Hello - my first post on the forum!
Name is Tony, and I'm recently back on the bands after a layoff of 10 years of so.
I wasn't actually planning to experiment with 4m, but I was looking for a hand-held, and eventually settled on a used IC-E90 (from eBay) on the basis that it was a maker I knew from the past, and it was going to cost me less than a new Chinese two-bander. It duly arrived a few days ago, and seems to work fine - but . . .
. . . it's had a 4m conversion, and came with a 4m "rubber duck". I've seen warnings about harmonics and so-on, I'm interested to try and find out more before I set about transmitting on the band. I'd really like to know for sure who actually carried out the mod or (therefore) whether it's a "proper job" or not.
It has the original box with it, showing the correct serial number etc., and on the box is a sticker relating to the conversion:
Does anyone recognise this as relating to any particular retailer, please?
Alternatively, can anyone suggest how else I might be able to tell?
Any info gratefully received.
It would be a shame not to use it to its full capabilities if the conversion is "sound"!
