Enter the adjustment mode

Turn the transceiver's power OFF.

Connect the JIG plug to the [REMOTE] jack on the rear panel.

While pushing and holding [P.AMP/ATT] and [TUNE/CALL], turn the transceiver power ON.

Enter TX adjustment mode. : Push [F-2 (TX)]

CAUTION: Connect a dummy load to the antenna connectors during the transmitter adjustment.

To make this adjustment, you must transmit with an audio input on the MIC connector of 30mV at 1.5kHz. Suggest a close look at service manual before trying.
