Thats nice pal,at least the module lets you have General Coverage Receive :)
Cheers mate :thumbup:
Theres an easy mod to enable TX on 12m, so I'll do that at one point. Yeah, the General Coverage module adds a bit of flexibility.

Today I have mostly been buying a Radioddity x Baofeng RD-5R. Now if I could find some useful codeplugs for the Manchester area I would be a happy camper.
S9 R5 next...

:lol: Nah your alright pal ;) had loads of those 101ZD's ,nice hybrid HF sets :) it looks like yours was originally the economy Z version (analog frequency scaled version) and somebody has added the digital counter unit to make it the ZD version as if it had come from the factory with the digital counter unit fitted then the badge would of said ZD,not that it makes any difference as it's still the same radio :)

Hi Drew pal, i could'nt resist to give it a home ;) yep i have the original RX front end pcb here,not a patch on sensitivity compared to the Mutek,just keeping it as i spare in reserve should anything ever happen to the Mutek pcb,saying that when i acquired the Mutek PCB it was deaf as the BF981 N-Channel Mosfet Dual Gate Transistor had failed,i bought a genuine Philips BF981 off Ebay for just £6.90 & fitted it to the Mutek & it sprang back to life,so (touch wood) should be alright for years to come :)

Regards,Shaun.

:lol: Yep i miss nowt ;) ,think i have an actual proper 101ZD badge here somewhere,(or should have) as i break radios for parts that i sell on ebay,they are only held onto the front panel with light glue,so not hard to remove.
