I found the problem where the 500hz filter made the receiver dead when
pressed. Thanks to all who responded with suggestions. I reseated and
double-checked the 500 hz filter, and that seems to have been the problem, it's
working great now.
I just installed several mods, and I'm very pleased with all of them. The
following mods made a great difference in the radio!
*Inrad roofing filter mod.
*Inrad sub-receiver 500hz filter added.
*International Radio tuning mod for main and sub (spreads out the revolution to
*W8JI key click and noise blanker mods
I only had the tuning mod on my original FT-1000D in the '90s, so the
difference for me is astounding with the new mods available for the radio now.
