How to make full power on Avanti Grande


















To unlock the full power in FM the Avanti Grande has a strap on Q55... and so that the radio has about 60w out ... nice but not to good for me and for modulation :-) I do prefer to have adjusted power from 1(4) to ...20w, and have the AM modulation ok ... so that you can push an KL203 amplifier and you have 100W in FM and up to 200W in SSB.

So, if you cut/remove/unsolder the strap then you have the option to adjust the power from the frontal potentiometer (with the limits set from inside ...) that is the "secret" power :-)


















The Schematic Diagram for Avanti Grande can be found here.

for other tricks you can see this one...

Notes
