About that new radio you have all full of surface mount microprocessor technology! Study the block diagram page, get familiar and know what each
block does. Next carefully check the voltage readings at the test points to see if they are correct according to the diagram, be careful and go slow,
make sure you have a full set of schematics, and best if you have some technical experience.
Sound advice from our April meeting speaker Jacques Petrie owner of Groton
Electronics in Franklin,Ma. He is a highly respected, certified repair technician for both Icom and Kenwood service. Jacques went over his interesting background,
which included several years as the field engineer for Motorola radio products in North western Africa.
