Characteristics
Shure T2 Vocal Artist Microphone Transmitter
Circuit Description
This unit contains two interconnected circuit boards that comprise
the audio and RF sections, respectively. It is intended for use with the
matching T3 and T4 receivers.
FCC-Approved vs. ETSI-Approved Models: Models approved by
the Federal Communications Commission (assembly number 90–8690,
with boards marked 34A8494) have different sections from those approved by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (assembly number 90–8705, with boards marked 34A8538). The FCC-approved version, sold in North America and many other places, uses only
the frequencies listed in Table 3 on page 12. The ETSI-approved version,
sold in Europe and many other places, uses only the frequencies listed
in Table 4 on page 13. Hence, the following circuit descriptions have separate sections for the two RF boards. The audio sections are the same
for all T2 models.
Audio Section
Input: The microphone element converts the sound source into an
electrical signal, which then enters the audio board through the center
contact of the head board (Figure 5, page 16).
Preamplifier Stage: This is centered in one section of operational
amplifier U102C. Externally accessible potentiometer R175 adjusts the
voltage gain of this stage over a 25 dB range.
Passive Pre-emphasis Network and Compandor: The network
(R145, C110, C111, C112, and R115) has a pole at 63 microseconds and
a zero at 12 microseconds. The NE571D integrated circuit compander
(U101A) provides 2:1 logarithmic compression of the audio signal.
Noise, Distortion, and Limiting: U102A lowers the noise floor, and
internal potentiometer R130 nulls the system audio distortion. Operational amplifier U102B, operating as a two-pole, active low-pass filter,
restricts the bandwidth of the system to the audio frequencies. PNP transistors Q103 and Q104 limit the level of the audio signal leaving the
audio section via U102B.
5 Vdc Bias and LED Drive Circuits: The NE571D’s identical second
channel (U101B) supplies regulated, low-noise 5 Vdc bias to various
audio and RF circuit points. Transistor Q105 provides “reverse battery
protection” to the circuit. Q106 drives LED D101 (“Power 0n”), and Q107
drives LED D102 (“Low Battery”).
RF Section: FCC-Approved Models
Audio Input: Processed audio enters R217, an internal potentiometer that is adjusted for 15 kHz deviation (100% modulation) when the
audio section provides a –2.2 dBV, 1 kHz tone.
Oscillation: The audio then goes to varactor diode D201, which is
part of the modulated oscillator-tripler stage (Q201). The latter’s baseemitter circuit operates as a crystal-controlled Colpitts oscillator in the

20 MHz region. Fundamental-mode crystal Y201 is tuned 10 kHz below
series resonance by the series combination of frequency-netting coil
L209, diode D201, capacitor C214, and capacitor divider C224 and
C230.
Frequency and Temperature Stability: To ensure frequency stability despite changes in the battery voltage, regulated 5 Vdc bias is applied to the varactor diode and to the base of Q201. C224, C230, and
C214 provide temperature compensation.
Tuned Circuits (FCC-Approved Models)
Stage 1: The collector circuit of Q201 is tuned to the third harmonic
of the oscillator frequency (approximately 60 MHz) by L205, C225, C234,
L202, C217, C237, and C233. (The latter components also form a capacitively tapped voltage divider for matching into the base of Q203.)
The output is double-tuned to provide high spectral purity. Regulated dc
bias is again employed to minimize changes in loading on the oscillator
stage and to stabilize the drive levels.
Stage 2: Q203 operates as a frequency tripler, with the collector circuit tuned to the output frequency (for example, 180 MHz). In this case,
L204, C216, C238, C236, L210, C235, and C222 perform tuning and
impedance-matching functions. As in the preceding stage, regulated dc
bias is applied to the base circuit to stabilize the drive level, and the
output is double-tuned to provide spectral purity.
Stage 3: Q204 operates as a tuned amplifier. Resistive loading on
the input provides stability. The output circuit consists of a resonant tank
circuit (L203 and C213) capacitively coupled to a low-pass filter (C219,
L206, and C218). C213 and C219 provide a capacitively tapped voltage
divider for matching into the low-pass filter.
Final Output (FCC-Approved Models)
Transmitter: This can deliver up to +17 dBm (50 milliwatts) to the
antenna. No user adjustments permit this value to be exceeded. Testpoint I110 provides a termination point for the 50 Ω output. C211 and
L207 act as a series resonating network for the battery, which acts as the
antenna. The unit should be powered exclusively by a 9 Vdc dry battery
(an alkaline type like the Duracell MN1604 is recommended).
Voltage Measurements: With 9 Vdc applied to the unit, the following voltages should appear at the terminals of the output transistor:

Vb = .450 Vdc

Characteristics
Shure T2 Vocal Artist Microphone Transmitter
The output power is +16.5 dBm (44.7 mW) into a 50 Ω load, at a frequency of 169.4445 MHz. At the lowest acceptable battery voltage of
6 Vdc, the final collector current drops to 15 mAdc and the output power
to +13.9 dBm (24.4 mW).
Spurious Emissions: To minimize the production and radiation of
spurious emissions and harmonic energy, and to promote stable operation, the collector of each RF stage is separately decoupled from the 9 V
supply by ferrite chokes, resistors, and bypass capacitors. The base circuits are similarly decoupled except they use resistor-capacitor (R-C)
networks, whose higher-impedance levels are more appropriate.
RF Section: ETSI-Approved Models
Audio Input: Processed audio enters R201, an internal potentiometer that is adjusted for 15 kHz deviation (100% modulation) when the
audio section provides a –2.2 dBV, 1 kHz tone.
Oscillation: The audio then goes to varactor diode D201, which is
part of the modulated oscillator-tripler stage (Q201). The latter’s baseemitter circuit operates as a crystal-controlled Colpitts oscillator in the
20 MHz region. Fundamental-mode crystal Y201 is tuned 10 kHz below
series resonance by the series combination of frequency-netting coil
L201, diode D201, capacitor C203, and capacitor divider C206 and
C207.
Frequency and Temperature Stability: To ensure frequency stability despite changes in the battery voltage, regulated 5 Vdc bias is applied to the varactor diode and to the base of Q201. C203, C206, and
C207 provide temperature compensation.
Tuned Circuits (ETSI-Approved Models)
Stage 1: The collector circuit of Q201 is tuned to the third harmonic
of the oscillator frequency (approximately 60 MHz) by L202, C208, C244,
C210, L203, C214, C213, and C215. (The latter components also form a
capacitively tapped voltage divider for matching into the base of Q202.)
The output is double-tuned to provide high spectral purity. Regulated dc
bias is again employed to minimize changes in loading on the oscillator
stage and to stabilize the drive levels.
Stage 2: Q202 operates as a buffer, with the collector circuit tuned to
the output frequency (for example, 60 MHz). In this case, L204, C216,
C245, C218, L205, C222, C221, and C224 perform tuning and impedance-matching functions. As in the preceding stage, regulated dc bias is
applied to the base circuit to stabilize the drive level, and the output is
double-tuned to provide spectral purity.
Stage 3: Q203 operates as a frequency tripler, with the collector circuit tuned to the output frequency (for example, 180 MHz). In this case,
L206, C226, C227, C229, L207, C230, and C232 perform tuning and
impedance-matching.
Stage 4: Q204 operates as a tuned amplifier. Resistive loading on
the input provides stability. The output circuit consists of a resonant tank

circuit (L203 and C213) capacitively coupled to a low-pass filter (C219,
L206, and C218). C213 and C219 provide a capacitively tapped voltage
divider for matching into the low-pass filter.
Final Output (ETSI-Approved Models)
Transmitter: This can deliver up to +11.5 dBm (14 milliwatts) to the
antenna. No user adjustments permit this value to be exceeded. Testpoint TP6 provides a termination point for the 50 Ω output. C243 and
L211 act as a series resonating network for the battery, which acts as the
antenna. The unit should be powered exclusively by a 9 Vdc dry battery
(an alkaline type like the Duracell MN1604 is recommended).

Power input = 87 mW
The output power is +9.5 dBm (8.9 mW) into a 50 Ω load, at a frequency of 169.4445 MHz. At the lowest acceptable battery voltage of
6 Vdc, the final collector current drops to 8.84 mAdc and the output
power to +7.3 dBm (5.4 mW).
Spurious Emissions: To minimize the production and radiation of
spurious emissions and harmonic energy, and to promote stable operation, the collector of each RF stage is separately decoupled from the 9 V
supply by ferrite chokes, resistors, and bypass capacitors. The base circuits are similarly decoupled except they use resistor-capacitor (R-C)

Preliminary Tests
Listening Tests
Before disassembling the unit, operate it to determine whether it is
functioning normally.
Focused Testing: First and most important: Review any customer
complaint or request and focus your tests on any reported problem for
both listening and functional tests. For example, many complaints are for
“short range” and “drop-outs.” In such cases, perform only the RF tests in
this section to verify the problem. If the unit passes these, there is a
strong indication that the customer is using the product incorrectly (e.g.,
not keeping the transmitter in the receiver’s line of sight, not avoiding
metal enclosures or TV interference). Return the unit to the customer
together with an explanation of the proper set-up procedures.
Functional Test
For complaints of distortion or other audio problems, try a “standard”
microphone cartridge (you should have one of each cartridge on-hand
for testing) and perform the audio tests in this section.
Note: Most of the following tests can be performed without disassembling the unit.
RF Tests
1. Install a fresh 9 V battery in the T2, mute its audio, and turn it on.
2. Measure current drain: it should not exceed 35 mA.
3. Maximize the signal received on the spectrum analyzer by attaching a telescoping whip antenna to it. Then measure the
near-field output power: it should be 7 dBm (FCC-approved
model) or 3 dBm (ETSI-approved model).
(If you are unsure of the results you obtained here, measure the
output power conductively by soldering a 50 Ω cable to the output of the transmitter. Verify that the output power is 15 dBm,
2 dBm [FCC-approved model] or 10 dBm, 2 dBm [ETSI-approved model].)
4. Verify that the carrier frequency of the transmitter varies from its
nominal value by no more than "6 kHz.
5. Check for an intermittent problem by shaking the transmitter and
tapping on it. As you do so, try to keep it at a constant distance
from the spectrum analyzer. Verify that the output power on the
spectrum analyzer shows no large and sudden drops in power
level (it will, however, vary a few dB with hand position).
6. Turn off the T2.
If the transmitter passes the above tests, its RF circuits are
working as designed.

Audio Tests
A: Verify the Matching Receiver
1. Make sure that the receiver is turned off. Connect the signal
generator to the receiver through a 50 Ω cable. Tack-solder the
center conductor to the antenna input and ground the shield of
the cable to pcb ground. Turn on the receiver.
2. Set the RF signal generator as follows:
Amplitude: –50 dBm
Modulation: 1 kHz
Deviation: 15 kHz
Frequency: T2 operating frequency
3. Connect the audio from the unbalanced output to the audio analyzer with a 3.3 kΩ load. Turn the Volume control all the way up.
4. Engage the 400 Hz and 30 kHz filters on the audio analyzer.
Verify the following:
S
For the T3 and T4 the audio level is 400 mVrms ("90 mV)
S
For the T4N the audio level is 626 mVrms ("120 mV)
S
thd = <0.75%
B: Check the Transmitter
1. Disconnect the signal generator from the receiver. Monitor the
receiver’s unbalanced audio output with a 3.3 kΩ load and the
audio analyzer. Make sure the receiver’s Volume control is at its
maximum setting.
2. Replace the microphone cartridge on the T2 with the test head.
Set the unit’s Gain control to minimum and unmute the audio.
3. Inject a 775 mV, 1 kHz signal from the audio analyzer into the
adapter cable and verify the following:
S
the amplitude from receiver’s unbalanced output equals
400 mVrms ("90 mV)
S
thd = <0.75%
4. Change the frequency of the audio generator to 100 Hz and disengage the 400 Hz high-pass filter from the audio analyzer.
Verify that the audio level is –1.0 dB ("0.7 dB) relative to the
level measured in step 3.
5. Change the frequency of the audio generator to 10 kHz and reengage the 400 Hz high-pass filter. Verify that the audio level,
relative to that measured in step 3, is –3.5 dB, "2 dB.
Units That Pass
If the system components pass these tests and the microphone is
good, then the system is functioning as expected and shouldn’t require
tuning and alignment. Inform the customer that the product has retested
within specifications.

Service Procedures
Reference Material
The Shure Wireless System T Series User’s Guide describes the
product, tells how to operate it, and provides troubleshooting and technical data.
Special Equipment and Tools
In addition to the standard items described in the Wireless Service
Equipment manual, you will need:
S
to verify that the system is working properly, obtain the receiver
with which the transmitter is used (usually a T3 or T4); otherwise, use the modified SC4 receiver described in the equipment
manual
S
a small flat-blade screwdriver to remove the bezel
S
snap-ring pliers to remove and re-insert the retaining ring
S
hand-made high-impedance probe (see the Service Equipment
manual)
System Operating Frequencies
Each transmitter circuit board is marked with a group letter that identifies the range of frequencies on which the transmitter can operate. Note
that Table 1 applies only to T2 transmitters that are FCC-approved, and
Table 2 applies only to T2 transmitters that are ETSI-approved.
Frequency Coverage: Earlier models used the same family of RF
boards (with Groups A, B, and C) for all the frequencies offered worldwide at that time. Now there are separate board assemblies for units approved by the ETSI. If you have a frequency from Table 4, you have an
ETSI-approved model; if you have a frequency from Table 3, you have an
FCC-approved model.

Changing the Frequency
The operating frequency of the T2 transmitter may be changed within a specific Group by changing the crystal on the pc board. (For Group
information, see the preceding subsection). Check the transmitter for
proper operation before changing its operating frequency. After installing
the new crystal, perform the alignment procedures. Then run an operational test to ensure that the transmitter is functioning properly. Finally,
update the label to show the new frequency and letter identification code.

Service Procedures
Shure T2 Vocal Artist Microphone Transmitter
Note: To ensure proper operation, obtain the crystal from Shure and
verify that it operates within the frequency range of the pc board.
Since crystals are marked with the nominal oscillating frequency, not
with a letter code, you can use the following equation to determine
the frequency at which a transmitter will operate with a given crystal:
Carrier Frequency = (9 x nominal crystal freq. in MHz) – .09
FCC- and ETSI-Approved Models
To accommodate the different frequencies and requirements, Shure
supplies the T2 with different RF boards for FCC-approved models (used
in North America and other places) and ETSI-approved models (used in
Europe and other places). Although the RF alignment procedures are
similar for the two boards, there are some differences, especially in the
number of tuning stages and in the numbering of components and test
points. The audio-alignment procedures are the same for both versions
of the T2.
Note: Before the introduction of a distinct RF board for ETSI 300 922
requirements, all units shared the same RF and audio boards.
Drawings for Different Versions
At the back of this manual are diagrams of the circuit boards and
schematics for the original versions of the audio and RF boards as well
as for the current versions of the audio board, FCC-approved RF board,
and ETSI-approved RF board. Refer to the circuit-board diagrams for the
test points.
Alignment
The RF and audio alignments are generally done together, as a
single, continuous procedure. Before beginning, do the setup described
in the following subsection, “Test Conditions.” Unless specified for FCCor ETSI-approved models, the alignment procedures apply to all models.
Test Conditions
The following test conditions apply to all versions unless otherwise
specified:
S
An external 9-volt supply is connected to the battery terminals
(J101 and J102).
S
The Gain pot (R125) is set to its mid-range position.
S
The audio analyzer’s 400 Hz high-pass and 30 kHz low-pass
filters are pressed in.
FCC-Approved Units
1. Obtain a 50 Ω test cable for connecting the circuit boards to various test equipment. (To construct this cable, see “50 Ω Test
Cable Assembly” in the Wireless Service Equipment manual.)

C: Spurious Emissions (ETSI-Approved Models)
1. Set the spectrum analyzer as follows:
S
Scale: 10 dB/div
S
Start Frequency: 10 MHz
S
Stop Frequency:1 GHz
S
Reference level: 20 dBm

C226, but make sure that the power and spurious response remain within specification.
2. Check that 9 Vdc (±0.35 Vdc) is present at the head board +9 V
location (I133 on the audio board).
Audio Alignment (Both Models)
The audio boards on the FCC-approved and ETSI-approved models
are identical except for the pcb number printed on the board. (These
numbers differ because the boards are made as parts of larger assemblies for the two different models.)
The audio board has changed relatively little in the history of the T2.
Two examples of changes are the renumbering of the LEDs (the green
used to be D101, and the red, D102) and some slightly different designations (e.g., I1GN used to be IGND).
E: Setup
1. Disconnect the power supply from the T2.
2. Unsolder the test cable.
3. Replace C240 (domestic units) or C242 (ETSI units) on the RF
board.
4. Slide the board assembly, battery terminals first, into the test
handle: be sure to align the sides of the assembly with the handle’s inner tracks. Alternatively, slide the assembly through the
test ring.
5. Screw the audio test head into the handle or ring. Connect a
BNC-to-BNC cable between the audio analyzer and the test
head.
6. Reconnect the 9 V power supply to the battery terminals of the
T2.
7. Place the Mic switch in the “On” position. Verify that the green
power LED (D103) lights steadily.

button to perform the relative measurement for frequency response.
G: Frequency Response
1. Set the audio analyzer as follows:
S
Frequency: 100 Hz
S
400 Hz High-Pass filter: Disengaged
2. Verify that the audio level at the positive side of C107 is
–0.5 dB, ±0.5 dB, relative to the level you set in Step 2 of subsection F.
3. Reset the audio analyzer as follows:
S
400 Hz High-Pass filter: Engaged
S
Frequency: 10 kHz
4. Check that the audio level at the positive side of C107 is equal to
3 dB, ±0.5 dB, relative to the level you set in Step 2 of subsection F.
H: Deviation Reference Voltage
1. Turn off the T2 Power switch.
2. Obtain a receiver set to the same frequency as the T2 (this will
probably be the T3 or T4 that came with the T2).
Note: Alternatively, use a modified SC4 receiver for any transmitter. Instructions for modifying and using an SC4 are in the Wireless Service Equipment manual.
3. Attach an antenna or an unshielded cable to the RF signal generator. Set the RF signal generator as follows;

5. Set the receiver’s Volume control to the maximum position (full
clockwise rotation) and apply power to the receiver. On the T4,
set the Squelch control to its midpoint.
6. Measure the rms voltage developed across the unbalanced output of the receiver. The reading should be approximately 0 dBu
(775 mV), which corresponds to a deviation level of 15 kHz.
Record this voltage as the Deviation Reference Voltage.
Note: At this point you may want to press the Log/Lin button on
the audio analyzer (to measure in dBm) and then press the Ratio
button to perform the relative measurement in the next section.
7. Turn off the RF output from the signal generator.
I: Deviation Adjustment
1. Make sure that C240 is on the RF board, so that the antenna is
connected).
2. Remove the power-supply leads and attach a new 9 V battery.

reference voltage that you recorded earlier (see the end of the
preceding subsection).
J: Distortion Adjustment
1. Set the audio analyzer for “Distn” (total harmonic distortion).
2. Adjust R130 for minimum distortion out of the receiver (it should
measure less than 1%).

Bench Checks
The tests for power and audio apply to all T2 units. Those involving
the RF board differ for FCC-approved and ETSI-approved units; hence
this section includes two separate sets of procedures for RF testing.
Dc Power
n Verify that 9 Vdc (±0.35 Vdc) is present at I+9.0 (on the bottom
of the audio board—see Figure 6, page 33). If this voltage is low,
check it at I133. Trace the circuitry back to the power supply to
see where the loss occurs. Check:
S
power switch
S
bias on Q105
S
L101
S
circuit-board ground for 0 V
n If you have a short to ground from 9 V, try isolating different parts
of the circuit. Narrow it down to the RF or audio section. Look for
foil shorts, solder bridges, and capacitors that have been
installed backwards.
n Check for 5 Vdc (±0.25 Vdc) at I147. If the correct voltage is not
present, check I+5 (pin 7 of U101). Then check:
S
pin 13 of U101 for 9 V
S
values of R133, R135, and R137
Note: If you are measuring dc voltages at points where RF signals are present, use a 10 kΩ resistor at the probe to prevent
loading the circuit. To remove the RF signal, remove the crystal.
Audio
All the steps in this section comprise a methodical way of determining where the audio signal is being interrupted:
n Check for audio at pin 7 of U102. If it is not present, check that
the dc bias at pins 5, 6, and 7 of U102 is `4.5 Vdc (half the level of the supply voltage). If the correct voltage is not present:
S
Trace the circuitry: this bias derives from the 9 V line through
voltage divider R103 and R105, then through R106 to pin 5.
S
Look for open vias (through-hole connections between board
layers), foil shorts, incorrect parts, and bad connections.
n If there is audio at pin 7 of U102 but not at pin 14, check the dc
bias at pins 12 and 13 (`1.8 Vdc) and pin 1 (`3.7 Vdc). If the
correct voltage is not present:
25C1018 (CC)
S
Trace the circuitry: this dc bias proceeds from pin 9 of U101
through R107 to pin 12 of U102.
S
Check (a) the parts in the feedback path from pin 14 to
pin 13, (b) the parts connected to pin 7, and (c) the connections from U102 to U101.
23
Bench Checks
Shure T2 Vocal Artist Microphone Transmitter
n Check the connections from pin 14 of U102 to the next stage, to
the limiter (Q103), and to pin 15 of U101.
n Check the bias voltage (`4 Vdc) on pins 8, 9, and 10 of U102. If
the correct voltage is not present:
S
Make sure the Mic switch is set to “On.”
S
Trace the bias circuit from the 5 V line through R104 to
pin 10 of U102.
S
Check the values in the feedback path from pin 8 to pin 9 of
U102, and the path to Q104 and pin 16 of U101.
Distortion
n Make sure the analyzer’s 400 Hz high-pass and 30 kHz lowpass filters are pressed in.
n Pin 9 of U101 should read `1.8 Vdc.
n As you turn R130, the dc level on its wiper should change from
`1.5 V to 3.5 V. If it does not, check R129, C125, R130, R141,
R140, R126, and the parts tied to pin 9 of U101.
n Check the audio level.
n Lastly, replace D201 and Y201.
Frequency Problem: FCC-Approved Units
n Make sure the RF carrier is at least 10 dB higher than the spurious emissions, to allow the frequency counter to lock on.
n Check L209 for the proper group and make sure its core is not
cracked.
n Make sure the crystal (Y201) has the correct frequency.
n Check the dc bias for Q201 against the readings of a unit known
to be operating correctly.
n Make sure that D201 is the correct varactor and has 5 Vdc on its
cathode.
n Check the parts and values of the oscillator circuit (from I218 to
I230).
n Look for shorts and opens.
Low Output Power: FCC-Approved Units
For these checks, terminate the transmitter’s output with a 50 Ω load
between I210 and ground. If you have interconnected the audio and RF
boards for testing, temporarily remove C240 to disconnect the battery
antenna.
n Check the carrier output power after the oscillator stage (I230).
If there is no signal, refer to the preceding subsection, “Frequency Problem.”
The remaining steps perform basically similar diagnostics for each of
the three RF stages:
Bench Checks

25C1018 (CC)
Shure T2 Vocal Artist Microphone Transmitter
n Make sure the Board Group is the correct one for the desired
frequency.
n Stage 1: Make sure that rotating C217 360 degrees in either direction produces two separate peaks in the carrier output amplitude. If there is only one peak, check the color (value) of C217
and the values of L205, C225, C234, L202, and C233. Check
the bias on Q201. Lastly, replace Q201.
n Stage 2: Make sure that rotating C216 360 degrees in either direction produces two separate peaks in the carrier output amplitude. If there is only one peak, check the color (value) of C216
and the values of L204, C238, L210, C235, C222, and C226.
Check the bias on Q203. Lastly, replace Q203.
n Stage 3: Check the dc bias on Q204 and the values of all the
parts from the base of Q204 to I210. Lastly, replace Q204.
n If the power is slightly low and the spurious level is high, check
for wrong or open coils at L202, L210, and L206.
n Check the emitter bypass capacitors (C226 and C223) and the
collector bypass capacitors (C207 and C208), which can also
affect the tuning and power gain of the RF stages. If RF level is
not the same on both sides of one of these capacitors, that part
is probably defective.
Excessive Current Drain: FCC-Approved Units
n Try readjusting C216 for lower current drain while maintaining
output power to specification. If the current drain is still excessive (the factory setting is 35 mA), check for the following:
S
short
S
wrong resistor value
S
defective capacitor
S
correct value of R219 for the frequency group
n As a last resort, try changing Q204.
Deviation: FCC-Approved Units
n If R217 on the RF board cannot be adjusted to obtain a "15 kHz
deviation, try to isolate the problem to the audio or RF section by
doing the following:
S
If I218 on the RF board does not measure –2.2 dBV
(775 mV), refer to the “Audio” section, page 23.
S
If I218 has the right level, check R217, C220, C227, R208,
R216, D201, R209, L209, and C214. Also make sure that
the cathode of D201 is being supplied with a 5 Vdc bias from
the 5 V Line through R216 and R208. The value of C214 is
critical to the deviation sensitivity.
n As a last resort, try replacing D201 and Y201.
n Make sure the carrier is good: you need that to get any deviation.

Frequency Problem: ETSI-Approved Units
n Make sure the RF carrier is at least 10 dB higher than the spurious emissions, to allow the frequency counter to lock on.
n Check L201 for the proper group and make sure its core is not
cracked.
n Make sure the crystal (Y201) has the correct frequency.
n Check the dc bias for Q201:
VC = 8.83 V
VB = 0.97 V
VE = 0.32 V
n Make sure that D201 is the correct varactor and has 5 Vdc on its
cathode.
n Check the parts and values of the oscillator circuit.
n Look for shorts and opens.
Low Output Power: ETSI-Approved Units
For these checks, terminate the transmitter’s output with a 50 Ω load
between TP6 and ground. If you have interconnected the audio and RF
boards for testing, temporarily remove C242 to disconnect the battery
antenna.
n Check the carrier output power after the oscillator stage (TP5). If
there is no signal, refer to the preceding subsection, “Frequency
Problem.”
The remaining steps perform basically similar diagnostics for each of
the four RF stages:
n Make sure the Board Group is the correct one for the desired
frequency.
n Stage 1: Make sure that rotating C214 360 degrees in either direction produces two separate peaks in the carrier output amplitude. If there is only one peak, check the values of C214, L202,
C208, C244, C210, L203, C213, and C215. Check the bias on
Q201. Lastly, replace Q201.
n Stage 2: Make sure that rotating C222 360 degrees in either direction produces two separate peaks in the carrier output amplitude. If there is only one peak, check the values of C222, L204,
C216, C245, C219, L205, C221, and C224, Check the bias on
Q202. Lastly, replace Q202.
n Stage 3: Make sure that rotating C226 360 degrees in either direction produces two separate peaks in the carrier output amplitude. If there is only one peak, check the values of C226, L206,
C227, C229, L207, C230, and C232. Check the bias on Q203.
Lastly, replace Q203.
n Stage 4: Check the dc bias on Q204 and the values of all the
parts from the base of Q204 to TP6. Lastly, replace Q204.

C227, and C234) and the collector bypass capacitor for Q203
(C228), which can also affect the tuning and power gain of the
RF stages:
S

S
The RF level between the collector of one transistor and the
base of the next should drop approximately 10 dB. Check
any stage that drops more than 12 dB.

Replacement Parts and Drawings
On the next page, the parts are listed according to the reference
designations from the pc boards and schematics. Parts shown on the
circuit diagram and not listed below are available at most electronic parts
distributors.
On the pages following the parts lists are the drawings of the printed
circuit boards and the schematics.
Product Changes
This section briefly describes significant changes as of this writing to
the T2.
RF Boards: The original RF board supported both North American
and a limited number of European frequencies. There are now two RF
boards. A slightly revised version of the original board, with a new layout,
supports only the frequencies for FCC-approved units, and a new board
supports a greatly expanded list of frequencies for ETSI-approved units.
RF Tuning on ETSI-Approved Units: C216 has been changed to a
variable capacitor, adding a stage in the tuning. Associated capacitor
C245 has also been changed. See the schematic for the frequency-dependent values of this capacitor.
Combined RF and Audio Board Numbers: Because the factory
now assembles the two boards as a single panel before separating
them, there is now a single part number for each combination: 90_8690
for the RF and audio boards on FCC-approved units, and 90_8705 for the
RF and audio boards on ETSI-approved units. When ordering, use the
appropriate assembly number but specify whether you want just the RF
board, just the audio board, or both. Note further that the audio boards
from the two assemblies are identical except for the part number printed
on the bottom.
Quad Op Amp: The earlier part (manufactured by Raytheon) was
replaced; the former value of associated resistor R107 was 100 kΩ.
LEDs and Layout: The LEDs were rearranged and renumbered, and
transistor Q108 and associated circuits were added. In addition, the audio layout was changed. These changes do not greatly affect the audio
alignment.
BG 3.1 Microphone: The earlier T230 models were supplied with
BG 3.0 microphone cartridges. The newer T231 models are supplied with
BG 3.1 cartridges. The earlier models will accept the new cartridges.
ID Resistors: To help assemblers identify the RF board used on
ETSI-approved units, the factory has added resistors R259 and R261.
They are not functional.
Frequency Changes: The “C” and “D” revisions to the ETSI RF
boards primarily consist of minor corrections to the drawings, adding the
“S” frequency and “K” group, and redesignating the “J” frequency “BB.”
