I olso have the Piexx FTR tone moduel. I like it. I currently own 2 of these rigs the first one I bought used from a ham dealer it came with the 2M module, I've bought the SS tone encoder board as basic it is, it performs flawlessly.
Now I'm on the hunt for the Mhz module. Received my 6m module and the PEIXX tone unit, this made a great difference to the flexibility of the rig.
Odd thing was noise increased on FM when Channel button was pressed. Cure was fitting two 0. Also added two 0. To be safe also did same modification to regulator on control board. Very useful contest rig, could do with improvements, would like to know the mod for the if stage if anyone has details. I've replaced the fet in mine. You guys are right. So are most of our xyl's and we've adapted to those quirks also. I own 3 FTr's. One has the 10 M module and 1 has the 6M module.
I bought the Piex digital tone boards and they are a custom fit replacement and work great. I'm the Net Manager for my radio club's 2M net and I'm on either as net control or check in every day. Like I said, I have 3 of these and I'm using the same on the air now since I'm still waiting for that one to fail. Sure it has the rolling parasitic oscillation that pops up after about a minute or two and it happens once and that all per night. I've run this rig for up to 3hrs a night.
I also own an icom H and others but I'm waiting for my old FT to give up the ghost and then I'll chuck it in the landfill.. Now what can I say Later guys. Revisting the FTR I must be a glutton for punishment.
I am the fellow who penned the scathing earlier review. This review is for a second FTR. In the interim I picked up two additional FTR radios; both sets were being sold as not working or parts units.
The first came fully loaded with both of the UHF modules, a 2-meter module as well as the satellite board. The biggest "problem" was a missing DC power jumper plug on the rear apron. The second radio was a parts set. It arrived with a dead display FIP panel, and a dead processor chip on the controller board.
It is truly a parts mule radio. My goal was to end up with two working FTRs, and to eventually have the third set back in operation at a future date. My concerns were justified.
But, after spending considerable time troubleshooting I now have two fully operational FTRs that are working to my satisfaction. I am now a happier campier. The FTR, with its added bells and whistles, may be the better bargain. Yet, for someone with the technical skills to handle those issues, a used FTR can be coaxed into giving a few years of service. There are a few easy mods on the web to improve the SSB RX audio distortion problem, and I am also the ham who wrote up the IF stage gain modification for the 6 and 2 meter modules that appeared in HR Magazine many years ago.
Rolling spurs on the receivers. The voltage regulators were breaking into parasitic HF oscillation. Replacing the bypass capacitors and adding a few 0. While the problem in my units was the on the controller, the 8 volt regulator can cause the same problems. Intermittent receive, transmit and erratic satellite duplex operation. Bad relays. Spraying with a good cleaner will bring some back. Otherwise they need to be replaced. A bad contact on one of the miniature relays on the TX board is the cause of loss of duplex when using the Satellite modes.
These are the ones still being carried by RF Parts. Bad displays. They wear out, yet many have survived. No replacements are available; the only source is from a donor radio.
But, if yours has the problem, before replacing the display with a used make sure the inverter is operating properly! My parts mule was running over 7 volts on the display filaments, and the —22 volt supply was over 67 volts! The panel burnt out prematurely.
Conversely, bad electrolytic caps in the inverter circuit can cause the voltages to drop that will also cause a weak or dead FIP display. Erratic main tuning. Most folks assume it is the CMOS logic chips. Problem is most likely leaky pF ceramic disk capacitors in the shaft encoder RC debouncing circuits. Front panel cosmetics.
The plastic finish wears, especially on the outside corners. Apparently the gray tone is a finish coating that can wear off. The plastic is easily cracked, especially at the corners where the covers tend to bind and stress the front panel when being removed or replaced.
The decorative handle end plastic pieces are also almost always cracked or missing. Bad electrolytic caps. An ESR meter really helps here. My biggest beef is the watt RF power output; 25 watts would have been nicer. Here's my current lineup of working FTRs. My original unit has the 6. It worked fine for the first several years, then the intermittents started. Sticking relays, receiver or transmitter will not work unless the set is left on for at least 30 minutes, and the VFO tuning is erratic I need to scope out digital shaft encoder signals on the front panel logic board.
A real PITA to get into. There is a rolling spur that rolls through the receiver for about 3 minutes after turn on. By the time I try to trace the source of the problem, it clears up on its own.
Recovered SSB audio quality is about the worst I have ever experienced. AGC action is extremely poor. The product detector design is flawed--the IF signal overdrives the PD which is the main cause of the poor audio quality. Audio is mushy and not crisp. There are mods on the net that show how to improve this problem, but the final result is a very noticable drop in recovered audio level. The gain distribution feels wrong.
AGC action does not take place until a signal is fairly strong, leaving the operator to ride the gain controls to hear weaker signals. A bit more IF gain might have helped. One of the cascaded monolithic IF filters failed in the six meter module, but a replacement was available from the factory.
The radio's mechanical construction is cheap and flimsy. This radio did not age gracefully. When it works, it is a means to an end.
At least boatanchors are repairable, and reliable. The first one I bought from new many years ago.
