Re: kenwood 430s


heres a snip of a web page i found, took a few search's

"If you would like unrestricted HF transmit coverage (and remember that even if licensed, you must never transmit outside the amateur bands on non-type accepted equipment except in an emergency!), WB6NOA in March '87 WorldRadio suggests unplugging the RF Unit connector #10, though the Kenwood factory indicates that a safer mod would be to clip D39 near this connector then locate IC-2 on the Control Unit (under the IF Unit) and snip resistor R-148 near IC-2."

Re: kenwood 430s


i'm not too sure with that exact radio, if it hasnt got variable output power you could just use the mic gain to lower the output
