and rotating torque, and tremendous braking forces.
All models now employ DC motors that deliver even
higher torque and unparalleled controllability.
Controller D
The new “Controller D” control box features a built-in computer
interface. Fully control the rotator manually or via software. Also use
your PC to program operating parameters into

HERALD 3.1
FOR GEL-CELLS or LEAD ACID BATTERIES
Features: Precision temperature tracking voltage
reference & three mode charging sequence based on
Unitrode UC3906 chip. Three distinct operating states.
Initially the charging current is limited to a pre-set bulk
value and when the battery voltage reaches a specific
level the charger enters the absorption mode and tops
off the battery with an elevated voltage. After top off, the
charger enters the maintenance mode where it maintains
the battery at a precision float level value. This charger
can be connected to the battery indefinitely, it will not
over charge the battery. If a load is applied to the battery
while the charger is connected, the charger will contribute
it’s bulk current to the load. When the load is removed,
the charger current will flow into the battery. If the load
discharges the battery sufficiently, the charger will repeat
the three state process described above when the load is
removed. This is a low RF noise linear - not a switching
charger, well suited for radio use. See review by W1ZR in
MAR 04 QST. Weighs 10 pounds and measures 7 1/2 “ W
x 8” D x 4 3/4" H. Output cables available, see website.

Alinco delivers more operating fun for less.
Dual Band Dynamos
for your pocket
or your car!
DR-635T 2M/440MHZ
Mobile/Base Transceiver
Dual Band Transceiver with Full Duplex Capability
Alinco’s new DR-635T is an easy-to-use, high-quality
transceiver for simplex and repeater operations on the
VHF and UHF bands. With cross-band repeat, full duplex capability and a remote mountable control head, the DR-635T
features newly designed RF circuitry that delivers increased resistance to interference from adjacent signals. Plus, a new
protection circuit automatically lowers the power setting whenever the internal temperature rises. This protects the radio when
used as a cross-band repeater. But, that’s just the beginning:
Large, 6 character alphanumeric
display with freely and separately
selectable three color display
illumination in blue, violet or orange
for TX/RX/stand-by
●
Multiple scan modes and extended
receive capabilities including
broadcast FM
●
Backlit DTMF microphone allows
direct frequency entry and more
●
TCXO that is stable to ±2.5 ppm
●
●
Narrow FM mode
VHF: 50/20/5, UHF: 35/20/5 watt
power output settings
●
Power supply voltage display
●
●
Ignition key on/off feature & theft
alarm feature
●
CTCSS, DCS encode/decode and
DTMF encode functions plus
European Tone Bursts
200 Memory channels that can
operate in splits of 80ch/VHF,
80ch/UHF and 40ch freely
programmable with
1 call channel each for VHF and
UHF operation
●
Thanks to
Alinco,
you can
have a
dual band
dynamo
in your
pocket
AND in
your car!
●
Extended receive from
108.000 ~173.995MHz /
335.000 ~ 479.995MHz /
87.5 ~ 107.995MHz, transmits
from 144.000 ~ 147.995MHz /
430.000 ~ 449.995MHz, plus
reception on AM aircraft band and
the ability to operate on MARS
frequencies
●
Can also operate with Alinco’s
optional EJ-50U digital data packet
board that fits inside or the EJ-47U
digital voice board
DJ-C7T 2M/440MHZ “Pocket-size” HT
Hams are packing some serious radio power in their pockets with the DJ-C7T, the new dual band mini HT. Alinco
led the way in breakthrough miniature electronics technology with its revolutionary “credit card” size transceivers.
Now, the DJ-C7T offers a “pocket size” HT that’s small in size but BIG in added memories and modes.

About the ARRL
The national association for
Amateur Radio
The seed for Amateur Radio was planted in the 1890s, when Guglielmo Marconi began his experiments in
wireless telegraphy. Soon he was joined by dozens, then hundreds, of others who were enthusiastic about sending
and receiving messages through the air—some with a commercial interest, but others solely out of a love for this
new communications medium. The United States government began licensing Amateur Radio operators in 1912.
By 1914, there were thousands of Amateur Radio operators—hams—in the United States. Hiram Percy Maxim,
a leading Hartford, Connecticut inventor and industrialist, saw the need for an organization to band together this
fledgling group of radio experimenters. In May 1914 he founded the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) to
meet that need.
Today ARRL, with approximately 150,000 members, is the largest organization of radio amateurs in the United
States. The ARRL is a not-for-profit organization that:
• promotes interest in Amateur Radio communications and experimentation
• represents US radio amateurs in legislative matters, and
• maintains fraternalism and a high standard of conduct among Amateur Radio operators.
At ARRL headquarters in the Hartford suburb of Newington, the staff helps serve the needs of members. ARRL
is also International Secretariat for the International Amateur Radio Union, which is made up of similar societies
in 150 countries around the world.
ARRL publishes the monthly journal QST, as well as newsletters and many publications covering all aspects of
Amateur Radio. Its headquarters station, W1AW, transmits bulletins of interest to radio amateurs and Morse code
practice sessions. The ARRL also coordinates an extensive field organization, which includes volunteers who
provide technical information and other support services for radio amateurs as well as communications for publicservice activities. In addition, ARRL represents US amateurs with the Federal Communications Commission and
other government agencies in the US and abroad.
Membership in ARRL means much more than receiving QST each month. In addition to the services already
described, ARRL offers membership services on a personal level, such as the ARRL Volunteer Examiner Coordinator Program and a QSL bureau.
Full ARRL membership (available only to licensed radio amateurs) gives you a voice in how the affairs of the
organization are governed. ARRL policy is set by a Board of Directors (one from each of 15 Divisions). Each year,
one-third of the ARRL Board of Directors stands for election by the full members they represent. The day-to-day
operation of ARRL HQ is managed by a Chief Executive Officer.
No matter what aspect of Amateur Radio attracts you, ARRL membership is relevant and important. There would
be no Amateur Radio as we know it today were it not for the ARRL. We would be happy to welcome you as a
member! (An Amateur Radio license is not required for Associate Membership.) For more information about
ARRL and answers to any questions you may have about Amateur Radio, write or call:
