Swan VX-2 VOX Unit Mod to replace relays with Solid State (PIN Diodes??)
I have "a few" (too many :-) of these old Swan VX-2 VOX units, all in various stages of repair. Being 99.9% a CW guy with the Swan boatanchors I have, these old relay driven units get quite a workout as I turn the delay down and push the semi-QSK limit.
I've killed a few (too many :-) of them too.
There is a Mod for these old Swan VOX unit where the relays are replaced with PIN diodes (?) to not only resurrect dead VX-2s (Maybe even VX-1s?) but after Modding, true QSK also becomes possible. I know this old VX-2 Mod exists... A friend of mine in AZ has one. Well I've searched this forum and used my best Google-Fu out in the wilds of the Intertubes, but I cannot find any schematic or discussion on this Mod.
Can anyone please point me in the direction of this Mod?

Swans and Drakes do NOT
belong in lakes. Maybe some Heathkits do, depending on who built them
