TS-50 TX Coverage mod


kenwood TS-50 TX Coverage mod


Hi folks,

I just got a spanking new Kenwood TS-50S.

Searching around the local LLBBS's I found a very simple mod for full transmit from 1.7 - 30 mhz....

Remove the bottom cover of the TS-50

Locate the PLL board -- it is the pc board on top of the main board, it has a shield on it's right side.

Locate the only non-surface mounted component on the PLL board -- look near the rear left-hand side of the pll board (front of radio facing you) and remove the very obvious diode. You can't miss, ther's only one.

Replace cover.

Perform microprocessor reset as described in your manual.

Important note to 0-30 MHz TRX mods

If you want to make your TS50 tranceiving 0-30 and find more then 1 diode in your radio, PLZ watch out! Dnt remove diode nr1! Remove nr5.

If you remove diode nr1 your radio is history!

New version. General TX for TS-50

The new version of the TS 50 has three non surface mount diodes to be cut for general TX.

TX 0-30 MHz for the new TS-50 (May 2001)

ON the new version are 4 diode on de board.

Cut remove all, D1 D3 D4 D5

Then RESET the Kenwood TS-50
