Glad that your project was successful and painless.
Now you know how to do it. Going forward you can
do it on other HF rigs or help others do it.
Even little DIY projects like this are rewarding,IMO.
I was very fortunate on the ebay radio in that it had the Piexx memory board and a Piexx serial port installed. I don't know what other mods may have been done but it is a great radio
as I did an A-B comparison with my Omni 6 plus on receive with a five band hex beam and could not declare a winner.
I know a couple guys with IC-751A's. They are terrific
radios...and, I think, an underrated radio in the community.
Yeah, a little long in the tooth, but so what?
You done good in picking it up. I would highly recommend
that you refrain from doing any
mods on it.
(I know, you didn't say you were going to, but I thought I'd
throw that out there anyway.)
It works great, has the Piexx Mods for CAT control,
very good performer. You scored, buddy!
