Thanks for the introduction. I have a unmodified Sierra radio with 10m, 12m, 15m and 17m modules. I am also learning CW so that I can use it. It's been a slow, but steady process.
I am looking for band modules for any of the other bands, so if anyone has any for sale I would be interested.
I am also considering making some band modules from copper clad board, either making own single sided version pcb or prototyping semi-ugly style due to budget restraints!
I'm really looking forward to getting my first CW contacts with this great little radio.
A few things I have noted with my radio, perhaps others can confirm that these issues are normal.
1. AGC adjustment a little strange, also odd effect of RF gain increasing when control is at minimum during alignment tests. On-air AGC behaviour is ok though.
2. ABX control cuts everything out by about 1/2 way position.
Hello to everyone on the group.
