VXR-9000U Reference Freq Adjust

Anyone have any experience doing this adjustment procedure on a VXR-9000U ??? I can get into the dealer alignment mode but when in the tab "TX PD Det." I cannot get the "TX PLL Ref Frequency ADJ" to work at all - simply can't get the repeater to key up on any of the tabbed adjustment frequencies in ...

Harris Unity XG-100 Receiver specs

Anyone out there in radio land have or can point me to an info source
for the receiver selectivity specs per band on this model?

I have googled and down loaded quite a few pdf docs but all seem to be
absent of this one aspect of receiver specs.

Re: 8 pin mic jack retaining nut tool ????

Thanks for the reply, however neither of those two tools in those links will do the job as the hex nut is made of a soft brass metal and with the needle nose pliers i have used i have already done some damage to the 4 slots. In addition this nut sits below the faceplate of the radio in a very narrow...

Vertex VXR-9000U DCS Turn Off Code Timing

OK - Using a Vertex VXR-9000U UHF repeater with a variety of Motorola HT's and Mobiles. I seem to have got the turn off code phase(120) and timing (200ms) right in the Vertex CE60 programing but still am able to hear in the motorola receiver(using an XTS5000 as a test radio) the actual 134Hz turn of...

Re: KENWOOD TK 715 ON 2MTRS

I found this on a google search - doesn't seem like they would be a 2mtr conversion candidate.

Re: IC-208H Adjustment Mode Test Jig

Confirmed the correct value resistor is 22K ohm and NOT 2.2K ohm. Once I put this in place the radio goes into adjust mode perfectly per the service manual procedure.

IC-208H Adjustment Mode Test Jig

Per the sevice manual on page 5-2 I built the test jig using the correct 2.2K ohm resistor. Confirmed all connections but can not get the radio into adjustment mode. The freq is off by -1.5Khz and I need to warp it back on freq. I used the correct procedure on page 5-1 by pushing & holding the SET a...

Re: S825 Control Head Audio Amp failure?

Hi Group, Turned on the S825 control unit I have in the truck today and I have EXTREMELY low audio (like you have to put your ear to the speaker to hear it), even at full volume. Nothing has changed in the install, there are no shorts, etc. Do these things have an audio PA in them that goes bad? I ...

Re: What search terms do you use?

If I am looking for a specific model mostly manufacture names combined with model numbers - IE: "IFR" "1900CSA" I will also work variations of model numbers - such as eliminating the csa above and just enter 1900. If I want to cruise through just the manufacture then I just enter the manufacture nam...

Re: Milcom 220Mhz RF Amps

Yes - thanks. The amp works flawlessly, still have it at the shop. Ran my last test with a 25.5VDC 25A supply and with 150mw input got about 95 Watts clean output. I will eventually install in my rack at the site but I will have to take the entire rack apart and move everything around to get it to f...
