How to change a TS-2000 E2 model into an E,K model
- Remove the bottom (10 screws) and top (4 screws) covers.
- In the front panel, remove the top screws and loosen the bottom screws.
- Pull the front panel forward.
- You will see a fan on the left.
- To the right of the fan there is a group of 8 jumpers (foto)
47 49 51 53
48 50 52 54
Within these jumpers you can place 0 Ohm resistors to change the configuration of the transceiver.
R47 - Configuration E2 model
R48 - Configuration E model
R47 and R48 removed - Configuration K model
When changing the model, the TX will be changed in the following bands:
E2 E K 160m 1,8-1,85 1,8-2 1,6-2 80m 3,5-3,8 3,5-3,8 3,5-4 40m 7,0-7,2 7,0-7,2 7,0-7,3 6m 50-50,2 50-52 50-54 2m 144-146 144-146 144-14 70cm 430-440 430-440 430-450
If you set up K model for its use in Europe, remember to turn OFF menu number 43 and change the repeater offset [ FUNC, 9 ] for UHF to 7600 KHz.
The 0 Ohm resistors must be placed in R47 or R48 in order to activate the E2 or E model. To obtain K model it is necessary to remove both.
In the others jumpers you must remove the 0 Ohm resistor to obtain the following advantages.
R52 - Extension of RX in the sub receiver (118 MHz - 525 MHz)
R53 - Extension of TX. It will transmit in all frequencies.
R54 - Expand options (Cross-band repeater, Sky Command, etc.)
After any modification you will have to full reset the transceiver; for that, follow the next steps.
- Turn off the transceiver
- A=B pressed while turning on. [ POWER + A=B ].
- Then confirm reset with A=B.
- All memories and menu configuration will be lost.
If you use the software MCP-2000 to configure the transceiver and you have made this modification, delete the next entry in the Windows registry:
Run the MCP-2000 again and it will answer again for the transceiver model.
You can also change the entry in the Windows registry
type="E10" para E2
type="E20" para E
type="600" para K
To assign the memories in the MCP-2000 for its use in Europe, it is important to take into account that the option -7.6MHz Shift in UHF does not exist. Use "Minus Shift" option and set 7600 KHz value in "Offset".
Enjoy your TS-2000!
