CRT Superstar 7900 Export Mod

So as this radio is now out and for sale the emails come asking which button you need to press to select the band 1 and band 2 on the radio. So this is not happening with this model and you need to solder a jumper. BUT it is quite a tricky job as if the iron is to hot it damages the track and then sure it is game over in this respect

Several people have experienced this with the 5555n (new) and so it is easy to guess it came be the same with the 7900

Solder closed OP1 and do a reset. This should enable the outside of 10m option for the radio. REMEMBER it is easy to damage the track between the jumpers so take this as an advisory note.
