  3. 2M antenna comparison, Kenwood TH-K20a stock, and HYS NA-771

    i bought a Kenwood TH-K20a a little while back to replace my seemingly un-fixable (by me) former handheld. As my license is still pending, i have the "tx inhibit" function enabled.
    so, my comparison...

    do you have a handheld that can tune to the same frequency? you could use it to "sniff" around for the interference.

    I found the call sign to be KF6PHX. it is listed on http://rptrlist.w6jpl.ampr.org/440.htm, a ways down.
    and the callsign is listed with contact info (mailing address) on the FCC.gov ULS.

    I hope...

    ...Your right, i knew that. I am just getting so frustrated with this radio. I may have to cut my losses and buy a different radio that uses most of the accessories i bought for my current radio. I...

    I have bought the RF power amp module. but it is the last chance for this radio, as i can't afford to pour too much more money into it. beyond this, i will just have to save up for a different radio....

    something that occurred to me. if the RF power amp module got cooked, would it cancel out the RX as well? i can get a new module, but it is about $35. i have followed the schematics until my eyes...

    I looked over the antenna PCB solder joint very carefully under a magnifying light, and found no cracks in the solder or PCB, and no cold solder joints.

    interesting new development: HOT batteries,...

    I tested the function of all the buttons. none miss presses, and none hold presses. though the PTT (with dummy load), is problematic. it only blanks out the busy indicator for a moment, and the...

    well, i have been up one side of this radio, and down the other. still no RX audio, no TX into a meter with a dummy load, and not even any signal strength shown. i am starting to think the only thing...

    I think it would depend on what you are looking to do with your rig. personally, i would suggest a VHF/UHF radio, and get a list of your local repeaters. that way you can use your license while you...

    Sorry for the late response, i have been busy pouring through the service manual for the radio. and thanks for the kick to pull apart the radio. due to a variety of mental issues (Asperger's, A.D.D,...

    ...and the beeping continues. i guess the reset only put it off for just a bit.
    the internal voltage was fine, and it still retains memory after a main battery removal.
    perhaps it is just an...

    the reset seems to have done it :D
    the internal battery tested good.
    the buttons all look good, none stuck.

    seems to be good now, thanks!

  21. TH-28A: random beeping, like a stuck key, but no key seems to be stuck.

    ok, this is very odd. my TH-28A seems to beep randomly. like if it was on key-lock, and a button randomly made contact. though it is not on lock, and the radio does not act as though a button is...

    well, it turned out to be a number of issues, none of which was a shorted external speaker jack. though the jack needed some cleaning. i also had to clean and bend down the contacts for the battery...

    My TH-28A seems to have developed a short in the external speaker jack. so i opened it up. I am ok with larger circuits, but not so much the micro circuits. I may have to break out my magnifying lamp...

    I must say, the wait for my callsign is mind numbing. for those in the USA, what is the average turn-around before something shows up on the FCC website? i haven't found anything associated with my...
