    • Well, Google's 'advertising optimization' has now become so distracting as to trick people into visiting other sites. So I have removed advertising until I can find a better solution. One option may be sponsorship, anyone interested?



Operating manual for National NCX-5 transceiver in pdf format.
Compliments of Mike Sullivan, KC2KJ.

Customer Service Bulletin CSB 66-1.  Compliments of Gregory Mijal, WA7LYO.


The following bulletin was produced by National and intended for the National NCX 5 transceiver.

The customer Service bulletin is CSB 66 - 1

An additional modification to the NCX 5 transceiver:
Low AM receive audio level/ SSB audio level normal
Change L22 inductor at diode D11 (am detector) from the single layer unit supplied to a larger inductance.  A small 3 section choke works well.  This will raise the received am audio and prevent the operator from having to reset the volume control when changing receive modes.    

Compliments of WA7LYO
