Does anyone know how to mod this rig to get 11 meters? Only info I have found was a youtube vid and my didn't come out the same. I think there is a bit more than just moving the pins. Stupid SMT!!!

It's his money and his rig, if that's what the man wants and it works for him then let the fella enjoy his rig. I've got a mix of different rigs all for different purposes, many hams and even CB'ers will bash my "black box" radios but they do their purpose and I enjoy them.

I wanted to send out a Big Thank You to Eldorado828 & blasphemy00 for helping out! This worked out great! I am very happy with the radio and it has filled my needs when driving. My only feedback is that the speaker could be a bit better, but nothing an external speaker does not solve!
Kudos...and Thank You again!

I RECENTLY AQUIRED ONE OF THESE ALREADY CONVERTED, HOWEVER THE OUTPUT IS A LOT LESS THAN EXPECTED! CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHICH POD TO TURN TO TURN UP THE AM OUTPUT? I DO SEE ONE THAT SAYS "A/F POWER" COULD THIS BE THE WATTAGE LEVEL ADJUSTMENT? THANK YOU IN ADVANCE I'M NOT THE TYPE TO WORK ON MY OWN RADIOS AND I HATE THE GOLDEN SCREWDRIVER SO I'M TRYING TO BE CAREFUL HERE

Whatever you do, don't just start guessing and spinning potentiometers.... you'll be in a world of a mess.

What board number?

Cbt will have something close enough to go off of.

THE OUTPUT IS A LOT LESS THAN EXPECTED!

How much less?

And what kind of RF wattmeter are you using? Can make a big difference. Most wattmeters will accurately show the dead-key wattage. But what they'll show with voice modulation is all over the map. Some meters will accurately read the "peak" power that the radio claims, some meters just won't.

And a properly calibrated "average"-reading meter that was never meant to read peak power may show only 25% of what's claimed as the radio's modulated peak power output. Even when a radio's transmitter is delivering everything it's meant to.

R/f Power is your power output, this is variable with most radios, check a power metre for correct wattage.
