View Full Version : HiFi Boat Anchors

01-11-2012, 09:54 PM
So I think im going to start playin around with some old boat anchors. A friend of mine just "aquired" 4 FT101's, and 1 of em is mine. I also have my eye on a big ol' johnson viking ranger. So i guess im gonna keep the Fl2100B if im getting a 101. Anyone have any good documentation on either radio?

The Ranger has small mod iron and no room to upgrade i have one it just collects dust they are good if you want to just
throw a d104 on and do some basic mods but i wouldnt invest to much time in it for hifi also ft101b it can do pretty well with a few cap resistor changes on one board then some filter mods but it is screen modulated it wont sound like an old plate mod rig

Just picked up a 101B. Waiting for it to arrive.. Anyone have an AM filter they want to sell?

Hey noise worst case scenario if you dont find one you can temp a resistor across it but it will be wide as a barn door
Also dont forget to do the bandswitch changes some people put the filters and never bother with that part and sorta half works

Yeah - i know about the switch mod.. I have it on home puter. Drop the AM in the cw pos and do i small mod behind the mode selector.
