Cut the trace between IC3 and IC4/IC5....
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 fron the PTT-Switch.

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