Alinco dj-v5 HT deviation adjust

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)?

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.

Good luck!

It's not programmed right. You can probably find more intelligible programming instructions on Google. Their manuals are not great.

Hi guys, my alinco dj596 cannot receive but can transmite,how i solve this problem?


Which one is it? ALINCO or MOTOROLA?

DJ 596 indicates ALINCO, and they are two totally different radio makes. Alinco is a great Japanese brand, any way to get to your query....

I'm only guessing due to lack of info from you, that you've tried the volume controls on your radio?

If so, has this problem only recently occurred or has it been present since you got the set?

This is info we need to be able to assist you.
