Initial meeting of all
interested in MAXON mods is to be held at our Clubrooms starting 7.30pm.
A culmination of the 2003 series.
Following on from the successful 2003 series, we will be running a practical

Keith ZL1BQE shows 6 boards that had been modified to accept the chip.
(He lost the lot on the night!. He would like the replaced board in exchange,

are to be posted on these pages giving blow by blow description of the
Mic / PTT, the Reguator inclusion and the modifications to one of the PC
boards to allow the Protocol circuit.
