Alinco DR 135 UK help.

Post by listner132 » 06 Jan 2018, 11:26

Hi guys i have just bought said radio from gumtree the radio works great power on ssb is 50w pep but the guy said that he had the fm pwr turned down to 5 watts so he could use a bv 131 linear. I dont use or even own a linear and would like to set the pwr on fm around 30 watts pl;ease can anyone point me in the correct direction as these radios dont have anything printed on the board next to small vr's unlike the any clones..

thanks.

You need to set the power to around 10w max on FM and about 25w SSB otherwise the transistors won't last long.

Sorry I can't help with the pots, but I was under the impression that they were marked, albeit in small print.

There is no such thing as a Fidelity 1000 which is too good to scrap.
