Re: Negetive Feed-back.

Best transaction I have ever made.

I just completed a transactio with Kenneth bachand, KJ4JGN.
He offered an Alinco DR-06T for sale, AS-NEW.
we haggled a little, and I purchased the unit.
Upon arrival, it looks as if I ordered it from a Ham Radio
supplier.
This radio was MINT.
Great deal all around.

SPOOKY D-104

Hi, you have crossed wires in the base of the mic.
double check circuit diagram on mic base plate and
besure the radio schematic matches.
careful if you arnt careful, you will cross also at the
mic plug. I would check there first.
Good luck

this will give you true fm audio. mine worked without the
mod, but it is very tinny sounding due to the terrible
mis-match of impedience.
