Atlas 210x--Is it a carrier balance thing?

Atlas 210x--Is it a carrier balance thing?

Post by Moody19 » Wed, 24 Mar 2004 00:21:30

Just bought a Atlas 210x-Hooked to triband..very slow SWR.  But when I key the
mike, I get a steady carrier in REC mode.  Is it a carrier balance thing that
needs adjusting?  Appreciate any help you guys can give me.

I'm not sure I understand from your description of the problem, whether you
hear the steady carrier in REC after transmit or during transmit.
But, on my Atlas 180, after years of non-use, I had a feedback squeal in
receive when the audio gain was turned up toward maximum audio.    If I
turned the audio gain to 3/4 full gain or less, the feedback stopped.  Then
after about a week of operating like this, the problem went away.  I think I
was lucky and an electrolytic capacitor in the audio curcuit that was
marginal re-formed its dielectric layer and is now functioning properly.  If
your 210X has been idle for a long time, maybe it's somethin like this and
not a transmit problem.
