Wanted to post this here to potentially have a benefit for others.

I have a PCI Kenwood TK-790H that I would like to convert from fixed head to remote head.


After popping the face off I noticed that there is what appears to be a choke or ferrite ring installed between the speaker and the board.


I am assuming this is to block RF but wanted to ask a few questions before proceeding.


1. Can or should this be removed without any downstream problems?
2. Is there any way to keep this w/o having to run an external wire?
3. Am I correct on the function?


Thanks in advance for the help!!!


Ben

Ben - call Gerardo or Mark at PCI. I am pretty sure that the radio has to be specifically programmed to accomplish this.
Bob,
Thanks for the reply.

PCI top notch customer service beat you to it.

Next day after my post Gerado beat you to it and called me in the office!!

He was helpful enough to make me dangerous and from experience I knew this one was best left to the professionals.

For those wondering it is a mod done to interface properly with the intercoms.

Dropped it off on Friday.
