I'm trying to figure out the difference really between this and the 979F. When you do the "conversion" you get C/D/E which equates to LOW/CB/HIGH and basically 10m is gone.
I know the 86v is dual final vs single in 979F
This would be used as a base in a normal room that is 65-70'F. Short burst contacts and no long QSO's.
I know the 86v after conversion isn't per se normal (like some exports) as you don't have the A channels.
The boards do have different EPT numbers on them but look pretty close except for the add-on board on the 86v.
The 979F has talkback and that's about all I can see.
Did Galaxy just take a 99v2 board and cram it or is it another 55f/66v2 with 10m actually on that little add-on board??
The 979F board ends in 92915Z
The 86v board ends in 99910A
I know a few on here have this so can anyone chime in??
Already have a lead on a good and properly tuned 86v with only mod being fully open clarifier for fine/coarse and 10k switch on back.
