craig l232 agc overload

Post by dt307 » 05 Jul 2018, 00:59

this is starting to wear me out

normal to weak sigs the radio rx great

get a strong signal and its worse than anything i have heard

pc-582 mainboard schematic included

agc voltage @ d4 cathode 2.47 rising in overload state to 4v+

d16,d17 getting voltage same as above

r42 tested 4.7k good

d16-d19 removed and checked 1n6263 fitted in replace no change so std ones put back.

changed r42 to 15k and its got 30% better but if i go much higher tx goes funny.

any one?

thanks

Good stuff chris,

At one point the repair forum was one of the busiest sections on here, Few years ago you were guaranteed to get help with repairs,

Ghost town now, Sad to see,
