Subject: Re: IC-765 mods

Hello agn, Serge!

Let's se how it works this way!
Here is my text from 1989:
The IC 765 is a fine radio. Unfortunately we miss the old fine
IF-shift of course is also nice; but PBT better.
How abt getting both!?
Here comes a little easy mod that will give u IF-shift when the
IF-shift-button is IN and PBT when it is OUT!
You have to get to the PC-board at the underside of the radio.

Locate the brown wire going to base of Q38, cut that lead and insert a diode
in series.

Locate the multi-connector J31, cut the orange lead and connect a diode from
the coming lead to the same point as the one above (both diode-cathodes
Best of luck/73

I also enclose two small JPG.illustrations, I hope you can read them!?
This modification is very worthwhile. The diodes can be any low-level
>What rig do you have now? Why did you part with 765?
I had the 781 after the 765, liked it very much; but now have the IC 756 as
my base-station. It's OK and SMALL!!

Same here - i think the 765 is a VERY good radio - I didn't like the 775

>Still I have found in 765 some weak points; one of them is lack of PBT;

This u now can fix!!

The other weak point is VCO

You are rite - this trimmers are no good - we have the same problems here in
CLEAN Sweden -also on the IC 735, e.g.!!

I am born OZ - 1931, but moved to SM in 1967.TNX fer pix.
