UPDATE 18 June 2013

LAFAYETTE TELSAT 805B. I have found the solution to the pulsing problem on the evident mostly when on USB or LSB.  The cure takes about one and a half hours to sort out, so for a rig previously properly aligned it will cost 36 plus return carriage by Interlink of 14.50.  For a rig in needs of a full alignment the cost is 60 plus return carriage of 14.50.

Piptone, Kaytone, Hy Gain Bleeps Frequency mod-demod, FM455 EU and UK add-ons for FM rigs
Spectra bleedover filter, SF10.7 Speech Processor, SP059 UK add-on for multimode rigs
Noise Squelch UK CB to 10m Conversion  

SP1000E SPEECH PROCESSOR to increase the sideband power and hence communications effectiveness of SSB and AM transmissions. The unit has a frequency response which enhances the higher voice tones which carry most of the intelligibility. The peak to mean ratio of the transmission is improved by 10dB which has the same effect as increasing the transmit power by 10 times. Boxed Kit 48.00UK, 55.00 EU, 59.00 World. Ready built 66.00 UK, 75.25 EU, 79.25 World. Prices including tracked carriage.

PCB size 44 x 25 x 17mm. PCB Kit 9.00 UK, 11.00 EU, 12.00 World. PCB Built 13.25 UK, 15.25 EU, 16.20 World.  EU & World tracking 5.50 extra.

KT2000 KAYTONE Bleep (a name coined by Spectrum), this unit is the successor to the original Kaytone sold in 1979. End of message morse K particularly useful for weak signal situations. Adjustable pitch, speed, and level. A relay is included for TX and RX switching making it suitable for all rigs. PCB size 58 x 39 x 15mm.   PCB Kit 14.25 UK, 16.25 EU, 17.25 World.  PCB Built 21.25 UK, 23.25 EU, 24.25 World. EU & World tracking 5.50 extra.

TT2000 TUNETONE Bleep. Musical end of message signal with nine individually selectable notes. Adjustable pitch, level, and speed. With relay switching to make it suitable for all commonly available rigs. PCB Kit 15.50 UK, 17.25 EU, 18.25 World.  PCB built 24.00 UK, 25.50 EU, 26.50 World.  EU & World tracking 5.50 extra.

HG2000 HYGAIN BLEEP  A board designed to mimic the sound made by the bleep unit in the Hy Gain 5 multimode rig. Adjustable speed and level.  With relay switching to make it suitable for all commonly available rigs.  PCB kit 15.00 UK, 17.00 EU, 18.00 World.  PCB built 22.00 UK, 24.00 EU, 25.00 World.    EU & World tracking 5.50 extra.

NS1000 NOISE SQUELCH a really effective cure for all the annoying background noise produced by FM receivers. Allows reception of weak signals without loss of any except those which would have been unreadable anyway. Particularly useful for homebase use where its performance like that of AM is less annoying.         PCB Kit 15.50 UK, 17.50 EU, 18.50 World. PCB built 21.75 UK, 23.75 EU, 24.75 World.  EU & World tracking 5.50 extra.

SF10.7 SPECTRA FILTER active filter incorporating a 2 pole crystal filter to replace the 10.7MHz ceramic first IF filter in early CB radios. The effect is to reduce bleed-over by about 90% and by being active does not cause loss of sensitivity of the rig. PCB size 36x20x17mm. PCB Kit 8.00 UK, 10.00 EU, 11.00 World. PCB built 10.50 UK, 12.25 EU, 13.25 World. EU & world tracking 5.50 extra.

FM455 FREQUENCY MOD-DEMOD adds very good quality FM transmission and reception to AM only CB rigs. Receive side connects to the last IF amplifier before the AM detector. The transmit side connects directly to the microphone input and provides processed audio to the varicap diode in the PLL circuit. PCB size 44x39x16mm. PCB kit 13.50 UK, 15.50 EU, 16.50 World.  PCB built 18.50 UK, 20.50 EU, 21.50 World.  EU & World tracking 5.50 extra.

SP059 SPEECH PROCESSOR for Cybernet multimode rigs. Specially designed to overcome poor quality audio on PTBM059 & PTBM121 chassis. The board picks up the audio drive to the VCO processes it and then feeds an add-on varicap board. PCB size 40x20x15mm. PCB kit 9.50 UK, 11.50 EU, 12.50 World.  PCB built 13.00 UK, 15.00 EU, 16.00 World.  EU & World tracking 5.50 extra.

VCO27 VCO BLOCK. Replacement for green block in Cybernet multimode rigs PTBM059COX and PTBM121D4X, also allows the rig to accommodate extra channels such as UK81 band. Type VCO27 for CB bands, for conversion of rigs to the 10 metre band useVCO28. Built 7.50 UK, 9.10 EU, 10.10 World untracked.

VCO48 VCO BLOCK. Replacement for silver block in Cybernet multimode rigs using PTBM048AOX chassis. 10.00 UK,  12.00 EU, 13.00 World.
