Today I acquired a Viking II Civil Defense version. Eventually it will replace my DX-100B as AM transmitter. Factory assembled. Looks unmodified...EXCEPT for that vernier dial added to the front. Appears the CD decal is original and has not been moved. The vernier dial is attached to...nothing. Doesn't look like it ever was attached to anything. Can anyone advise if this dial ever had a CD-version function on the Viking II?

Actually, no. I'm using a home brew class E rig at 400 watts carrier.  My antenna is similar in arrangement (apex at the same height and slopes to the ground), but it's a resonant center fed dipole.  Not "completely" resonant... it's like 1.3:1, but who's counting?

Anyway, I've had QSO's with Tim in Maine and Steve in Massachusetts a couple times with the antenna.  Tim actually reported that I was louder than the other guy he was talking to in Idaho (or, one of those states... I forget which one).


PS> I'm in Vegas right now typing this out on my phone. I'm doing the old man thing. I'm sitting down waiting for my wife.

I need two things:

First; Microphone Coil Cord, 1/4" od (to fit D-104). Need 4 wires plus shield, shield should be wrapped around one wire (for audio) Could use two of these.

Second; Plain, straight Microphone Cable, only need 3 wires plus shield (again, one wire shielded for Audio). Could use about 20' of this.

e-Bay search came up zilch, Google search has a million hits, but so far none with one wire shielded.

Any ideas where to get this stuff ??

Tnx, Dick, W1KSZ

Are you using a Super Senior with the OCF Dipole ? What's your VSWR like on 80 & 40 ?

Hi Clark,  Just found the issue and corrected it,  the coupling switch was jumpered out for some reason.  I removed the jumper and at the moment, things look pretty good.  I am going to load it on phone here in a few after my dummy load cools down lol, and then test out the modulation.  if all goes well I should be on the air soon.
