Re: 6m VHF Ensemble - R12
- Hi Michael,
That's fairly typical, nothing to worry about. Its due to the horrible characteristics of the low voltage zener diode used. They are really critical on the current passing through them.
I swapped the zener on mine for a 3.6V BZY series one and got the voltage up to around 3.3V, but made no measurable difference in performance.
