I sometimes run JS8 call on 11m. A few times now I have shut down my radios (power supply disconnected from wall), but my SignaLink is still on. Yesterday I left for work and still received a whole bunch of 11m meter activity. A couple of weeks ago I had no radios on my desk and just the...
I just put a new front bezel and display PCB in my old 955, I forgot how much I liked using this radio. Besides tons of voice contacts, I have worked some of Europe and Australia with JS8Call and SSTV with this radio as well.
Don't buy it, I bought one and it's terrible. I saw it on a scope and it's not AM or FM, if looks like it's doing both at the same time no matter what the modulation setting is, and it was off frequency. Go for the President Randy, they have an AM/FM model now.
Does anyone know of a better replacement than Stryker's part to fix the encoder? My old 955's encoder is almost unusable. I could buy one from Stryker for $10 and replace it, but if anyone has any suggestions for a better part I am all ears. Thanks.
I use that same setup for JS8Call and ROS sometimes. It works well. Keep your digital mode TX around 10w, if you go too much higher you will get a hot radio and splatter. I have a fan behind it blowing on the radio when I do digital stuff.
I did the same thing to one of those amps, i used some big sheet metal screws that were able to thread between the fins of the heatsink and hold the fan there and ran the wires inside to connect to the 12v. One set of power wires and fan is always on. Great little amp for what it is.
