PROGRAMING THE ALINCO DJ-196
Press the A V/MMW key so M does not show in the radios display. This is the VFO mode. Key in the desired receive frequency. Press the FUNCSET key, and push the 2 SHIFT key until the desired offset or no offset for simplex is displayed. Push any key other than the 2 SHIFT or the FUNCSET key to return to the VFO mode. To enable the PL tone function, push the FUNCSET key and then the 4 TSQ key. Continue pushing the 4 TSQ key until the desired tone function is shown (normally just a T). When the desired function is shown, rotate the knob for the correct frequency. Push any key other than the 4 TSQ or the FUNCSET key to return to the VFO mode. To save the desired information to a memory channel, press the A V/MMW key and the memory channels appear. Rotate the knob until you find a channel that displays a flashing M. To place the information in that channel, press the A V/MMW key again. Press the FUNCSET key and then the A V/MMW key while the F appears in the display (within about 3 seconds). This places the information in the selected memory channel. Pushing the A V/MMW key displays the memory function and you can rotate the knob to show the previously set memory channels. If you want to delete a memory channel so you can place different information in that channel, push the A V/MMW key to enter the memory mode. Rotate the dial to select the memory channel you wish to delete. (M is displayed for channels that are being used, and the M flashes for channels that are unused). Press the FUNCSET key, and while the F is displayed, press the A V/MMW key. The M will begin flashing to indicate the channel is now unused.

(DJ-120) Extended frequency for Alinco DJ-120
Hi all, i have recently heard of a mod for the alinco dj-120. The mod opens up transmit from 130 mhz to 174 MHz. To do this, please folow these simple procedures: 1. Open the front and top case of the ht. 2. Look for 2 jumpers, one vertical, on horizontal next to the microprocessor and cut both of them. 3. Reset the microprocessor by pressing the reset button on front panel. Be careful! that will reset all memories stored in the radio

transmission, it will release the squelch and the receive the rest of that transmission. Transmit Mode: When used to transmit, the radio will automatically transmit the three digit DSQ group code right after you press the [PTT] button, so remember to pause a moment before talking if using the radio in DSQ mode. To set DSQ Squelch, push [f] [GP DSQ] until DSQ is displayed. Be sure that ONLY DSQ is displayed, not G DSQ or GP DSQ. Normally, if you start with no DSQ display, hitting [f] [GP DSQ] once will cause DSQ only to be displayed. Summary of DTMF Squelch function: Receive: Radio remains squelched unless it receives the tones 1,2,3 Transmit: Radio transmits the tones 1,2,3 whenever [PTT] is pressed. (you must hold down the PTT button throughout your transmission. If you let go of the PTT button, you must re-transmit the three digit code if you want the receiver to hear you! This is not a problem when using one DJ160 with another, but can be if you are using the DJ160 with a different radio where manual entry of the DTMF tones is required) NOTE: If using another radio to manually send DTMF squelch codes, the three digits must be punched in within a space of 1.5 seconds total. (b) DTMF page function: This mode is set using the [f] [GP DSQ] buttons. Hold down the [f] button and press the [GP DSQ] button until G DSQ or GP DSQ is displayed. G DSQ stands for group page mode, and GP DSQ stands for personal page mode. Normally if no DSQ function is displayed, you hold down the [f] key and press the [GP DSQ] key once to display DSQ, twice to display G DSQ, three times to display GP DSQ, and a fourth time to clear the DSQ function from the display. Receive Mode: In this mode, the radio is silent until it receives the proper page tone sequence. At that point, it will beep in a fashion that is characteristic of either receipt of a group page or of a personal page. The tone for a group page consists of several dual beeps, with all beeps being of the SAME tone. eg: beep beep beep beep beep beep etc. The tone for a personal page consists of several dual beeps, but the two beeps within each dual beep are of different frequencies. eg: beep boop beep boop beep boop etc. NOTE: The radio behaves EXACTLY the SAME when in either G DSQ or GP DSQ modes when it is RECEIVING. The two modes (G DSQ and GP DSQ) differ ONLY in terms of what tones get transmitted when you push the [PTT] button!! I recommend you use only the G DSQ mode, for it is simpler to understand. But I will attempt to shed some light on the GP DSQ mode too. Group Paging: Receive: (Radio may be set to either G DSQ or GP DSQ) Radio must receive group code (1,2,3) followed by a star (*) at a minimum in order to produce the pager tone. If the radio receives ONLY the three digit group code followed by a star (1,2,3,*) it will give the group page beep, the "G" in the G DSQ of the display will flash, but "Err" will be shown in the main display because the personal code was not properly sent. If the radio receives a group code followed by a star followed by a personal code OR a group code followed by a star followed by a personal code followed by two stars (1,2,3,*,4)

Group paging: (receive mode) This digit is re-written any time a proper group page is received to reflect the number of the other party who sent you the page. example: you have 123.4.5 in your DSQ setting and you now receive a group page consisting of 123*8** (or one simply consisting of 123*8). Your pager will make the group page type beep, "G" will flash in the display, AND, if you go to DSQ set mode, you will see that the last digit of the code displayed is now NOT a 5, but is instead an 8, informing you that "person number 8" was the originator of that group page. Thus, if your page code WAS set to 123.4.5 and you receive the group page 123*8**, when you now press [f] [DSQ set] you will no longer see 123.4.5 but instead see 123.4.8. (transmit mode) This digit is NOT USED in group page transmit mode. Personal paging: (receive mode) This digit is re-written any time you receive a valid personal page, and will display the personal code of the person who sent that page. example: you have 123.4.5 as your DSQ code, and you receive the following sequence: 1234*7 Your pager will now make the personal page type beep, "GP" will flash on the display, and if you press [f] [DSQ set] you will no longer see 123.4.5 displayed, but instead will see 123.4.7. The last digit reflects the fact you received a personal page from a person whose own personal code is 7. (transmit mode) This is the digit that is sent out FOURTH when you push the [PTT] button. It specifies which person in the group will receive the personal page. You must be careful to set this digit correctly for the person you in the group who you wish to page, keeping in mind that this digit gets re-written every time you receive a page of any kind! If you have 123.4.5 set as your DSQ code, pressing [PTT] in GP DSQ mode will cause 1,2,3,5,*,4 to be transmitted. Note very carefully that this, the fifth digit in your DSQ setting display, is sent out FOURTH when you are in GP DSQ mode and press the [PTT] button! DTMF Wild Card function: If you forget a squelch or paging code, you can pick up and decode codes sent by others. Use [f] [DSQ set] to set DSQ first to 000.0.0 and then set it to ###.0.0. (upside down As will be displayed instead of #s). Now set your radio to G DSQ mode. If you receive ANY valid page, the radio will beep. Press [f] [DSQ set] and the ###.0.0 display will be replaced by the page code you just received. DTMF Decode function: At any time, any codes received will be decoded and kept in the M3 dialing number. Thus, any time you hear a bunch of DTMF codes on the air, you can press the [Dial Ch] button, then rotate the top selector know so that M3 is displayed, then use the up and down arrow buttons (* and #) to scroll the display right (up arrow) or left (down arrow). Up to 16 digits will be retained. You can also set the radio to DSQ mode while lying in wait to receive DTMF tones. That way, the radio will break squelch when it has received three or more DTMF tones, alerting you to the fact it has captured a code. Note: according to the manual, you must have phone numbers stored in one or both dial memories (M1 and M2) for the decode to work. But in my experience that does not seem to be required by my unit.

corner.. There are two resistors with the numbers 000 (zero zero zero) on it. Actually they are no resistors, just a wire, but in smd it looks like a resistor. so get them off the board and do a reset !!!! The reset is very important because otherwise you will not get the new freq-range. You got it???? Hopefuly, if not, leave a msg in bbs DB0AHA. Greetings from DL1BEQ frank Rmks: This modifycation let you loose your warrantee, and also may cause problems with your national communicantions authority.

(DJ-G5) Alinco DJ-G5T extended TX
To extend the TX (RX is already extended) do the following: 1. Remove the 4 screws that hold the back cover of the unit on. 2. CAREFULLY pry the case apart (It's helps to remove the VFO/Mem/etc knob first) 3. On the FRONT portion (DTMF Pad) of the case, in the upper right-hand corner you will see a BLUE wire. Cut that carefully. 4. Reassemble the unit. 5. While holding the FUNC key, press POWER to reset the unit. 6. Viola! You know have extended TX! Hope this helps all DJ-5GT users. Sincerely, Kevin Bednar KB2YPU

(DJ-G5) Extended RX/TX for DJ-G5E
Author: Sean (G0NVJ) - gatsby@dircon.co.uk.MODIFICATION.NET
Extending the recieve range.
To extend the recieve range to AM/FM 108-173.995mhz, 400-511.995mhz and 800-999.990mhz there is a simple keypad sequence as follows.
Press and hold the function button on the side and press the FL button twice This puts the frequency lock on.Then whilst pressing the function button press #212, The display should then read "OPEN". Then remove the frequency lock by pressing function and FL together.
Extending The Transmit range.
The radio can be made able to tramsmit between 130-174mhz and 400-512mhz (if it cant already after the above mod) by removing the back and cutting the blue loop of wire near the speaker socket and resetting the radio. I have since found out that this mod does not appear to work for the DJ-G5T

(DJ-X1D) Increase frequency range ALINCO DJ-X1D
Here's a way to increase the freq.range of the Alinco DJ-X1D: 1. Press (and hold) the F-key, now press the FL-key - the keypad is locked 2. Enter the folowing code: 212617 - "open" appears in the display 3. Now press the F-key and the FL-key again Now the freq.range will be +/- 100kHz ~ 1.3gHz !!!

(DJF-1) Extended TX and RX for DJF-1T
pen the radio and place it face down with the BNC jack up, and locate two jumper wires on the lower right hand corners of the set. The red jumper is for extended receive, and the blue(I think it is blue?) jumper is for extended transmit. Just cut/unsolder the red jumper for extended receive, blue for extended transmit, or both jumpers if you want both. Push the F button while turning the set on to reset radio to factory defaults. The extended receive (AM aircraft) can be activated by pressing the B button on the keypad. (If you cut both jumpers) A letter A will show up on the LCD indicating that radio is in the AM mode. To go back to FM, just press B again. I think B just activates a second VFO in the radio, since radio retains the AM frequency when toggle in and out of te AM mode. My serial number is 8221, so this mod should work for radio with serial numbers close to mine. The radio will not transmit in AM mode, but it will transmit up to the ~160MHz range. I can say that it works up to the weather band frequencies. I've checked it by transmitting on 162MHz to a FT-415 at the lowest power setting inside an enclosed screen room. A few words about the radio in general. I had the radio for about two days and I already had several IFR flights with it on board an airplane. The radio performed flawlessly. The fit and finish of
the radio is excellent. The entire radio case is cast luminum, except the battery case, which is plastic. The only gripe I have about the radio is the battery latch. It seems to do the job, but looks a little flimsy. If I really sqeeze the radio HARD, I can feel a tiny bit of movement between the battery case and radio. But I complaint about the same thing about the glove compartment in my Honda. I prefer the what we pilots called " human engineerd" aspect of the radio. Most of what I use in the airplane are rarely more than two buttons away. God only gave me two hands a while back, and I need one to fly the airplane, and the other to toggle the radio controls.

16. Reset the cpu as shown in your owners manual. This is because that the cpu is located on the board you were working on and may have some bad data after working on the rig. You may have to reset the cpu when you test the rig in order to show the full lcd display. Any questions can be sent to me at my home bbs and i will try to answer them to the best of my ability.

(DR-110) 9600bd ALINCO 110,112,1200
Hello FELLOW Packeteers! I just got off the phone with Matt from Alinco! I have been asked if the 9600 baud Mod that I posted would also work fr the 110. YES IT WILL! The 110, 112 and 1200 radios are identical except for the power output of the 1200 (25-watts high power compared to the 45-watts of the 110 and 112!) and the 112 has a LCD display to replace the piece of junk one on the 110! Also, if you want to have more power in the 1200, you can buy the 100/112 PA Board (45-watts) for $65.00 from Alinco. It also requires buying 4 high power switching diodes for $20.00 from Alinco. $85.00 for 20-watts?.Doesn't sound like a good investment to me. Don't forget the time involved with doing this mod. I discourage the use of HIGH POWER and have posted bulletins on this subject! Never the less, I feel obligated to pass this info on to you, I am not the U.S. Government, I will NOT keep things from you! To follow is the 9600 baud Mod I received from Alinco. Alinco warns that the Warranty is void if this Mod is performed! KA1BOY has been great enough to try this Mod and says it works great for 1200 baud as well as 9600 baud! From all of us to you, THANK YOU BARRY! One point to remember, you will not be able to use the radio for voice. This mod uses the Mic Connector. TRANSMITTER 1. 2. 3. 4. Remove R-31 Remove C-40 (save this part, it is to be reused!) Connect one leg of C-40 to PIN 7 of the VCO Board Connect a jumper from the free leg of C-40 to the HOT end of C-35 The MIC input is now connected DIRECTLY to the VCO!

This capacitor connects D1 (back to back diodes) to the first IF line. D1 is supposed to be a "limiter". Unknown why Alinco chose to put in such a limiter, as the integrated IF chip IC-1, an MC3357, has a built-in limiter. Also, the Kenwood TM-231 which uses nearly the same layout and circuit, doesn't have such a ciruit. While the intermod hasn't gone away entirely (I'm not done with it yet!), it has diminished enough to make the rig usable on packet AND voice now. 73 de Bill, K0ZL@W0LJF.#NECO.CO.NOAM

(DR-135) Alinco DR-135T MARS/CAP Mod
DR135T all versions (T/TG/TP/TPG) Waring: You must have a proper license to operate on the MARS/CAP frequencies. Alinco declines responsibilities for the use of modified equipment out of ham bands. The warranty is void when the modification is done. The declared specs are not applicable out of the ham bands. DR-135T operates in the narrow FM mode TX/RX but the unit is not officially new CAP requirements compliant. Modification: Turn the radio off. Disconnect the power source. Open the bottom cover by removing the 4 screws located on each corner of the bottom cover surfce. Locate a BLUE looped jumper wire that comes out of a slot on the back of the front control unit (it is attached to the back of the front panel on a pad labeled JP3). Remove the jumper and trim the remaining wire properly to prevent a short circuit. Reassemble the bottom cover. Connect the power source and turn on the unit with the FUNC key pressed to reset the microprocessor. Settings will become the factory default. The unit will transmit and receive between approximately 140 and 170 MHz where the VCO will lock. If the display is flashing, you have lost VCO lock and operation is not possible. Alinco does not guarantee any operations outside of the amateur bands. [from an Alinco mod sheet, with some clarifications added!] [Good luck, but don't blame me if you foul-up your new radio! :-) ]

Drittel, oberhalb der 5 Bauteile Q 13-C81. 3. Das Poti fr den HUB am G3RUH sollte so eingestellt werden, da sich ein TX-Signal von ca. 0,4 VSS einstellt. 4. Die Jumper fr die TX-Kurve sollten auf 10 und 11 stehen. So, das wars von mir. Ansonsten luft alles Prima. vy 73, de Martin @ DB0OQ

(DR-590) Expanded frq. for DR-590T
>I just picked up a brand new Alinco DR-590T and have had some problems that >I would like to share with you all out there in ham-net land. Maybe someone >out there can help me with a couple of these problems. I guess not too many people have these rigs yet otherwise I would not have to respond to your request. I hope there are others besides yourself that are interested in this information. In any event this is what worked for me (sans jinglish). I am not however responsible for what you do to your rig. etc. >1, I got this unit because of all the cool features it is supposed to have, >including cross-band repeat. The instruction manual does not even mention >this feature. After calling Alinco I found that this was a feature functions >only after modification. They said (more than a week and a half ago) that the >would send me the modification instructions. I haven't heard anything from >them. If you ask them (nicely) there are (a few) dudes at Alinco that are willing to help and are smart enought to be helpfull (there is a differance ;-}). They can fax you the information or even send it to you next day air at no charge if you ask politely or are VERY persistant (as in my case). Now the big news. to modify the rig to xmit out of band (to call the cops etc ;-}), to operate as a cross band remote, etc. follow these easy steps. 1. Remove the control head from the unit (2 screws on each side of the forward part of the rig, near the control head). 2. Hold the control head in your hand face down and remove the two screws you see on the back of the control head. 3. Remove the cover from the back of the control head (it snaps off) 4. Locate a blue loop of wire. There is only one blue loop of wire. 5. Cut, unsolder, remove, destroy, nuke, the blue wire (your choice) [I neither advocate nor encourage the indiscriminate use of nukes] 6. Undo step 3 7. Undo step 2 8. Undo step 1 9. Connect the rig to antennas, power etc as outlined in the manual. 10. Hold down the function key and turn on the power This is what you will find. The rig now transmits everywhere. it now will display (not receive) 800Mhz band and 300Mhz band on the 440 side of the display in rotation (press the uhf switch to switch from band to band). It will now display (not recieve) the aircraft band (yes it does indicate AM) on the 2 meter side of the rig. There is no AM detector presently but I am working on it.
