in an effort to increase the gain of the receiver so that the volume control could be operated at a lower level, it was desired to have more if gain and audio gain. The collector load resistor of Q5 was changed from IK ohm to 3.3K ohm, which SBE does in the SB-34, Q7? the receiver if amplifier transistor, was replaced with a 2N1224 which provided more gain at the same volume setting than the 2N2672 used originally. Now with the greater amplification in if and audio stages the volume control does not have to be advanced as far for a specified audio output. By operating the volume control at a lower setting the amplification of the hf mixer, Q11 is held to as low a value as possible which helps to prevent overload of the vfo mixer and if amplifier.
The proof of the pudding is in the testing so the receiver was subjected to the following tests in both the modified and unmodified condition: in the original configuration it took a cw signal level of ,7 microvolt to produce an audio output at the speaker terminals 10 db above noise. After modification a ,35 microvolt signal produced an output 10 db above noise..This test was performed on 1 5 meters and the rf stage was repeaked for each configuration.
To test overload characteristics, a cw signal of 5 microvolts was fed into the receiver at 21,3 mhz, another generator was set at 21.35 mhz and the output increased until the audio output from the 5 microvolt signal decreased by 6 db. In the unmodified state a signal level of 9.5 millivolts at 21.35 mhz was required to reduce the desired 21,3 mhz signal output by 6 db. After modifica-
