FT-1000MP mods

 

 

In this page you can find some pics of the mods that you can make to the FT-1000MP/Mark V

First of all the ďIF-MODĒ by INRAD, itís a simple add-on board, doesnít require any important intervent,

who increase the front-end gain of the rig, and reduce the background ďhissĒ of the receiver, in a few words itís increase the capability to receive low signal that, normally, are lost in the noise,  you gain 1-2 db of dynamic range.

 

Iím not a radio technician, I donítí have any prof. equipment, but the improvement is so big that I suggest it to everyone, the receiver is much more quiet, itís nice to work 40m without attenuation !

For more info and technical tips about these mods, i suggest this nice web site  http://www.va3cr.net/index/main.html

 

 

Here you can see the place where the Inrad mod must be installed, on the audio unit...

 

 

 

 

The mod installed, the little cable (who sert to connect the board to the if-unit) and the standoffs are of course supplied in the kit.

 

 

 

 

            I've made also the NB mod, developped at first by W8JI  http://www.w8ji.com/ft1000mk_v.htm

            it sert to deactivate completely the NB when is turned OFF, more infos on the link above.

 

 

            the original smd resistor to remove..

           

 

            a 220 ohms resistor ready to be solded

           

 

the resistor solded between Q2009/C2027 source and capacitor connection point and the junction of Q2016's collector and R2048

in this board the component are unnamed, so it's very important to have a photo or a schematic when you make the mod.
