I have a new Mark V Field. In the 9-2 menu settings for TX IF gain per band
all of my settings are 9's, 10's and 11's, increasing as you increase in
frequency. However looking at the settings that K6SE and others use from the
VA3CR website, they are using 6's and 7's. What is the significance of these
settings and should I lower mine?
Also has anyone successfully changed their Mark V Field to all band transmit
for MARS and 60 meter operation? In the Mark V simply going to menu 9-9 and
changing it to "GEN" is enough BUT not on the Mark V Field. I presume a wire
has to be cut internally or an SMT semiconductor removed. I'm fixing to pop
the cover to place the INRAD 1.9 kc filters in both IF's and would like to
take care of the general coverage mod while I'm at it.
Any comments would be very much appreciated.
