    ICOM IC-208H DUAL BAND MOBILE
    Extended RX/TX By: KD4CWB

    Place the radio with the front panel toward you and bottom side / speaker side UP.
    Remove the (4) screws located in each corner.
    *CAREFUL! Go slow, you will need to disconnect the speaker cable while removing the cover.
    Look at the lower right hand corner of the main printed circuit board.
    *You should see a silver crystal with the number "D196D3C" printed on it.
    *Just above the crystal, you should see an (8x8) matrix pad (see below diagram).

    Note: there are ONLY (2) resistors in place. (Bottom right and the one directly above it).
    *REMOVE BOTH RESISTORS [Do NOT attempt this unless you know how to use a low wattage soldering iron]

    *RESET THE RADIO, hold the [SET LOCK] and [S.MW-MW] buttonsdown during power-up.
