Hello janetsue, If this radio has the blue or green screen LCD face then this is a default that is built into the radio. It depends on how the radio was "converted" when it was bought new.
It will not key up on 10 or 12 because of the default. A little more info supplied would be real helpful,,,, Let me know, Mechanic

Where do you add freq expansion mod in 2995dx? pimas


You put it on the CPU board, its called a (E-CHIP) if yours did not come with one, may be hard to find...You have to have a good steady soldering hand to do it. Have not done any of these, but did a few 2900 DX. ... hope this was helpful...

In most cases I have been able to replace a capacitor associated with the power supply, it fails when the voltage is pulled down during transmit. You're more than welcome to ship it in here.

President HR-2510 will not transmit or recieve


Hi Darrel,

Since you didn't say if you have ever used this radio successfully before, I have to assume it is "new to you" and that you have never seen it work or used one like it before. Start with a few basic settings below:

Turn Squelch to minimum.
Set RF Gain (if present) to maximum
Set Mode to AM or FM
Set volume to 1/3 up
Connect to 50 ohm dummy load.

Turn power on. Hopefully you hear static. If not, try SSB or FM. Still nothing? Try connecting to an external speaker.

Chnage back to AM or FM mode. Key mic check & for transmit indicator. If none, change mic or manually short the PTT contacts in the mic or at the radio to see if it can be made to xmit.

If no xmit - insert SWR meter between xmitter and dummy load. Try to xmit on AM or FM again while watching SWR forward power, if none indicated, xmitter is probably defective.

Replacing parts in a xmitter is not recommended. You'll need an FCC license and a fair amount of expensive test equipment to test repairs, set power levels and deviation and perform an alignment to be sure you aren't causing interference on other frequencies and bands.

You'd be better off bringing it to a radio repair shop for repairs and an alignment.

Sideband carrier??


im not sure carriers are measured in pounds, but SSB is a supressed carrier mode, in SSB only one sideband is transmitted and the carrier is inserted at the other end in the receiver. In AM mode the carried and both sidebands are transmitted. with regular am there is a carried and when modulation (your voice) is added a signal appears both above and below the carrier frequency at a distance relative to the frequency of your voice. so if you have a carrier at 1000 khz and modulated it with a tone of 100 hertz the signal will contain frequencies of 900,1000, and 1100 hertz, then its changed to SSB by supressing the carrier (1000) and one sideband (1100) if you are on lower sideband and (900) if you one upper sideband, and transmits the remaining frequency.
