Improve FM Transmit – Correct User Memory Write – Spread out Speech Processor Range – Initializing QSK Delay Value Through Power Reset – Corrected AGC Remembered Per Mode Through Power Reset
This modification creates a “receive only” antenna port for use with an external receiver. It can also be configured to insert one of the available RF noise cancelling devices between the antenna and the receiver input of the Model 599 Eagle radio. – Two optional installations are presented.
1) INTERFACE WITH RCA PHONO CONNECTORS ADDED TO REAR PANEL
The first involves mounting two new RCA phono jacks on the Eagle rear panel for connection to the receiver or noise canceler.
2) NO CONNECTOR INTERFACE
The second is a “no hole” approach which brings the two RF cables out the side of the radio through the ventilation holes on either the left or right side, near the rear of the radio
