Glen down in Christchurch has been working hard on the S-9. He has half a dozen little tricks and mods for the S-9 from a simple switch to enable front panel changing from frequency mode to channel mode, changing the crystal to give 24.6mhz to almost 30mhz to various stability mods which really clean up the squawky SSB audio and a scanning mic. Put a kenwood mic on it and you have near kenwood audio. I did the VCO stability mod for a big change in the SSB audio pattern that was welcomed by all. Both on RX and TX.
Currently working on a high powered rear end for it using the mosfets…..He may have his 150W S-9 out before Sam Lewis!
One thing for sure…Glen’s will sure sound better on SSB.
