    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.

    I changed it to 2 50 ohms works fine, I did find a schematic of another it seems to have an extra circuit in it using IC2 a pic and 4Mhz xtal some kind of clock timing function?

    In this amp there are 2 resistors R2 and R3 (maybe a voltage divider for the Hi Lo Sw3 whick looks like Hi Lo input adjust?) the schematic shows the values of 68 Ohms each but in the amp it has R2 15 Ohms and R3 47 Ohms. Was this done to change the input range? What would two 50 ohms do there...

    eagle 5000 / galaxy turbo switch to turn off internal amp

    I will toss it on the SA and see what the spacing is on tx and thanks for looking also I noticed A choke missing on the radio L33 that is on the schematic not sure if it matters but it is in the circuit that you adjust VC3 for the lowest harmonic at 54MHZ so says the alignment page using a...

    I will use this old thread.. I have a eagle 5000 that txs and rxs way to wide you pick up clean 3 channels in either direction and tx the same plus tx tosses spurs all over the place with or with out the shorting bar in on my spectrum analyzer and not really spurring on the harmonics no real...
