AE497 PCB 2SC1969 2SC2166 2SC2314 KIA7217 uPC1037H Dual OP-AMP Dual OP-AMP KTA6058 LC7232 BA403

To get 400 Channels, insert SJ3.

General programming guidance of LC7232 devices with Seung Yong CPU SYSTEM SY202/SY204.
The processors SYSTEM 202 (204) with label Seung Yong are customized mask-programmed CPU's on base of the LC 72322 CPU from Sanyo.
Programming are those pin 32, 33, 34 of the CPU.
The indicated bridges must be manufactured from the links indicated in each case to +5 Volt or GND.

RF Power modification

Remove J71. Solder a wire width 1kohm resistor from top of J71 to J3. Then re-adjust SSB Power output to 15 Watt.
Replace RV4 width 4,7kohm adjustable resistor to get external adjustment of output power for FM and AM

Frequency extension to 454 Channels

AE 497 can be switched temporarily from frequency mode 28-29.7 MHz into "channel mode". After the conversion, the radio can be used from 25.165 MHz to 29.695 MHz.
It may happen that the transceiver operate with less performance (output and sensitivity) or does even not lock in on all frequencies outside of the specified amateur radio range.
Just press FUNCTION button, then press "2" and hold this key pressed for about 3 seconds. Release button and the unit works on 454 Channels until the radio will be later switched off again. If You have once switched to 454 channels, You can also toggle between channel number and frequency display by pressing FUNCTION + 2, but this only by touching the call button for short time.
