Remove 2 mtr module, remove top cover. At the PA end of module, you will find q01, it is a mosfet, 3sk74l2x. Replace this with a BF982. The leads are a little thicker, but can be worked in. Use a 1mm drill to open the holes. The long lead of the BF982 should be installed facing away from the PA Module.

When the fet is fitted a very small length of wire should be installed from the source lead to the surrounding groundplane. reinstall 2 mtr module and enjoy the low noise, improved signal reception.

  • @ beakster1715:
    ...ebay. I will also file a case/complaint with my local sheriff's dept tomorrow. I'm good friends with the sheriff so I hope you'll be able to help me in this process. This guy has been a criminal (at least on eBay) for over11 years. I see the first post on here regarding his criminal behavior was in 2011. Has anybody else filed a complaint against this low-life scam artist? Any suggestions/help on getting my $$$ back would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
