Belcom LS-202E reviews

additional info

epkoncept

The mod for the wider rx/tx rane requires two cuts on the pwb.. If there is interest, I can post a picture.
One of my radios works on FM and USB, but LSB is not working. Does anyone have any experience with this LSB not working issue.

Learned a little. +/-600kHz shift is not easy to add to the 202. 2 crystals,coils,... etc need to be added. Additionally switches for the repeater shift and 1750 tone are not present. ( 1750 tone generator is also not mounted.) May not be an issue as I dont plan use it for repeater use.
Final( Q301) is a 2SC1947. It is a royal PITA to replace. Heat sink bracket( brass) is soldered to the transistor can, and the can is also soldered to the pwb. Repairable, but need to have a thin chisel tip 40~ 50W iron to do the job. If possible get a 202A
Frequency range is 144~154.00 MHz on the "mod' japanese market LS-202
