Link radios 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.

When performing FM conversions to PM equipment this modulation index chart may be helpful. It's also useful for calibration a deviation or service monitor.
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.
