Re: Fix for Spurs and Harmonics on V3 Board
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Harmonics.--I have already ordered the new Axiom relays, so I will try replacing the relays first. I have a good desoldering gun, solder wick, and chipquick, so I should be ok there. If that doesn't do the job, I can alway add the outboard relays. Allison mentioned moving the relays to the bottom of the board, so I may add that to the fix.
Spurs.--Also, both she and Kees mentioned moving the toroids to the bottom of the board. I may do that first before replacing them. I do want to do Farhan's V5 fix; it seems simple enough.
However, I don't know if there is a local spectrum analyzer available to check the results. I'll have to pursue that with the local ham club. I am looking at using a rtl-sdr and Spektrum as a test instrument if I can't find a local spectrum analyzer. I already have the rtl-sdr.
As to parts, I need the replacement toroids and parts to do Farhan's V5 fix. I assume most hams are like me and order parts like that 10 at a time (just in case). If you have parts to spare, please contact me privately to discuss.
I don't think I will attempt the trap fix until I hear from others who have done it.
Thanks for the input, Dale
