President Lincoln II V3 Echo Modification.

Some people complain about the large amount of echo even at the smallest settings in the menu. IF you are good at soldering then look at R630 and this is a 2k ohm resistor, swap it out with a 195k ohm resistor and the echo behaves much much better. Remember, invalidates warranty, small part, skill needed. Not for the faint of heart.

  3. Regarding the power bridge module for CRT Xenon:

    You´ll have to correct me if i am wrong here, but the “power bridge module” is actually just a toggling relay, whit a Indication LED, that opens and closes the connection between B1 and B2 to control the Hi / Lo Output power? Wouldn’t it work just as fine withe an ordinary on / of switch between B1 and B2?

    Best regards

  4. Hi Simon, wow was not expecting such a fast response ! Thanks for the info, I found the Mr A mod, but it seems in the pictures he leaves the white bridge cable cut and just has a SPST swtich accross pin 2&3 of the jumper ? Which I’m not sure how this returns the radio to EU norms, is this really all that is takes? I thought one would have too remake the connection in the white wire (via a switch) and also the connection between jumper pins 1&2 (also via a switch). I also found the details of adjustment on the post “HF Doktor Grant II Premium Adjustments *UPDATED*”. The HF Doktor mod does sound nice, where would one purchase such a kit ? (Apologies for clogging up the comments thread, I’m not sure if there is somewhere else to discuss this?) Thanks again, Mark.

  5. Hi Simon, First off just to say what a fantastic blog you’ve built here, I really enjoy it. I have just purchased a President Grant 2 premium and would like to (perhaps) expand it (radio is obviously well out of warranty). I’ve trawled the blog here and watched your videos for info. So I have learned how to expand the radio, and from your info know it will retain the UK 40, great! My question is, if I join the white bridge cable with a simple SPST switch and connect 3 wires to the jumper pins with a SPDT switch, I should, in theory, be able to return the radio to its factory EU norms ? Would you agree ? The expansion of the radio increases the power thus not letting me (in theory) run a linear on the normal CB band, if I were to use the 2 switches, I can return it to legal power and in theory run a linear.
    My other thought was that if the radio was expanded, if there was a way to turn the power back to legal spec while it was still in export configuration, it would enable one to just run a linear all the time without the faff of wiring in switches, but I cannot find any info on this.
    Any help/advice much appreciated.

    Like

    • Hi Mark Good Morning. Thanks for writing. As per the expansion your right on all.

      So if you unsolder the wire and place a new jumper across where the standard one is now you can indeed switch it. On the blog it’s called “Mr A Grant mod” I think or something like that. Up position = legal and Down = export mode for example.

      All the variables are on the blog showing what turns up and down the power so yes you can set in export mode 12w SSB and 4w FM/AM for example. Just need change the export ones and in EU nothing changes at all.

      OR you can purchase via HF-Doktor his switch mode modification that allows turn on with PTT press and it’s export mode and turn on with F press it’s in multi-norm mod.

      So your right on all. Yes you can switch it, yes you can turn down the power and run an amp. Absolutely as you told.

      Regards
      Simon

  6. Thank you so much for the CRT Millennium mod.
    I can confirm that it works on a new V3 which just arrived – Easy to do with jumper blocks.
    Retained the usual CB norms, but with an extra bit of oomph.

    It is a shame that most of the other radios out there need soldering to mod, so it is not easy to “undo”. The Millennium is good in the respect that with the power mod, the CB norms are untouched.

  10. Hi Simon

    I asked the question about the Mars mod for the FTDX 101D. The mod on your blog is for the European Version. I’m in Australia, so is it the same. Also is it a straight solder for the jumper or is it like the YAESU FT 891 where you can just short the jumper whilst doing a reset on the radio. Most people say you have to solder the jumper on the ft891.
    Hopefully the Yaesu FTDX 101D is the same.
    Please let me know.
    Thanks Simon

    • Hi David. It can be adjusted in factory mode to make it higher. But these radios are sold in legal limits so are quiet. Sadly I’m not allowed to say how to access the factory mode as many have tried and it’s caused other issues.

    • Hi Frank. As I say in export mode you’ll get the UK band as part of it, higher output power that’s why heatsink and frequencies from 25.6-30.1 guess best idea is buy the radio expanded so dealer has checked out the power etc and all is well. That’s the best idea of all
