AKD-2001 2m FM rig
The rig is nice and light with 5/25w FM output. Mine is the older version with 25kHz channel separation . However I have now modified to 12.5kHz channel separation thanks to an upgrade kit from Peter at Garex. Garex has since been bought by Tony at Spectrum Communications, prinicipally to market the AKD-4001 I understand; I’m not sure whether the channel separation kit is still available. The upgrade was very straight forward and even the re-alignment wasn’t scary with the help of another receiver. View Alignment Info
The CTCSS mod was using a kit from Peter at JabDog.
Home antenna is a Diamond X50 co-linear at 30′ above the ground, 6/8 wave on 2m.
