Hi Scooby, welcome to the forum emoticon

I have this information from another web site. However make sure you knbow what you're doing, or take it to a shop and they'll do it happily for you for very little cost:

""Disassembly:

Face the front of the radio towards you.
Remove the three screws in a row across the middle of the top of the radio.
Remove the two screws at the top rear (on the sides) of the radio.
Pry the top cover off from the back.
Disconnect the speaker at the connector.

Modification:


Near the top rear of the main circuit board, there is an small, oblong metal can. Directly below the right side of this can is two surface mount diodes with a white silk-screened box around them. There is also what appears to be a circuit board part number just to the left of it (mine says B4916D). Remove the LEFT diode in the box.
To the left of this, there is a test point marked CP3. Just to the left and above this test point is another box with two *vertically* mounted surface-mount diodes (Note: there is also a place for 5 more *horizontally* mounted diodes, with 3 installed). Remove the LEFT vertically oriented diode.

Reassembly:


Reconnect the speaker.
Put the top cover back on. Insert the top cover tabs into the slots and lower into position.
Replace all of the screws.

My radio did not require a reset, however I did lose all of my channel memories. It seems to be able to transmit everywhere except below .5 Mhz. I have not tested the power output at all frequencies yet.

I hope this helps everyone who have been waiting patiently for this mod.

Any comments can be directed to me:

How you getting on Scooby?

Have you had the radio opened up? Used it yet?

What sort of aerial array do you have?
