Alinco DX-70TH and DX-70T TX and RX MODS
|Note: I pilfered this from: http://www.hampedia.net/alinco/dx-70th-tx-and-rx-mod.php|
Note 2: I added the expanded 45-60MHz function (Item 6D).
HF: Extended TX, open the RX up to 35Mhz and down to 30 Khz, Open the VHF side from 45-60 Mhz RX/TX. All can be done quickly by removing or changing a series SMD resistors located in the detachable front face panel. This mod is a little tricky to perform, since it uses surface mount devices. I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY IF YOU BREAK YOUR RIG. Alinco, further, in their mod sheet, warns that performing this mod incorrectly will NOT BE COVERED via warranty. Then again, this rig is 20+ years old. So, good luck with warranty coverage. Use a very fine point iron of about 15 or 20 watts max! Make sure it is grounded too.
I do not take responsibility if you perform this mod incorrectly, and I am not responsible for your operation practice if you choose to illegally transmit out of band.
