Dude,

It is a very touchy radio..... best have a shop do the mod! Especially those new chips, concerned. The guys told you right.

Read and heed.

Good to see that was all it needed. How is the tracking of the frequencies now and did you do any other adjustments, keep us informed. Post the resistor position for others interested in the mod.

I think the "Top Gun" is the only one on that list that uses a "Top Gun Modulator" mod, I believe the fix could be to make a switch to take it out of line when on SSB.

CB Tricks have a fair bit of info on it also:-

http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/topgun/quad_5/index.htm

There doesn't appear to be a circuit diagram there ?
I'd guess TGT & Qixiang are keeping that to themselves ?

I haven't looked but one of the other radios on the list may have a schematic and I'm wondering if it can be changed by the software.
