Kenwood, TK360(N). UHF.
RX/TX lock voltages were off, RX send. suffered.
TX power under 1Watt. Freq. alignment req'd.
Dev. and balance also needed alignment.
Both Kenwood and Icon are NOT my first or second choice for radios. This is only a 4-channel model. Board silkscreens for more features though.

The General insurance is a RIP OFF!
$100.50/ Mo. for min. coverage, and good driving.
We are not paying to be ripped off for being good drivers. The General is now CANCELLED!
THEY CAN GO TO HELL!

Q13 from the CM300 control head.
Soldering these leads is really difficult!
I need to test which Junction pair shorted, and I can't do that without removing the device to test each lead.

At 464.500, no wonder these radios were difficult to hear.
The carrier was off by almost 5 kHz!
On narrow band channels, this much error can make communication almost impossible.
They are being adjusted properly, and sold on EBay.
Two models, both Motorola. M1225 and the CM300.
Previous duty: Taxi MDT data links.

Why is it so difficult to desolder a chip resistor from a board without destroying the trace?
Rebuilding this radio, I had to fix this issue, as I had on several others. Poor workmanship, no attention to detail, and poor skillsets create crap work.

Today is my father's birthday, and I want to wish him a very wonderful HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAD!
You left us too soon, and you missed out on a lot of wonderful experiences we shared.
I wanted to show you so much, but was not able to. Our family grew stronger and closer. We reunited, remarried, and are once again, moving forward, past the pains of recent times. You were always special, and with mom beside you throughout my life, it was a grand experience.
I hope you are doing well, have mom there with you. You are in our thoughts and always and forever in our hearts.
We miss you so much dad!
I need to be selfish, and extend my deepest love to you, forever.
You passed on April 21, 2013.
A day that will be a sad one for us all.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
MAY 6, 1930
APRIL 21, 2013

All our love, to you..

Ernest, Sherri, Kyler
Your family shall always be together.

I saved a Prickly Pear cactus from living a lonely life on an awning.
Seeds must have been blown on top, and it took root.
Transplanting in a couple of days after it stabilizes.
Good barrier from people wanting to walk through our yard!

Success!
Q13 B/C Junction caused the radio to go into transmit upon B+ application. Replace Q13, and normal function be restored.

Time to attack the Xindi base, and destroy the bio-weapon!
