I'm getting reports that the deviation on the 146 MHz transmitted signal from my DJ-V5 needs to be reduced. The service manual directs me to trim pot VR202, but the service manual doesn't list such a part...only VR302, accessible under the battery pack. Is this the correct trim pot (i.e. a misprint in the service manual)?

Re: alinco dj-v5 HT deviation adjust
To adjust the deviation of this radio, you don't have to take it apart. If you take the battery pack off, there is a sticker on the back of the radio saying Alinco. Pull that sticker off and underneath are the variable resistors. See the service manual for more details on how to make other adjustments.
First, make sure you note the present position of this pot so you can turn it back if you have to.
If you don't have any equipment to measure deviation, make a contact on the repeater and try turning the pot in small increments and ask the person to help you set the deviation so your voice sounds good through the repeater.
Once set, if the repeater has a touch tone test, go through and make sure all your tones are being properly decoded.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Go on ebay and finda br1225 replacement, with legs, my DJ580T has the one with one leg on top and one on the bottom with yellow plastic shrink-wrap around the edges of the battery. you have to take the radio to smithereens, ie take off bottom battery plate, take off all knobs - pull straight off, take off antenna, take out all 3 screws on body of radio, then carefully work back off and over the pots where you took off the knobs. there was no marking on my battery, but it is the button-looking thing with the yellow plastic around the edge. carefully de-solder old, put new in, then carefully reassemble radio. top edge has rubber seal, be careful it is in place, if twisted radio will not go back together. battery is about $5 shipped, on ebay.

I think your 2M section has a dead FET in the receiver front end. The FET transistors are bad about being destroyed by ESD, as they are not gate protected. This is a repair shop job, unless you are very good with repairing surface mount technology. The 635 is a good rig, well worth the repair costs. Consider using a factory repair shop, to get the job done right. There is an Alinco group on Yahoo Groups, join them and ask where to send your radio for repair. They will know who is reliable enough to trust your treasured radio to for repair.
