Palomar MaxMod
Product Description
Product Description Does the regulator in your radio run hot? Excessive heat from a transistor means the part is undersized for the circuit or that the circuit itself is not very efficient. Changing the radio’s modulation circuit is impossible. But the solution for this problem is the Palomar MAX-MOD Transistor. Palomar is a famous old CB brand name from the USA. The name is owned and used now by EKL Components, the mother company also for Magnum Radio’s and RF Limited Accesories. New in the Palomar program is the MAX-MOD, a special PNP transistor. The MAX-MOD is a replacement and upgrade PNP transistor for the modulation circuit in most radio’s. The MAX-MOD replaces the common 2SB and TIP parts. The MAX-MOD works very well in 10M radio’s, including Stryker, Anytone, Galaxy and President models. The MAX-MOD will give the RF section the current it needs and will increase the peak power by and average of 10% or more. The MAX-MOD has the same lead spacing as the smaller transistors it replaces, making soldering very easy. The MAX-MOD uses a huge TO-3PL package for improved heat dissipation.

FESATURES OF PALOMAR MAX-MOD TRANSISTOR: • High Current / High Power PNP Power Transistor (AM Regulator) • Replaces & Upgrades TIP32 & 36, 2SB688, 2SB754, 2SB817, 2SB827 and other AM Regulator Transistors in CB and Amateur Radios • Supplies Necessary Current Levels for Maximum Modulation • Most Radios See a 10% Increase in Peak Power Levels • Runs 40%* Cooler than Stock Regulators • Massive TO-3PL Package for Improved Heat Dissipation • Comes with Mica Insulator

Price includes installation in a new radio.

Basic Clarifier Mod
Product Description
This option locks your TX/RX together. Makes the Clarifier control both TX/RX frequency together. Highly recommended!!! Don't be one of those guys that sounds like Mickey Mouse when he yells CQ_DX! Keep your transmitter and receiver locked together. As one that almost exclusively operates on side band, this mod is a must! It is annoying when someone QSK's into a conversation that is totally off frequency. Then everyone tells them they're off frequency but he is unable to tune his transmit to where he hears everyone else talking. So he inevitably gets ignored. With your clarifier controlling both TX & RX at the same time, where you hear operators talking is where your transmit will be sending. *

The advantage is that your transmitted signal will be on the same frequency as the signal you are receiving. I'm sure if you've heard any skip on channel 38 you've heard people that are way off from everyone else. They sound like Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck. Some are so far off frequency that you cannot even understand what they are saying. To "unlock" the clarifier means that your transmit is no longer "locked" to where it was set at the factory. It allows you to move around the channel frequency to match your receiver and where everyone else is transmitting and receiving. It also allows you to move off frequency to have a more private/quiet conversation with a friend. We sometimes move to .380 vice .385 just to have a more quiet conversation. So yes, lots of benefits. I wish everyone had their clarifier unlocked.

Deluxe increases slide range.

Top Gun Tech SP-1a Speech Processor
Product Description
The SP-1a Speech Processor was developed by Clear Channel Corporation for the Ranger AR-3300 and AR3500 radios. It works well in most radios in AM FM & SSB. It is an audio processor that delivers an average of 90% modulation. It boosts lower levels to within 90% of it’s maximum output with a very low distortion. It connects in-line of the audio Mic input of the microphone jack. It also requires a 12 Volt connection in the radio. A SPST switch can be used to switch the SP-1a in and out of the circuit. When switched off the speech processor is completely out of the circuit leaving the radio back to stock audio. Price includes installation.

Product Description
Replaces the Clarifier with a 10 turn precision control. On the DX959 and 2547, adds the LesComm Deluxe clarifier Option for more slide. +/-6KCs.

Due to the size of the 10 turn potentiometer;

On the LC995vXX it replaces the Echo control.

On the LC994v200 & LC998vX00 it replaces the Talkback control. Talkback is moved to the old clarifier position.

TERMS: WE BUILD CUSTOM RADIOS! I BELIEVE IN QUALITY BEFORE QUANTITY! (And from the sales I'm receiving, so do you!)

SO IF YOU'RE IMPATIENT, DO NOT ORDER FROM ME!! Let me repeat that, IF YOU'RE IMPATIENT, DO NOT ORDER FROM ME!! I SIMPLY REFUSE TO RUSH MY BUILDS. Each radio goes through 24 hours minimum of burn-in testing when it's finished. IT WILL BE RIGHT WHEN IT LEAVES MY SHOP!

Our Build Policy; Average turn around time for "CUSTOM BUILT RADIOS" is running between 180 to 240 business days at present (as of Aug 2019). Customers are taking advantage of the MANY custom options we offer. Depending on the difficulty of your build OR THE BUILDS IN FRONT OF IT, this time could be longer! There are NO REFUNDS for custom radio or amplifier orders. NO EXCEPTIONS! NO EXCEPTIONS! SO BE SURE BEFORE YOU ORDER!

"Custom" in this case means that you have added an option that requires a modification to the stock radio. Alignment and Tune ups do not constitute custom. But Max Mod, Clarifier mod, LesComm Enhancements, etc. constitute Custom.

Every radio gets tuned/aligned unless you specifically say not to. So, no options radios are now 10 to 15 business days depending on the model (as of Aug 2019).

20% restocking fee on "as new, non-customized" radio returns. Radios are built AFTER they are ordered in the order of "payment" received.

AGAIN, THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR RETURNS ON CUSTOM RADIO OR AMPLIFIER ORDERS, NO EXCEPTIONS. So be sure BEFORE you order!

This is how it works folks. When you place an order for one of our custom radios we immediately (that day) order the necessary parts needed to build that radio including the donor radio, and set them aside for your build. So we have already invested your money in your order. We do this to prevent coming up short of the parts needed because it was discontinued or changed. (Which happens a lot!) I know this is a long time folks. But I'm only one person. I will work as fast as I can, without compromising quality, to get your order out. So as it says above, if you are an impatient person, do not order from me.

YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS WHENEVER YOU PURCHASE FROM THIS WEB SITE.

Side note; We have stopped selling custom radios on ebay. Because of this I expect build times to become shorter. And our build times are slowly becoming shorter. We very much appreciate your business. And to all of my many, many repeat customers a very special thank you. Tells me I'm doing something right! 73 Everybody!
