Hi all, I have recently purchased a FDK/KLM Multi 2700, which I intend to restore, but a few hours of web searhing has not provided any technical assistance. I am tryng to find any documentation for the radio, user manual, service manual or even just a schematic would be usefull. I hope that there is someone out there that can help, many thanks in advance.

Karl -

As a historical footnote, "KLM", stood for Ken, Leeland, and Mike, the original group that founded the company. Ken Holladay, Leeland "Mel" Farrer, and Mike Staal.

The KLM Multi-2000 and Multi-2700 were USA imported versions of the Japanese FDK Multi-2000 and Multi-2700 transceiver (Fukuyama Electronics, Tokyo).

MODS.DK has the Instruction Manual for the FDK Multi-2700 (no schematic)

You can start with the eHam.net reviews, which will tell you previous or current owners.

Rick, WK4R has SOME information on this specific radio.
There was a European model.

W4QCF supposedly has the Service Manual for the Multi-2700

Jose V. Gavila, EB5AGV has the FDK Multi-2700 in his collection.
Jose is one of the moderators for the Yahoo Group: Amateur Repairs
He would be a good reference resource in Spain.

In addition, post an inquiry on the AMSAT-NA or AMSAT-UK mail reflectors.
The KLM (FDK) Multi-2700 transceiver was used by 1970s and 1980s satellite operators ..
especially with the Oscar 6/7 and Radio Sputnik (RS) satellites active in that era.
