   No Mod.
   VR112 
 
Remove the B002(PB-100) from the Main PCB. 
Connect a DC Ammeter (+) to TP4, (-) to TP3. 
Adjust VR112 for 50mA reading on the DC Ammeter. 
Ditto VR113  Connect a DC Ammeter (+) to TP4, (-) to TP2. 
Adjust VR113 for 50 mA reading on DC Ammeter. 
3 1mV Mod.  L111   Disconnect DC Ammeter. Reinstall the B002 to the Main PCB. 
Connect A RF Power meter to the ANT. jack. Connect a RF VTVM, an oscilloscope and a FM Linear Detector across a RF Dummy Load to the RF Power meter. 
Adjust L111 for maximum reading on the RF VTVM. 
During this step, set the AF oscillator so that the output is less than 20V. 
Repeat this two times.
30 mV Mod.  VR104  Adjust VR104 for 32.5V reading on the RF VTVM.

With the SW turned on, adjust VR103 for 21W reading on the Power meter. 
7 Mode: AM 
No Mod.
VR107  Adjust VR107 for 10W reading on the RF power meter. 
8 Ditto VR117 Adjust VR117 so that "9" LCD just lights on.
9 1 kHz, 30mV 
Modulation
VR114  Adjust VR114 to obtain the 85% negative reading on the oscilloscope
10 1kHz, 1mV 
Modulation 
INDIC: MOD 
VR115  Adjust VR115 so that "9" LCD just lights on.
