    No one has done the change over? I know i can mount one on the heat sink, i just thought it would be easier to have it on a board.

    (y) Thanks guys for the replies, i have all of rogerbirds mods on one of my computers. I wasn't doing it for a power increase, it was for spare parts if needed, i all ready have the 497 in it, which is funny because i still run the factory power setting out of it, just runs cooler. I haven't run it mobile in over 2 years just power them ( i have 2) up for a weekend to keep them "fresh". I just thought it would be nice to have a spare around but it's not that important to me.

    RF Parts in California should have the final. If they don't have your RF part....then it may not exist.

    wow! I can't believe anyone would read this old post. My origninal 2510 with the chip switch, and the detector diode mod has a 497 in it. not that i really need another since i no longer run a 2510, but i know that it works and i have a spare. kinda like my boomer 250 sittin on a shelf next to a TS 350hdv and 500hdv with active biasing(peekaboo). I'd rather let them sit then have some punk run around the neighborhood splattering.
    But thanks for the reply, I already have an account with RF parts since i get most of my parts from them.:)

    There is a fellow that can get MFR477s, $38 plus shipping AND in limited supply... I too worry about my 2510s, all three and a HTX-100.

    :D thanks for the info about someone still having a surplus. I might have to pull out one of them since the XYL got her license. Just set it up as a dedicated tech radio.
