1)Open the radio and you will find a metal case around the pll chip.unsolder this. 2)Cut the trace around pin 9 and 8 . 4)Solder a 4.7k resistor from pin 8 to ground. 5)Install a 6 posistion/ double pole rotary swicth in the radio.then run wires (the red lines) from the switch posistions to the locations on the pc board. 6)Solder a 1n914 diode from pin 1 to pin 4 on the switch. 6)Solder a wire from pins 2A to 3A to 4A to 5A.
Adjust t302, the VCO,so that the radio will TX/RX on all the extra channels. HINT:USE A PLASTIC TUNING TOOL TO MAKE THIS ADJUSTMENT OR YOU WILL BREAK THE COIL!!
Channel 1 to 40 is 26.485 to 26.925
All the regular CB channels
Channel 12 to 27 is 27.425 to 27.595
Channel 1 to 40 is 27.605 to 28.045
POSITION 5 AND 6 will give regular CB Channels
1)Find the green wire coming off the FINE TUNING control.Follow the wire to the pc board where it connects and unsolder it.
2)Find the RED wire behind the meter display and solder it to that location(there is 8VDC there)
3)Find the BLACK wire from the FINE TUNING control and unsolder it from the PCB.
4)Solder this wire to PC GROUND .
5)Find the PURPLE wire from the FINE TUNING control and unsolder that from the PC board.
6)Solder this wire to the point on the PC board where R303 and the cathode,the end with the band around it! , of D301.
This mod will give you about 3khz up/down off the "channel".
If you move the clarifier and the radio "drops out" you will need to JUMP d301 and put the purple wire back to where it was.
