From: Eric Lemmon WB6FLY Date: Mon, 26 Oct 2005 Subject Mitrek low band mods I am modifying several Mitrek low-band, high-split radios for 6m service. After reading the two articles on this conversion, by KD3IJ and N1BEC, I decided to incorporate ideas from both authors. However, even though I had an original manual with the board layout in color, I found the solder-side view to be confusing. So, I scanned the images into Paint Shop Pro and flipped them to get a component-side view. Then, I used drawing tools to outline the aluminum shield cans in blue so that I could see where each capacitor was located. Finally, I outlined each capacitor to be changed in red if both authors suggested changing its value and in green if only one author changed its value. Note that only one capacitor, C166, is located inside of a shield can. Perhaps these pictorial views will be helpful to others doing the same mod. The component layout was verified in a Mitrek model T51JJA4900DK radio in a HUB1062CPR chassis. 73, Eric Lemmon WB6FLY
