On the Hamradio Friedrichshafen I got myself a Wouxun KG-818 VHF (5W, 136-174.995 MHz). I plan to realize a small APRS transmitter for my car.
…whithout batteries. You have to remove the screws on the bottom left and right…
…as well as the nut around the antenna connector …
…to slide-wedge the whole assembly bottomwards-out. The dials will come off as well as some plastic thingy. Beware of the ribbon!
The two modules. On the left the processor/TRX-board, on the right, the LCD/speaker/kexs section with part of the case.
And once again the TRX/Chinagirl-module. Unfortunately the PCB is soldered to the RF-connector, which prevented me from further teardown, because I had no soldering iron at hand. Underneath the firmwaresticker it reads “M64X802″.
Great!” The TRX works even without its keys/speaker etc attached!
Well and that’s about it. I will mod this further so stay tuned.
