HTX100 FREQUENCY CONVERSION

Remove bottom and top covers.
Remove the PLL board and tray that is held in by 2 screws on each side of the radio.
After you remove  the board you will see a 4 sided surface mount chip UC-1208 that has 64 pins.
Look to the right of the chip and locate the 4th and 5th pins from the top right of the chip(pins 28 and 29).
Notice they are soldered together and run to a trace to a surface mount resistor.
Carefully cut  the trace next to the 2 pins. Now locate 2 rows of pins to the top of the chip.
The bottom row last pin on the right has 5 volts DC on it.
Solder a 10K resistor to that pin and to the pins 28 and 29.
Now reassemble the radio and your done.
The radio will now tune 26 MHZ thru 30 MHZ.
