Want to get more out of this radio have never worked on any radios before. How would I go about it and how complicated is this. I wand to get a little more power and modulation
It gets out OK just need more volume want it to sound cleanNever seen one before. No idea what to suggest, except to recommend getting a linear if you want more power. You need to double your power for anyone to see the first tiny before-and-after difference. Most amplifiers multiply the radio's power by a factor of ten or more.
No way the radio is built with the "reserve" capacity to deliver double the power without damage. No way.
And a smaller increase just can't pay for itself.
Most popular mods have more to do with either making the modulation louder or altering the tone response of the transmit audio. Any added power may look significant when the wattmeter increases by a quarter or a third. But that part of the before-and-after won't make the meter at the receiving end rise by more than the width of the pointer. But increasing the modulation will make a difference they can hear at the other end.
Good chance that this model uses a main circuit board that's the same as another model and/or brand that HAS the tech info available. Look for the letters "EPT" printed on the white screen-print of the pc board's component side. Sometimes it's printed on the solder side. The numerals following the "EPT" prefix will reveal if the guts of this radio are familiar.
If you talk AM mostly just turn up the modulation pot slightly - or add a power microphone. I did a review on one a while back, it is basically a Galaxy 959 inside. Mods for those are everywhere.
Sure, it can and that's a way to go.Not sure if the NPC-RC mod can be done on that radio or not.
Wow, a FCC-legal 40-channel radio that says "Connex" on it?
I had associated that name with outlaw radios only. New one on me.
As all ranger built radios there will be a little drift until it's warm then it will perform well. So many quick to bash the ranger built radios but I along with others here on this forum can say I've worked many a station on ssb with a Galaxy and even a once available connex cx-33ssb base radio. Does it drift a little? Yes, but once warm it will perform and perform well in my own testimony.Yes imagine that the ssb in decent

|Solar activity during the past 24 hours was at moderate levels with a few low level M-Flares detected around AR 3311. The active region, now directly facing our planet, will remain a threat for additional M-Flares during the next 24 hours.A new sunspot region located in the southeast quadrant was numbered 3315 on Tuesday. During the past 12 hours, rapid spot growth was observed and is now likely capable of producing minor C-Flares. This region will be monitored for further development.|
