mods are the same for all three radios. All three radios use the same
main board (EPT6900-10Z)
- Locate J2.
Its located up front of the radio almost in the center. Move the
Jumper over to the other set of pins.
- Remove the
frequency counter module from the radio.
- Now you will
see J29. Move the jumper diagonally across from where it is now.
- Re- install
the frequency counter and put the radio back together.
You may remove
Q39 for more modulation.
If you change
D30 and D31 from 1N60s to ECG-583 diodes, this will improve your AM
detection. Distant stations will come in stronger and clearer. If
you use ECG-583 for D1 and D2, it'll give you a more effective noise
blanker. You'll notice more of a difference in a mobile installation
than a base set-up.
Super Swing Modification
R264 and lift the right leg (as you are viewing the radio, component
side up and front of radio facing you) of the resistor from the board.
Solder a 1N001 diode in series with the resistor, being sure to place
the banded end of the diode in the vacated main board hole. This will
allow you to lower the dead key and still have the full swing.
