Re: EFJ5100 Keyloading options

There is an option in the PC Configure options under the secure section to switch from asn/slk mode to PKID mode or something like that. Switches from named slots to physical key id slots. Once this is done it allows keyloading from a T3011DX keyloader with the proper cable. I'm at work and don't ha...

RF-3200 Rig Control Software

Does anyone know if there is Rig Control software available that will work with this similar to Ham Radio Deluxe? I've got one of these I'd like to play around with but like the computer control options. Thanks!

VX-10 Alignment mode/Instructions

Ok, apparently the VX-10 service manual is long NLA, so I was wondering if anyone had a copy or knows how to place the VX-10 into alignment mode? It's some sort of jumper on the programming adapter to get it into service mode so the alignement can be performed. I have 2 here that are bugging me as t...

Re: 5100 VHF power problem

Sounds like the internal flex for the on/off switch. We have been through about 60 of these on our waranty service on our 40+ 5100 series portables with many of the repaired radios having the same issue again within a month. It was a design flaw on the radios per one of the senior tech's at EFJ who ...

RF-3200 Service Manual

Anyone know if the service manual for the RF-3200 is floating around anywhere? I have one here with no power out. Fuses check fine but that's about all the farther I want to try it without a service manual. I've got a RT-350 running so I'm not as worried but it would be nice to have a NTIA approved ...

Soundcard Packet

Anyone build one of the soundcard packet interfaces? I'm using the optoisolators with a 4N25, I can get the RS-232 to swing everything right but the resistance across the emitter and collector of the 4N25 is too high (100 ohms) and won't key my PTT circuits. I don't really want to build a relay into...

Re: GE Phoenix Programming Help

Well, I got it working. The niles2bin program didn't work right and not sure what format it is dumping into but it isn't a correct bin for the unisite programmer. I looked at the niles files and they are the HEX versions of the programming info. I divided the info into the hex words and can enter th...

Re: GE Phoenix Programming Help

Radios are Comb: N5HH1W40PB. I've got a few in gray cases, and a few in the older beige cases. Trying just to get some 155 range test frequencies in them so I can test the amps and other features to make sure the radios are good on those. Ultimately looking to program in 145.690 if the radios can do...

Trying to get caught up on my radio work, I've got 6 VX-10 VHF radios that need a good going over. Does anyone have the alignment section of the service manual they could send me?
