antennas are set up this way. Vertical, horizontal yagi, OCF dipole antenna. I have no RF...

    NI4L OCF 7 Band Dipole Antenna

    Went with a new NI4L OCF 7 Band Dipole Antenna this past weekend. Had to do some tree trimming because I wanted the antenna to be completely in the clear. And It is now removed from any close proximity to any metal objects and the very large metal roof on the house.

    Rci 2995 dxcf hardware upgrades questions

    I also have a 2995 DXCF that I have had for about 5 ~ 6 years. The radio as it comes with a proper alignment tuneup is the best. The ERF2030's are not an upgrade in my opinion. I have used those mofet's in a few radios, and I DO NOT LIKE them....... The IRF 520's that come in the 2995's (if that...

    Galaxy DX 98VHP

    No, he still has it. After I was able to unlock the fine clarifier control, ( thanks to info from this forum Handy Andy), and get it to track work with the coarse clarifier, I also did a full alignment and transmit power readjustment. The "dealer" turned all the power pots wide open. I adjusted...

    Shockwave, I have to hand it to ya, you do know how to pack 'em. Would've taken a bulldozer to damage the Sweet Sixteen. Thanks. This Sweet Sixteen is in pristine factory condition. Very clean. It has not had a soldering iron inside of it since it was born. Definitely an old one. All 8 original...
