The sole purpose of this modification is to keep the radio looking entirely
stock. Since there is no extra switches or holes drilled, this is a
definate positive. What really sets this modification above the rest,
is the 3 digit channel display. While on the normal 40 channels, noone
would even know the radio has 192 channels. Go below or above the normal
40, you will have a third digit activate showing the proper position.
Even the Alpha Channels show the corresponding "A" next to them. Its even
better, because the frequencies are in order and start from 26.175 and in
10kc steps work all the way through to 28.085 with no skips or the need to
flip a 10kc switch. There is even info on how to make the TX/RX LED a
pushbutton so you can use it to select bands. All of this using the radios
stock channel selector, no need to buy a special type of selector. There
is also information on programming your own Eproms and you can set them up
to use some of the positions as favorite channels and still have entire
coverage with no ill effects.
If this mod is making you skeptical, we even have a version called
"The Poormans 192 Channel Modification". The poormans mod covers
all the same frequencies, but uses 3-3 Position Mini Toggle Switches.
A single trace cut is required for this modification though. But if
you cant afford the all the extras for the full blown mod, this may be
the one for you.
Radios this will work in are as follows:
Here is some more info.... Ever had one of those Washington's or 140 GTL's
that just wouldn't slide after you unlocked the clarifier, or wouldn't
center slot on one of the modes after it was choked? If you have one of
these radios, we got info for you to correct the slide restriction issue
and center slot correction all in one....
If that hasn't got you thinking, How about some modifications you just cant
find anywhere? Due to the allready large group of CB Radio Enthusiast and Technicians in
the group, we have uncovered long lost modifications, New modifications,
User submitted modifications, Parts Sources and tons more. Even a new
version of this excellent modification coming soon for the uPD858 PLL.
Have we got you hooked yet?
Okay, how about the modification for the newer Galaxy FC-347 or Texas Ranger
FC-390 Frequency Counter with the board # EPT210014D so you can hook it up
on a 148 GTL or 2000 GTL? Or even some custom built radios unlike any other?
If not, take a look at some examples of this modification in several different
radios and a couple custom radios.... Pictures are below.....
