    Hi guys,
    I have one of these rigs, it's a first version, with the SWR board that stands up near back of the unit, You know, the one with the middle screw through the three holes in the back of the chassis?
    Does anyone have a clarifier unlocking mod for this unit?
    Also, does anyone have a schematic on this particular model.
    I've looked over YouTube nothing there I've searched Google nothing there..



    Thanks,

    Unfortunately, I don't think that anyone has found a schematic yet.

    I bet Uniden doesn't even have it. It is probably intellectual property that belongs to the Chinese company that makes it.

    That's the way the Chinese roll. So they have it in their safe....

    There is a chance that one will pop up as more companies use this chassis. I think Road King has a radio based on the 980 now.

    Freelance coders for hireā€¦ Reverse engineering software is needed. Concept: First photos are taken of the top and bottom of the circuit board. Then component values are added to the top of each part within the photo. The reverse engineering software will then takeover and convert everything into a usable schematic.;)

    Probably would be cheaper than hiring me to trace it down and draw it up the old-fashioned way. Not that it's worth anyone's while anyway.

    And Howard W. Sams Company lost interest 40 years ago.
