Modification
Connection Circuit

Connect Data, CLK and ENB to SM5158A PLL-Circuit (IC401).

Analog to Digital Converter Analog to Digital Converter To use the Spectrum Scoope you will need a AnalogDigitalConverter.
This is a simple ADC for reading the S-meter value. Connect the S-Meter signal (IC2 Pin 1) to the Input, and the Output to the PaperEnd signal and Reset to Data 7 on the printerport.
Use a BC107 or similar NPN Transistor (Not critical).

27.405 MHz
L701 / L702 Connect the DC Voltmeter to TP1
Adjust for 1.5 +/- 0.1 V


Frequency range
The frequency range is set to 25MHz to 30MHz because the this is the limit for the receiver BandPassFilter FT1.
When you first time start up the WINJames software, its will create 3 files;
Setup.TXT
Memory1.TXT and
Memory2.TXT.
In the file Setup.TXT you will find the that the 2 last lines is the Minimum and Maximum frequency for the software.

25000500
888
889
10000
27555000
25000000
31000000

You can change this values for the software. If you want to set the Maximum or Minimum frequencies outside the limit for the receiver BandPassFilter, you have to re-tune this filter for the new frequencies. It will also be necessary to modificate the VCO-circuit..
