Re: Hi Bands board problem

Another update, I have tweaked all the toroids and have achieved just under 5 watts on all bands with about 55% efficiency on all bands, but still no receive on 10M. I can hear band activity on all bands but 10M is dead. It's pretty simple actually, two coils plus one relay per band, it's kinda hard...

Re: Hi Bands board problem

UPDATE, I received my new relays from DigiKey and replaced the 10M relay, I also rewound two new toroids for 10M. I still have the same problem as first, I have power output on all the HI bands but only have receive on 20M and 15M. I have installed the original LO band PA board and it works great on...

Re: Hi Bands board problem

Manuel, "How did you test RX ?" I hooked up a resonant antenna(s) for the Hi Bands and double clicked the encoder cycling through the each band while listening, I hear normal band activity, noise, on each band until I reach 10M then totally quiet even with a 10 m vertical hooked up. Yes I ...

Re: Hi Bands board problem

Hi Manuel, Thanks for the response. I have thoroughly checked the solder joints of the relay and the toroid cores and even reflowed them so the problem isn't there, (also there is continuity between the pads of the toroids). Would there even be any power output on 10M if the toroids were not soldere...

Hi Bands board problem

I have finished building the Hi Bands Board from UpTech store on AE. I have power output on all bands and receive on all bands except 10 meters. Does this point to the relay for 10M? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Pre-built by New DIY Tech, crashes a lot.

Hi Kevin,

I bought one assembled from DIY Tech and one in kit form Up Tech Store on AliExpress, both are the same supplier. I have had no problems at all with either. Maybe you just got a dud, it does happen. Sunny will make good for you just contact her.

Re: Problem connecting to external PA

I have to agree with noreply, I could use a relay to make it work with all of my homebrew and HardRock 50 amps but it would be so much easier to be able to just select a logic low output in the menu instead of high. Maybe there is no program room left to implement this feature :| .

Re: Experience with Amazon kit and troubleshooting

I bought one from the same seller on Amazon, (Sunny's store), and ran into the exact same results. I'm getting about 5 watts at the bottom of all the bands and about 2.5 to 3 watts at the top of the bands, spreading the turns around didn't accomplish much so I'm going to just live with it as I alrea...

Re: Transmits all modes except CW.

I just realized the error of my post, if it was in practice mode it wouldn't transmit in any other mode. :oops:

Re: Just received new wired unit....

I bought mine fully assembled from the uellyqh store on eBay and have had no problems at all except operator error, not sure about the success rate of others.

Well Dale, It looks like you are going to be the one to answer this question yourself. Did it come with the boot loader? I'm still waiting for mine to get here. They were all out of the option 1 kits when I ordered mine so I had to take the completed radio, (option 2), so I'm wondering if it is comi...

Re: US Buy

Hi All,

I would so like to get in on one complete kit for the US buy but I'm highly confused by all this. If someone could put me down for one kit I would really appreciate it. Thanks from Joel, N6ALT
