It was very usefull, it is clear the quality is super, the price I paid is very afordable.
Generally speaking Iam very happy with this company.
The manual was exactly what I needed, Good quality scans too. superb.
I am so happy found this site as it consists of so many Manuls and easy to aquire. This onei s exactly what I wanted and much more as it has info on not only how to use the tuner but how to repair it as well. I will come here 1st before purchasing else where! Thanks owner-manual.com!
Top class product, I printed it out on A3 paper and it is clear and very easy to follow.
Cheaper than buying a new radio!
is part of the manual is very useful for repairing
Here are circuit diagrams
if there is damage, I recommend using this part of the
a complete list of circuit boards and components
5. Frequency Synthesizer Unit
5-1. Frequency synthesizer
The frequency synthesizer consists of the VCXO (X2), VCO (IC14), PLL IC (IC11) and buffer amplifiers. The VCXO generates 16.8MHz. The frequency stability is 1.5ppm within the temperature range of â30 to +60Â°C. The frequency tuning and modulation of the VCXO are done to apply a voltage to pin 1 of the VCXO. The output of the VCXO is applied to pin 8 of the PLL IC. The TK-480âs VCO covers a dual range of the 806~ 825MHz, and the 851~870MHz. The VCO generates 806.15~825.15MHz for providing to the first local signal in receive. In TA mode, the pin 1 of the VCO goes low and the VCO generates 851~870MHz. The TK-481âs VCO covers a dual range of the 896~ 902MHz, and the 935~941MHz. The VCO generates 890.15~896.15MHz for providing to the first local signal in receive. In TA mode, the pin 1 of the VCO goes low and the VCO generates 935~941MHz. The output of the VCO is amplified by the buffer amplifier (Q8) and routed to the pin 5 of the PLL IC. Also the output of the VCO is amplified by the two-buffer amplifier (Q10, Q17) and routed to the next stage according to T/R switch (D4, D5). The PLL IC consists of a prescaler, fractional divider, reference divider, phase comparator, charge pump. This PLL IC is fractional-N type synthesizer and performs in the 100kHz reference signal which is eighth of the channel step (12.5kHz). The input signal from the pins 1 and 5 of the PLL IC is divided down to the 100kHz and compared at phase comparator. The pulsed output signal of the phase comparator is applied to the charge pump and transformed into DC signal in the loop filter (LPF). The DC signal is applied to the pin 3 of the VCO and locked to keep the VCO frequency constant. PLL data is output from DT (pin 52), CP (pin 64) and EP (pin 69) of the microprocessor (IC15). The data are input to the PLL IC when the channel is changed or when transmission is changed to reception and vice versa. A PLL lock condition is always monitored by the pin 21 (UL) of the microprocessor. When the PLL is unlocked, the UL goes low.
6. Control Circuit
The control circuit consists of microprocessor (IC15) and its peripheral circuits. It controls the TX-RX unit and transfers data to and from the display unit. IC15 mainly performs the following; 1) Switching between transmission and reception by PTT signal input. 2) Reading system, group, frequency, and program data from the memory circuit. 3) Sending frequency program data to the PLL. 4) Controlling squelch on/off by the DC voltage from the squelch circuit. 5) Controlling the audio mute circuit by decode data input. 6) Transmitting tone and encode data.
6-1. Memory circuit
Memory circuit consists of the CPU (IC15) and a flash memory (IC17), a flash memory has a capacity of 2M bits that contains the transceiver control program for the CPU and data such as transceiver channels and operating features. This program can be easily written from an external devices. The data, such as operating status, is programmed into the EEPROM (IC16).
â¢ Flash Memory
Note : The flash memory holds data such as written with the FPU (KPG-49D), firmware program (User mode, Test mode, Tuning mode, etc.) This data must be rewritten when replacing the flash memory.
Note : The EEPROM stores tuning data (Deviation, Squelch, etc.). Realign the transceiver after replacing the EEPROM.
