Subject: EXPANDED TX ON THE ALINCO DJ-191
Here's how to do it!
To enable the expanded TX (MARS / CAP) on the Alinco DJ-191 Ht you must
perform the following: Remove the ant. and the battery. Remove (4)
screws from the back cover. Remove the back cover. This is a bit
tricky as the front half of the HT is connected to the RF deck via a
flex circuit opposite the PTT button. Also the dust caps on the BNC
conn. and under the Tuning knob will cause the case to be difficult to
separate. Be patient. Once opened you will see a short blue jumper
wire marked "J1" on the silkscreen to the right of the large (approx.
1" square) surface mount chip on the front half of the HT. Cut this
wire. Dress the ends so that they don't short to something else and
smoke you rig! Use some heat shrink tubing or electrical tape to
protect the ends. Re-assemble the HT. Re-attach the battery and ant.
Perform a reset by pressing and holding the function button while
powering on the unit. This will reset and wipe out any programming
that was previously stored. Sorry, but that's what you have to do! The
unit should now TX on the MARS /CAP freq.'s. I had to do two resets
before the extd. TX worked.
DONT DO ANY OF THIS IF YOU DO NOT HAVE MARS / CAP FREQ. PRIVILIDGES!
AND DONT DARE TX ON ANY COMMERCIAL FREQ.'S EVEN IF YOU HAVE A LICENSE
TO DO SO AS THIS RADIO IS NOT TYPE ACCEPTED!
