25-Pin Printer Connector
Install a 25-pin D-SUB Male connector on the radio`s bottom cover, and use a NullModem cable to the computer`s printer port.
See Radio interfacing to Printer Port for more information about using PrinterPort.

Before modificationAfter modification
MC145106  Circuit
To protect the PrinterPort:
Cut the trace between IC5 and IC6/IC7....
MC145106  Circuit
and insert 9 pcs. 4,7kW resistors across the cutted traces.

Connection to the PrinterPortSquelch and PTT circuit
MC145106 Connection Circuit Connect a 4,7kW resistor to the SQ-circuit LC-PCB pin 8.

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

The off-set-frequency oscillator IC10 oscillates at:
13.560MHz for Galaxy DX
14.410MHz for Ranger
14.460MHz for Alan 97
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
f vco = VCO frequency
N = programming code for divider output
fr = referency frequency step (10kHz).
When the different radio`s use different off-set X-tals, go to SETUP
and select off-set X-tal.
