They have forked irons...but I just quickly add solder to both sides, quickly, and then quickly swap the iron from side to side in a quick motion, leaving the iron on each side for only a second. With the quick motion, it only takes a about three times on each side for the part to slide off. Then I usually let the part stand up on one of the pads so the part is there ready to be put back on if desired.
OK, Finaly got the nerve to do this. question, can I jus use a very sharp pointed scalpel blade and very carfully cut the one side of the solder and lift that side very carfully up just a tade. I cant or dont want to use a solder iron as I am afraid,But it looks like I could do it by cutting it.
Got it done. works except am listening is not so good. SSB is another story, much better.
I dont understand one thing. When a stronger station comes in on AM and the s meter goes up like to 7 throu 60 the meter takes its time going back slow and if another station comes in they are hard to hear and slowly get louder as the meter goes slowly back to zero. It dont do this on SSB JUSTAM.
Any ideas what it could be? maybe settings on am side of things. It wont do it on the ham bands.
