SB650

   

HW-101 Interfaces
All connections are made at the cathodes of the various oscillator tubes.
All connections are made through a 27pF cap and RG-174 coax. 27 pf was found to provide adequate coupling without loading any stage.
HFO connection at pin 7 of V11
VFO connection at pin 7 of V12
BFO connection at pin 9 of V13
Bypass (Jumper out) the input .01 and the 1 K resistor on the HFO input circuit of the counter if it will not count above 15 meters.
Keep cables as short as possible.
