MC145106  Circuit
To protect the PrinterPort:
Cut the trace between IC3 (MC145106) and IC6/IC7 (MC14008) ....
MC145106  Circuit
and insert 8 pcs. 4,7kW resistors across the cutted traces. If pin 9 is connected, cut the trace and insert 4,7kW resistors across.


Connection to the PrinterPort Squelch and PTT circuit
MC145106 Connection Circuit Connect a 4,7kW resistor to the SQ-circuit.

Use also a 1N4148 or similar diode to protect the input from the PTT-Switch.

Connect a wire from PrinterPort pin 14 to MC145106 pin 6 to obtain 5kHz and 10kHz frequency Step.

MC145106  Circuit
To protect the PrinterPort:
Cut the trace between IC706 (MC145106) and IC707 (MC74164) on the CPU- and PLL-board....
MC145106  Circuit
and insert 9 pcs. 4,7kW resistors across the cutted traces.


Connection to the PrinterPort Squelch and PTT circuit
MC145106 Connection Circuit Connect a 4,7kW resistor to the SQ-circuit.

Use also a 1N4148 or similar diode to protect the input from the PTT-Switch.

Connect a wire from PrinterPort pin 14 to MC145106 pin 6 to obtain 5kHz and 10kHz frequency Step.


Setup
The off-set-frequency oscillator IC10 oscillates at:
13.560MHz for Galaxy DX
14.410MHz for Ranger
14.460MHz for Alan 97
15.450MHz for Cobra 148GTL-DX
for all band.
The off-set frequency signal is obtained at IC10 Oscillator and flows into IC10 Mixer where it is beat with the VCO signal. The VCO signal is obtained from the following:
fvco = foff-set + Nfr
Where:
f vco = VCO frequency
N = programming code for divider output
fr = reference frequency step (10kHz).
When the different radios use different off-set X-tals, go to SETUP
Stup
and select off-set X-tal.
