Karl's Link Radio page

This page is all about modifying radio equipment for a better way to pass signals for long-distance links and other uses, starting with the COR/Audio board. If any of the drawings are not clear a better copy is available for a modest cost of handling.

My COR board project:

COR/Audio board Ver. 5.3

Motorola Mitrek area - Lot's of information

Most of these documents are in PDF for easy viewing with any O/S. Also, some of them are large in size:

Mitrek conversion to Repeater or link in PDF

Details on the antenna connections in PDF

Frequency options in PDF

Details on the casting in PDF

Operation manual in PDF

Motorola Micor area - Lot's of information (including Spectra-Tac)

LDG eletronics voter Documentation by Karl Shoemaker

A note about the documents; recently they are starting to be converted to PDF for a couple reasons; this solves the issue with html pages (with images) being displayed on various browsers (with other variables) and generally is smaller in file size. This is especially true for a MS-Word document (with images) compared to the size of the same document in PDF. PDFs are easy to download to your PC for later viewing.

Note: Many of these projects are in the R-n-D stage, therefore, are subject to change and improvement without notice. They are intended to get the experienced builder in the right direction and not necessarily for the beginner. Tip: Some are PDF's therefore, to save time you can right click on the link and "save as" to your PC for local (and faster) viewing.
