I purchased Alinco DJ-191T, I wanted to register it. But it operates in the range from 130 MHz to 174 MHz, both for reception and transmission. Gossvyaznadzor will misunderstand this. It is required to drive the station into the range of 144-146 MHz. How to do it? In general, this device (like almost all bourgeois ones) operates in two modes: closed and open. For most stations, this is done by poking a jumper, removing a wire or piece (usually a diode). My Alinco does this with a programmer. I assembled the ERW-4 cable, launched the program, set the parameters and wired up the station. The scheme and the program can be taken on the “site of the Kuban radio amateurs”. The closed station began to work from 144 MHz, but up to 148 MHz. Won't go. Wrong letter at the end. For use by radio amateurs in Russia, only stations of this type with the letter “E” at the end are suitable. What to do?

In general, for decent devices, the model changes with the presence / absence of a jumper, diode, resistor. After all, the bourgeois will not develop a different processor, a printed circuit board for each model. Alinco DJ-191 is no exception. We look at the diagram, in its corner there is a small plate:

  R79 R84 R1008 J1
T - - - jumper
TA - - - -
E 1k 1k 0 -

So, to translate “T” into “E”, you need to solder 3 resistors and remove the wire.

Let's look at the diagram.

We found these resistors. We disconnect the battery, antenna, turn out 4 bolts from the back cover. I hope you know what you're doing, it could void your warranty on the station and put it out of action by your inept actions. The most zapadlo that the details on the board are not signed. We look where the track from the 14th output of the processor goes. It goes into a cluster of resistors located under IC1 (EEPROM), one of them is not soldered and one mounting pad is called to ground. This is R84. Tracing 9 of the processor output does not give anything, the track goes under the processor. We are looking for J1, it is signed and located between the processor and the F-PTT-TB-Moni buttons. To the left below it is a group of resistors and there are two empty spaces. These are R79 (one platform is called to ground) and R1008 (it is called in parallel with J1). Resistors can be found in another way. We are looking for empty mounting sites (there are 6 of them), we select those in which one site calls to the ground, these are R79 and R84 (there is also R77). Then we call the second platform on the processor output: 14 for R84 and 9 for R79. We are also looking for R1008, put an ohmmeter on the 9th output of the processor and look for an empty area, the second area should call to ground through R60 at 47 kilo-ohms.

We solder two resistors of 1 kiloohm, they say “102”. R1008 is a jumper (resistance 0 ohm, inscription “0”) and is connected in parallel with J1, so we will not solder it. It is a very laborious operation to solder resistors for surface mounting. You put it on the pads, previously lubricated with rosin flux, it sticks. But the resistor must be held (best with a long nail on the index finger of the left hand), otherwise it will move during soldering. I solder with an ordinary 25-watt soldering iron, the very tip of the tip.

Everything, we assemble the station and turn on the power. There is no need to do a general reset of the station. You can go to Gossvyaznadzor.

Transparent hint: the processor still has conclusions signed by BP. And then there is Alinco DJ-491, which operates in the 430 MHz band, and, as I think, they have the same processor boards. But it’s not worth experimenting, the synthesizer will not be able to overtake the VCO and there will be no PLL synchronization, and if you press PTT, then the consequences are not predictable.

Artificial leather for touch emulation 15.04.2024

In a modern technology world where distance is becoming increasingly commonplace, maintaining connection and a sense of closeness is important. Recent developments in artificial skin by German scientists from Saarland University represent a new era in virtual interactions. German researchers from Saarland University have developed ultra-thin films that can transmit the sensation of touch over a distance. This cutting-edge technology provides new opportunities for virtual communication, especially for those who find themselves far from their loved ones. The ultra-thin films developed by the researchers, just 50 micrometers thick, can be integrated into textiles and worn like a second skin. These films act as sensors that recognize tactile signals from mom or dad, and as actuators that transmit these movements to the baby. Parents' touch to the fabric activates sensors that react to pressure and deform the ultra-thin film. This ... >>

The attractiveness of caring men 14.04.2024

The stereotype that women prefer "bad boys" has long been widespread. However, recent research conducted by British scientists from Monash University offers a new perspective on this issue. They looked at how women responded to men's emotional responsibility and willingness to help others. The study's findings could change our understanding of what makes men attractive to women. A study conducted by scientists from Monash University leads to new findings about men's attractiveness to women. In the experiment, women were shown photographs of men with brief stories about their behavior in various situations, including their reaction to an encounter with a homeless person. Some of the men ignored the homeless man, while others helped him, such as buying him food. A study found that men who showed empathy and kindness were more attractive to women compared to men who showed empathy and kindness. ... >>

Altruism relieves stress 17.01.2016

Imagine that the day did not start very well: you overslept, you are late for work and already halfway to the metro you suddenly realize that you forgot to take an important document in a hurry. And just when your stress hormone levels should be hitting records, you suddenly see an older man in the crowd in front of you drop his wallet. Will you help him pick it up or will you walk past?

All things considered, your condition does not seem conducive to altruism. However, according to psychologists from Yale, in such a situation it is worth overpowering yourself and helping another person, since a good deed will just help reduce stress levels. A study by Emily Ansell and colleagues found that over a two-week period, dozens of adults aged 18 to 44 reported their emotional state and what good they did in a day in terms of helping others. .

Altruism didn't have to be on a grand scale, it was enough to help someone figure out how to get to the right street, or hold the elevator for someone who didn't have time to get into it, pick up something that someone dropped , etc. In those days when a person often helped someone, the helper's mood improved and, in response to stress, he had less emotional "negativity". (Presumably, the level of stress was also taken into account, otherwise all this would not have made any sense.) And in this case, the point is not to compare in philanthropy with some ideal, but that it is enough to be kinder than you usually get it.

Previously, such work was carried out, but only in certain groups - for example, among married couples in which one spouse had to take care of a seriously ill other. However, apparently, the described psychological phenomenon is characteristic of all people. In general, there is an opinion, again supported by some observations, that altruists feel better and live longer. As for the specific mechanism of such emotional benefits from kindness, here we can only guess.

One explanation is that by helping others, we get distracted from thinking how bad things are for us, and this way of distraction works much more effectively than, say, binge watching TV shows or surfing the Internet. From a neuroscientific point of view, altruistic actions can stimulate the release of appropriate neurotransmitters that serve the emotional centers. But be that as it may, now psychologists are already thinking whether it can somehow be used in the treatment of obsessive anxiety, depression, etc., so that a person can literally cope with his gloomy thoughts with the help of good deeds.
