Voyage 9000 Modification
I truly hope you find these modifications helpful. As I stated earlier, I have tried to present this information as clearly as possible. The order of certain steps was presented in such a way as to minimize any chance of damage to your radio in the final alignment and testing.
Connecting the antenna load BEFORE connecting the power leads makes good sense, so as not to accidentally transmit into an open circuit is one example. I have slightly modified the procedures outlined in the original NPC-RC documentation to make the explainations a little clearer to understand for the novice.
While these instructions are not complicated in themselves, I felt that a useful tool would be a series of pictures to help clear up any confusion along the way. I hope I have accomplished my goal to that end. If you have successfully followed the steps outlined herein, I'm sure you will agree that your radio is running much cooler, has more power and talks cleaner then most radios on the air.
